Unemployment Rate by Sector

Job numbers in the medical and science industry are expected to swell over the next decade. In November 2013, the medical and science sector had an unemployment rate of only 3.9%, well below the national average of 7%, meaning HR managers are having to drill down even deeper to source the very best people.

Adecco has been abel to place a substantial amount of medical and science candidates, particularly in California, Arizona, and North Carolina.

Unemployment Rate by State

While Adecco’s placement rates continue to rise, some areas have been more difficult than others to fill.

In states that have some of the country’s sparsest populations per square mil, Adecco has played a key role in keeping the unemployment rate well below the national average.

Increased confidence from employers is a sure sign that economic recovery is building momentum — as one indicator shows, American GDP shot up by 4.1% in Q3 of 2013, boosted by a surge in exports and fixed investments.

Adecco’s roster of candidates possess the skills that are in demand across the board, but also are ahead of the trend in key verticals showing growth.
