The first quarter of 2019 is upon us. We are experiencing one of the tightest labor markets in U.S. history. Unemployment rates are near a 50-year low and qualified accounting, finance and information technology (IT) professionals remain in high demand.
Further, businesses are reporting unprecedented numbers of open positions and record-high plans to hire accounting, finance and IT professionals for at least the next 12 months.
Because of such high demand, some hiring managers are having trouble finding qualified accounting, finance and IT professionals for their teams—often times offering competitive salary and benefits packages in order to attract and retain individuals.
