BCS notes that Kansas reached its highest employment rate in late 2013.

(PRWEB) July 08, 2014

The Leawood Kansas Career Firm of BCS follows employment trends and the job market.

While the job market added 288,000 jobs* in June 2014, reports indicate that Kansas is behind, but that may not reflect the entire picture.

BCS in Leawood Kansas (near Overland Park) reports, ”The jobs decline across the state is only one-tenth of a percent, and with the recent announcement that Targeted Metrics, a national marketing company will add more than 500 jobs to the Kansas City market means that nearly one-third of that deficit will be depleted.”

Six other Midwest states have shown increases in jobs over the past six months however, it appears that Kansas with its reported addition of 50,000 jobs between 2011 and 2013, has been ahead of the curve with only a recent leveling off of jobs in the past six months. Three of the Midwest states adding jobs in the past six months only showed about one to two percent in job growth.

BCS notes that Kansas reached its highest employment rate in late 2013. “The job market is tough, and has been for some years, even with the growth spurt from 2011 through 2013. BCS feels that the Kansas City area still offers great hope for those who conduct a proactive search, especially in the higher paying senior level, managerial, and professional positions.” According to BCS these positions, although not well advertised, “Hold a great deal of promise for those who know how to create an effective job search strategy, and have the proper tools and support to do so.”
