There are 790,000 Open Job Postings in the Retail Industry
Yes, you read that number right. According to a recent article published by The Wall Street Journal, as of this August, there are 790,000 job openings available in the retail industry in the US. That’s an increase of 165,000 from this time last year. A clear indication that the so-called retail apocalypse is not what it seems. Yes, some larger stores have closed their doors this year but even more e-commerce and small businesses are expanding their retail footprint. While the economy continues to be on the up-tick, these store owners are hiring. A lot.
