The Job Market May Never Look the Same

As America moves toward economic recovery, we might find that the job market may never look the same. Long gone are the days when the American worker stuck with one job or company throughout their entire career. What we’re more likely to see in the years to come is not only numerous jobs and companies linked to any given worker’s experience, but even multiple jobs performed for various companies during the same time period. This is reflective of the trend toward companies deciding to maintain a smaller core employee base that is augmented with temporary/contingent employees on an as needed project and work volume basis. This model is something that has been used quite successfully in the IT industry. For more on this topic, read “The New Employment Model Demands Worker Flexibility,”which ran in Philadelphia’s newspaper, The Bulletin.
