Key Takeaways:

  • Job listings may take a dip from April to May.
  • The labor market is trending back to pre-pandemic levels.
  • As the great resignation continues, it is likely this could affect the labor market by the end of 2022.

The labor market is projected to continue to get back to pre-pandemic status as the number of job listings is projected to be still on a slight decline.

According to the U.S. Labor Department’s job report for April 2022, employers added 428,000 jobs and the unemployment rate is still holding steady at 3.6%. The market has been consistent over the last month and is remaining stable. 

According to our projected data it is likely that the number of job listings will see a decrease for the month of May with a 21% decline in open positions. But, many experts expect the great resignation to continue,  and it is projected that 1 in 5 Americans will switch careers by the end of 2022. Will this inflate the current market again?
