June 2018 Career Conference

Today and Friday, the Cameron-Brooks team and June Candidates will travel to Charlotte, NC to begin our Third Career Conference of 2018!  We are continuing to see strong demand from our client companies looking for standout, well-prepared JMOs.  We are excited to have a great group of companies, represented by hiring managers and over 30 Cameron-Brooks alumni, ready to fill open positions with their companies!  We also have an outstanding group of JMO candidates attending this Conference.  As I write this blog post, the latest unemployment rate numbers published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics have the National unemployment rate at 3.8% while the unemployment rate for those over 25 years old with a college degree (i.e., the JMO demographic) is now at 2.0%.  These are the lowest statistics in my nearly 8 years working at Cameron-Brooks.  A note of interest: there were 223,000 jobs created in April and the economy has been averaging 191,000 jobs created per month over the past 12 months.   So, while things are certainly not perfect, it is a good sign for our economy and those conducting a career search. Our June Career Conference candidates will average just over 12 interviews at this Conference, again representing this positive trend.
