With the New Year approaching, the window to secure your new dream role is closing. Luckily Glassdoor.com’s chief economist, Dr. Andrew Chamberlain has revealed the five biggest jobs trends to watch in 2017 along with the five hiring trends that defined 2016.
The insights come as part of a new Glassdoor Economic Research report, outlining Chamberlain's 2017 predictions for the U.S. labor market including why automation will start to affect all jobs in 2017; why the gig economy has hit its limit; how data science will transform HR and recruiting; and more.
With record numbers of unfilled jobs, historically low unemployment and rising pay, America's labor market is one of the strongest in decades. In many ways, 2016 was a landmark year for hiring," said Chamberlain. "However, technology and automation are changing the way we work forever, creating both opportunities and challenges for 2017 and beyond. In this environment, the future of jobs, employer branding and recruiting is top of mind for job seekers, employees and employers."
