With the average cost of college tuition increasing each year in the U.S., it’s no wonder that 8 out of 10 families listed cost as the deciding factor when selecting a college. In fact, according to US News and World Report, the average price for “in-state tuition and fees at ranked public schools rose by 4%, and the average out-of-state price increased by the same percent. Similar to previous year-over-year increases, the average tuition and fees at private colleges climbed 3%.” For the 2019-2020 year, the price for public college (in-state) hovered at $10,116 with private college tuition and fees averaging at $36,801.

For the US job market, the Bureau of Labor and Statistics releases thousands of data sets each month defining unemployment rates, employment projections, top occupations, and income levels and more. Interestingly, however, data is also collected about workers themselves. This is particularly applicable to the recruiting and staffing industry, as it provides some insight into who is looking for a job, in terms of why they may be unemployed and what types of jobs might be of interest to them based on their current situation.

BRIGHTMOVE CEO HONORED AS A FIRST COAST TECH LEADER

BrightMove CEO Honored as a First Coast Tech Leader

by Heidi Green on 2019-09-27T17:17:00Z

“As someone who has been leading technology innovations in Jacksonville for the past 22 years, being recognized as a Tech Leader of the Year is humbling and meaningful. I have lived my whole life in Jacksonville and the areas surrounding North Florida. People who aren’t from Jacksonville don’t realize how hard it is to break into tech, especially if you aren’t from Silicon Valley and other major tech metropolitan areas. Investors don’t take you as seriously as they do startups from Silicon Valley; making it harder to receiving backing and funding. All 15 people deserve the recognition for the perseverance and innovation they must possess to be a modern tech leader in the Jacksonville market. Congratulations to all those who have been recognized.”
