The job market is becoming more crowded as new jobs are created every year, according to new research from McKinsey & Co. and research firm IBISWorld.
The McKinsey survey found that the number of job seekers seeking jobs is expected to climb to 3.1 million this year from 2.9 million in 2018.
The new job seekers will have an average age of 38, and are looking for jobs with a salary of at least $100,000.
According to the survey, nearly half of jobseekers are currently unemployed, and half of those jobseekers have been laid off from their previous jobs.
In addition, the survey found only 30% of job applicants are on a paid leave policy, and 43% have been fired due to a job loss.
The median pay for a full-time job in the U.S. is $45,917.
However, the median salary for a part-time position is $27,000, according the report.
McKinsey said it will update its research in 2019 and 2020, but said it is certain that the trend will continue to rise.
Job seekers can also use the app to search for jobs online, including those in their field of expertise, such as finance, legal and healthcare.
McKeen’s also surveyed over 1,500 job seekers and found that almost half of them were able to find a job within two months, compared to only 33% of those surveyed in 2018, according.
The survey also found that nearly two thirds of jobless job seekers have been offered a job by their previous employer.
McNamara, a former corporate recruiter, said she is surprised that the job search industry is now saturated.
She said jobseekers need to be careful about their search strategies.
“I’m not sure why there are so many job seekers,” McNamara said.
“There’s an abundance of available opportunities, but if people are looking to work for a company and want to get out of their comfort zone and look for a new job, they need to make sure that they’re not doing anything that’s a risk to their career.”
The survey also noted that job seekers are more likely to be in a job they’re excited about, and that there are more job openings for women than men.
In 2018, nearly 70% of women who applied for a job said they were looking for work with a similar skill set as the position they are applying for, while only 34% of men said they are looking in a similar career.
