October 2014 Newsletter for Accounting Professionals from Diane Delgado LeMaire @ CFS

October 2014

Industry News and Updates

Where has time gone this year? I just realized this newsletter should have been published in September. I am sorry about the delay, so lets get right to it! Houston leads the nation in job growth again according to the GHP. We added 112,000 jobs from July 2013 to July 2014. Furthermore, since the bottom of the recession our economy actually added a total of 420,000 jobs. Houston’s unemployment rate sits around 5.4% now. According to the GHP this is full employment for our local market. That means if it drops below 5.4% there will be a bigger war for talent (shortage), thus driving up salaries (demand).

This growth is not only coming from our booming oil & gas industry, but also from all the people moving to Houston. With the increase in our population, the demands for a lot of specific services is also increasing. It looks like the price of oil has been dropping a lot lately. That always worries me, but our nation is also in a place where we are able to produce much more than we ever have been able too. So that is the basic theory of supply and demand at work. I have been told not to worry about the price of oil unless is dips under 70 to 75 dollars and we are definitely not there yet. So, it looks like Houston continues to be one of the best places to be!

Below you will find a list of our openings. Please keep in mind that CFS is looking for recruiters too. We are looking for Accountants who are 1 to 2 years into their career who might not be happy doing that role and would prefer to be in a sales/recruiting role. Please contact me for more details.

Until next time..
