  • After a slow patch, hiring likely to pick up

    The Boston Globe - 09/08/2013

    The New England Economic Partnership, a nonprofit forecasting group, projects that construction will experience the strongest job growth over the next five years, increasing employment by more than 25 percent by the end of 2017.

    “Construction was hit hardest in the recession,” said Alan Clayton-Matthews, a Northeastern University economics professor. “Over the coming years it will add the most jobs, and that will be restoring the jobs that essentially were lost in the recession.”

    Other industries that drive the state’s economy are also projected to experience solid job growth. Employment in professional and business services is forecast to grow more than 13 percent over the next five years. Leisure and hospitality is projected to increase employment by nearly 12 percent.
