Cunningham Financial Group Educates Unemployed Louisiana Residents about Shifts in the Job Market as U.S. Joblessness Trends Downward


Though the national unemployment rate has fallen below 8%, this Louisiana insurance agency hopes to make locals aware of shifts in the job market to better prepare them for what lies ahead.

Natchitoches, Louisiana (PRWEB) October 31, 2012

Although the national unemployment rate fell to 7.8% in September, the lowest it's been since January of 2009, roughly 339,000 Americans continue to seek unemployment aid from the federal government. In addition, the types of jobs Americans are finding continue to shift. For Louisiana residents, they could mean the need to go back to school to get the necessary requirements to survive in today's job market.

The insurance professionals at Cunningham Financial Group, a Louisiana insurance agency, hope to empower the local workforce by providing education about shifts to expect in the job market and to remind residents not to go without health insurance in Louisiana, even in the direst circumstances.

Here's what to expect:

  •     According to a recent Society for Human Resource Management survey of human resource professionals, 46% said most jobs require a higher level of education than in the past. Even more said most of today's jobs require technical skills.
    Higher education will most likely be a requirement in unexpected industries such as manufacturing, health care and state and local government.     According to an IBISWorld Inc. special report, here are some of the fastest growing industries in the U.S.: green and sustainable building construction, generic pharmaceutical manufacturing, for-profit universities, pilates and yoga studios, solar panel manufacturing, social network game development, 3D printer manufacturing, and hot sauce production (true story!).
