January 2018 Newsletter for Accounting & Finance Professionals

Industry News and Updates

Happy New Year! This year started off with a BANG for our Houston office. I don’t think I have had a busier start in January in all my years of recruiting. The Greater Houston Partnership forecast for 2018 actually calls for our region to create over 45,000 jobs. According to the Partnership, a lot of that is driven by the ties to the US& Global economy.

Here as some specific examples, they gave with regards to the US economy:

  • Detroit produced more than 18 million light-duty automobiles and trucks in ’16. A typical family car contains 150 pounds of rubber, 200 pounds of fluids, and 250 pounds of plastics. These components likely come from the plastics and chemical plants along the Houston Ship Channel.
  • The value of U.S. manufacturing output exceeded $6.1 trillion in ’14, and more than 6.2 trillion cubic feet of natural gas was consumed in the process. Much of that gas is found, produced and delivered by companies based in Houston.
  • Americans drove more than 3.2 trillion miles in ’16. One-fourth of the nation’s refining capacity is located on the Texas Gulf Coast.

Here are some additional examples the Partnership provided with regards to our global ties:

  • Metro Houston ranks second only to New York in value of exports.
  • Nearly 5,000 Houston-area companies are engaged in global commerce.
  • Global trade supports nearly 450,000 jobs in the region.
  • The Port of Houston ranks first in the U.S. in foreign tonnage.
  • Many of Houston’s public companies derive a significant portion of their revenues from their overseas operations. The average is 30 percent, but companies such as Halliburton and Oceaneering receive more than half their revenues from international sales and operations.

I am very optimistic about 2018 for Houston. I *think* the worst is finally behind us! I know this is the time of the year bonuses are paid, so let me know if you are ready to explore the job market. We don’t have to start a very active search, but certainly let me know about that “dream job” you would love to hear about.

Follow-up Tips to Get the Job Written by Alan Carniol

3 Follow up Tips to Get the Job

Find out how to create a positive impression to increase your chances of getting the job.

Following through after an interview is an important part of being successful in your job search.

To grab the hiring manager’s attention, it’s important to follow up at every stage as you continue your job search journey. Here are some tips to help:

1. Networking

Networking is important to build new relationships. It’s one of the most effective ways to get to know more people in your field and brush shoulders with those that may be relevant to your industry.

Networking is not about asking people for job referrals. It’s about connections, learning how to converse with different kinds of people in your field, and building relationships over time. Company parties, conferences and parties with friends are perfect opportunities to build your network.

Don’t forget to bring business cards with you and ask for contact information when meeting new people. Ask them out for a coffee or light lunch if they’re free as a chance to get to know them better. As soon as you get home, remember to add their information to your contact list.

2. Informational Interviews

Absolutely do your homework before entering a new field or industry. Talk to people already in the field to help broaden your network and answer questions you may have about the company.

As you reach out to people willing to help, don’t forget to send them a brief thank-you note. You can extend your appreciation by suggesting offers of help and keeping in touch.

3. Job Interviews

Following a job interview, sending a short thank-you email is a good step. Make sure you personalize each note. Doing so reflects focus and genuine gratitude, both of which can increase your chances of getting the job.

Enjoy the search!

Houston Employment Update from GHP

The Houston-The Woodlands-Sugar Land metro area created 46,000 jobs in ’17. That’s a
significant improvement from ’16 when the region created 18,700 jobs and ’15 when the
region created only 200. Several sectors performed better than expected, a few worse.
The energy sector shaved 400 jobs, with losses in exploration and production nearly
offsetting gains in oil field services.

As of late summer, the construction sector was on track to lose more than 10,000 jobs in
’17. The post-Harvey boom helped reverse that trend, with construction finishing at a net
loss of only 800 jobs for the year.

Manufacturing recorded a robust gain of 8,800 jobs. Fabricated metal products (e.g.,
pipes, valves, flanges and structural steel) added 5,400 jobs while machinery
manufacturing shed 4,100. This is a bit of a conundrum since both are tied to the rig count, which finished the year with 929 rigs operating in North America, up from 658 at the end of ’16. Non-durables (i.e., goods which are quickly consumed or become part of a larger product) recorded a loss of 1,500 jobs, also a surprise given the recent expansion of Houston’s chemical sector.

Wholesale trade, still retrenching after the energy downturn, cut 2,000 jobs. Retail, facing weak wage growth and the inroads of e-commerce, posted a gain of 2,800 jobs. That’s well below the average 6,200 jobs the sector creates in non-recession years.

Financial activities (e.g., banking, insurance and real estate) added 3,800 jobs, a 2.4
percent annual growth rate. The average growth rate for non-recession years is 2.3
percent. Nearly three-fourths of the 14,900 jobs created in professional and business services were in employment services, i.e., contract workers. Employment services added 10,700 jobs, a 13.0 percent increase over ’16, which reflects companies’ reluctance to hire full-time, permanent employees.

Concerns over the fate of the Affordable Care Act along with pressure from consumers
and insurers to control costs slowed growth in health care employment. The sector added 6,400 jobs in ’17, slightly below the long-term average of 8,000 jobs per year.
Leisure and hospitality also underperformed, adding only 2,800 jobs for the year. Since
the end of the Great Recession, job growth has averaged 11,800 per year.

The government sector added 8,000 jobs, three-fourths of them in school districts,
community colleges, and public universities.

Houston’s unemployment rate was 4.3 percent in December, unchanged from November and down from 5.3 percent in December ’16. Texas’ unemployment rate was 3.7 percent in December, unchanged from November and down from 4.5 percent in December ’16.

The U.S. rate was 3.9 percent in December, unchanged from November and down from4.5 percent in December ’16. The rates are not seasonally adjusted.

A note of caution to readers: In March, the Texas Workforce Commission will issue its
benchmark revisions of employment data for all of ’17 and part of ’16. The final
employment counts may be significantly different from the current report. Those
revisions will be covered in detail in a future issue of Houston: The Economy at a Glance

Book: The 12 Week Year

I am determined to read more books this year. I am proud to say I have already completed one and I am halfway through my second one! We just ordered “The 12 Week Year” in the Houston office and I can’t wait to read this one with my team!

Has anyone read this yet? What did you think?

Houston Economic Update – January 2018

http://www.houston.org/pdf/research/quickview/Economy_at_a_Glance.pdf

JOB GROWTH TO PICK UP IN ’18
The Partnership’s employment forecast for this year calls
for the region to create approximately 45,500 jobs. Growth
will be driven primarily by the strength of the U.S. and
global economies and Houston’s links to them. While
turmoil in the energy industry has for the most part subsided,
the forecast doesn’t anticipate the sector contributing
to job growth in ’18, but neither does it detract
from overall expansion. Only two sectors, construction and
information, are forecast to finish the year with fewer jobs
than they started with. All remaining sectors are expected
to expand, some robustly, others modestly, in ’18.
