May 2016 Newsletter for Accounting & Finance Professionals in Houston


 

May 2016

Industry News and Updates:

Boom or Bust? Neither! The first question I seem to get when I speak to both hiring managers and candidates is: “How is the market doing?” My answer is: It’s not 2014 where every company in Houston seemed to be hiring, but it is also not the 80’s bust either (I personally have only heard stories about this time). Houston has come such a long way and has diversified from being just an oil town since then. We are so much more! Don’t get me wrong there are industries in Houston that are truly hurting, but there are also industries that are doing just fine. The price of oil does impact our economy directly and indirectly, but I am so excited to report that it seems to be ticking up every week. Today the price is around $45 a barrel. Most economist will tell you that we need to get to $60 dollars a barrel and a lot of them have predicted we will hit that number by the end of the year.

It is harder to find a job today and you have to use multiple resources. You cannot simply go online, upload your resume to CareerBuilder and wait for the phone to ring. First, you have to make sure that you have a good resume (there are some links listed below with resume writing tips) and then you have to use great recruiters, your network, LinkedIn, networking functions, ads, niche job boards and yes CareerBuilder. One source is not enough in the present job market. The great news is that our unemployment rate is still below 5%; which technically speaking, means that we are at full employment. As you know, I always like to see the bright side of things!

See you again in July 2016

April 2015 Newsletter for Accounting & Finance Professionals in Houston by Diane Delgado LeMaire @ CFS

April 2015

Industry News and Updates
First things first. Please make sure that you have added my new email address to your contacts. It is dlemaire@cfstaffing.com.

With Q1 behind us lets jump right into the update for Houston. I am sure everyone is curious about the oil & gas prices and what impact they are having  on the job market in Houston. I have been in the recruiting industry for almost 14 years and have already been through 2 full blown recessions. 2015 has been an interesting year so far.  I feel like our local economy has taken a hit from the drop of Oil & Gas, but it’s not as severe (knock on wood) as I thought it would be. Some might beg to differ but, let me explain!

Obviously, Houston has been impacted by the depressed prices. Most Exploration & Production companies are not hiring at all. Some are even laying off, but downstream and midstream companies are still hiring. They are actually benefiting from the drop in price. Not to mention the back log of construction projects that are still on the books. We are also seeing increased demand from consumer products based companies (retail, restaurant, healthcare). Houston has gained nearly 570,000 residents in the past 5 years!

Just imagine the resources they will need from housing, healthcare to groceries and cars!

So, is the job market as good as it was last year? The simple answer is no, but there are still a lot of opportunities out there in several other industries outside of “oil & gas”.

Until next time..

Local Statistics:

  • National / Houston Unemployment rate:8/4.3
  • Price of Oil:$56.71(last year $100)
  • Oil Rig Count:1109 (last year 1803)
  • Industries hiring:Manufacturing, Construction, Consumer Products related companies, Real Estate & Homebuilding, Healthcare
  • Positions in demand:Controller, Financial Analyst, Tax, Internal Auditor, Payroll,

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..

Local Statistics:

· National / Houston Unemployment rate: 6.3/5.4

· Price of Oil: $93(last year $106)

· Oil Rig Count: 1930 (last year 1763)

· Industries hiring: Manufacturing, Construction, E&P, Consumer Products related companies, Law Firms

· Positions in demand: Tax, Staff and Senior Accountants, Controllers, Billing & AR Managers
