NOTEBOOK – ONE GOOD READ: 2021 grads face increased opportunities in job market, but face increased competition, too


Do you know someone who will be graduating from college this spring? The good news is the number of jobs available is higher than it was before the coronavirus pandemic shut things down last  year. The bad news is there is increased competition for those jobs as 2020 graduates who delayed their search may be entering the market now, too. They also are facing stiff competition from people who were terminated over the past year and looking to reenter the job market. According to data from payroll company Gusto, workers under the age of 25 were terminated during the spread of COVID-19 at rates 79% higher than older workers. The top industries that are hiring are tech, financial services, education and professional services, according to Handshake data published in this Wall Street Journal article. According to Keith Wolf, managing director of Houston-based recruiting firm Murray Resources, the current job market is “as hot as I’ve seen it in 10 years.”
