I was “live” on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange on Friday morning to discuss the terrific jobs report. The great news? Unemployment in the USA is 4.7% and the number of jobs nationwide increased by 235,000.
Coincidentally, we’ve got 262,317 jobs live on Ladders’ site right now.

That’s more than 6,000 jobs that pay over $250K.
11,000 jobs that pay between $200,000 and $250,000.
And more than 100,000 jobs that pay over $100K.
As I mention in the interview, this is the strongest employment market we’ve seen in a decade. It is very encouraging to see the participation rate up — that means more and more of the people who were previously discouraged about finding work are coming back into the market. And, importantly, the jobs are being created to fulfill their needs.
It looks like we’ve got a great year ahead of us, Members! We’ll be here to help you manage, market and move up in your career…
I’m rooting for you!
