Nashville Job Market - Are Increases Happening?

In Nashville, the job market continues to see some improvements. Those job increases continue to be an important part of the rebuilding of the city's economy. We are seeing jobs come in and they are doing so at a slow but steady pace. The question is, are the citizens of Nashville feeling the job increases recently announced by the Department of Labor? That is the main focus for many people who hear about these increases and wonder where those jobs are.

In Nashville, Jobs Are Out There

In the city of Nashville, jobs are coming in. There are seasonal positions out there, which is good. There are also a number of corporate positions opening up. The IT industry is growing, too. However, the rate of job growth is not as big or as significant as what many people would have liked it to be. That's worrisome for those who see the latest reports and wonder when it will happen for them.

The job growth numbers in Nashville are growing, but the country's numbers remain impressive. In the month of January, the country saw an addition of about 243,000 jobs to the payrolls. That increase, is a good thing overall especially since it has dropped the unemployment numbers to 8.3 percent. This drop in unemployment is the first time the number has been this low since February of 2008. The number of jobs added is also twice as much as what the economists predicted. This is good news, especially if these jobs continue to happen in Nashville itself.
