Strong job growth drives jobless rate to 16-year low

By Bill at July 11, 2017 01:44
Filed Under: Immigration News
The U.S. created 222,000 new jobs in June as hiring accelerated in the spring, showing that companies are still finding ways to add staff despite a growing shortage of skilled workers.

The U.S. is forecast to grow twice as fast in the second quarter as it did in the first three months of the year. The job market remains in good shape eight years into the economic expansion.

The unemployment rate, meanwhile, rose to 4.4% from 4.3% in May as more people entered the labor force in search of work. The jobless rate had fallen to a 16-year low in May.

Filed Under: Immigration News
We reported a few weeks ago that Fall is the Peak Hiring Season in the US, the Labor Department's announcment on October 3 confirmed our analysis. 

U.S. employers added 248,000 new jobs in September. This burst of hiring has helped cut the jobless rate to 5.9 percent, the lowest since July 2008. Many economists consider an unemployment rate of 5.5% as a healthy level.

New Feature: H1B Visa Report Filter

By Bill at August 10, 2010 20:13
Filed Under: Tips and Features

We might have too many reports and variables when analyzing H1B Visa and Green Card data!

To help our user navigate our visa reports, we just added a H1B Visa Report Filter to every 2010 H1B Visa report. It is on the top left corner of every visa report. It has 2 or 3 levels of selection depending on the type of reports you are generating. You can use it to generate 4 types of h1b visa reports: Occupation, Industry, Economic Sector and State.

If you choose to generate reports in Occupation and Industry, you will have the options to specify thirld levle filter: Sub Occupation or Sub Industry. For reports in Economic Sector and States, you will not be given the option.

We are considering add City level filter under state report, if you think this is a good idea, please let us know so we will assign this feature a higher priority.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask on our Immigration Forum!
