Job market red hot for those with the right skills
Boston Globe - 09/07/2014
The state unemployment rate, 5.6 percent, is near the six-year low as the state has added nearly 70,000 jobs over the past year, a pace not seen since the dot-com boom at the beginning of the century. Earlier this year, the state surpassed the all-time employment record reached just before the boom went bust in early 2001.
“The job picture looks better than it has in a while,” said Alan Clayton-Matthews, an economist at Northeastern University. “But you have to have the right skills. That’s the key. You have to have the right skills.”
