Americans’ assessment of job market slightly worse

WASHINGTON, D.C. — About four in 10 Americans (39 percent) in August say it is a good time to find a quality job, Gallup reported. Though this is down slightly from the 43 percent who said the same last month, the latest figure remains within the 38 percent to 45 percent range Gallup has recorded for this question in 2015 and 2016.

Americans’ perceptions of the job market’s health in 2015 and 2016 show significant improvement compared with their views of it from 2008 to 2013. During that period, the percentage saying it was a good time to find a quality job dipped as low as 8 percent. Views of job seekers’ prospects improved steadily from 2012 to 2014, and have hovered near 40 percent since.

The latest decrease in the percentage saying it is a good time to find a quality job is within the margin of error for the poll, and comes despite Americans’ continuing highs in perceptions of hiring at their place of employment.
