2019 was a busy year for job seekers, employers and for us on the Medix Impact Podcast! With the rapid pace of change affecting the workforce, now is the perfect time to take a step back and review what we learned. Then, we can use those lessons to get a head start on the 2020 employment trends to watch!
The last year in hiring found job seekers and those currently employed faced with a great deal of highs and lows. While the economy may have maintained historically low unemployment rates, uncertainty still swirls throughout the workforce. In our recent research paper, “Hiring is 2020“, we identified some of the on-going issues contributing to this cloud of uneasiness. These factors include a phenomenon known as underemployment, the growing skills gap and the on-going expansion of flexible work options.
In the final episode of the Medix Impact Podcast for 2019, we dig in on these major 2020 employment trends to watch for on the horizon. We also take a look back on the best practices that can help job seekers stand out in the tight labor market of the future. From LinkedIn advice to answering tricky job interview questions, we covered a lot of ground on the pod this year – and we’re excited to continue sharing advice in the year ahead!
