Job Openings Hit a Two-Year High

After a year of layoffs, furloughs, and record unemployment due to COVID-19, the U.S. saw a record number of job opportunities open in February 2021, according to the Labor Department’s Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS).

JOLTS reported that the number of available positions increased to 7.37 million in February, the highest number the Labor Department has seen since in two years.

With expanding access to vaccinations, employers are increasingly seeking candidates to fill open roles.

“We are feeling extremely encouraged by the recent JOLTS report,” said Andrew Chayut, Managing Partner at Green Key Resources. “Our recruiters have seen an increased demand for hiring in the last few months and have been busy getting people back to work.”
