“As the unemployment rate falls, continued hiring does draw some people back into the work force, but many companies do struggle to find specialized skills.”
Kim Wallace, Hire Dynamics Executive Vice President
As covered by the Atlanta Journal-Consitution, Georgia has reached a record low unemployment rate of 3.3%, the lowest in 43 years. EVP Kim Wallace notes that even as more people are drawn back into the workforce, highly-skilled positions remain the most difficult to fill. Seasonal hiring and holiday shopping have remained strong, keeping economic momentum up through the end of the year.
