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 2012 Newsletter for Accounting Professionals from Diane Delgado LeMaire @ CFS

Industry News and Updates

This has been an interesting start to the 4th quarter of the year. I can’t say that we are super busy on the direct hire side of our business, but we have been very steady. Although year to date, the CFS Houston Team has become one of the top CFS offices for growth!  The demand for contract workers is very high. We are seeing this locally in Houston and nationally (40 offices nationwide).  I wonder how much of an impact the coming election is having on the types of hires companies are making (temporary vs. permanent) and if we will see the flood gates open after we receive the election results. I guess we will have to wait and see.

I continue to be optimistic about our local economy. Most of the news we see every day about Houston is very positive. We were just recently name the number one city in the US for Manufacturing by Forbes. Just simply drive around town and there seem to be buildings going up every where (especially on the west side of town). Construction is always the last industry to come out of a recession, so I am sure this is just the beginning of what’s to come. According to the GHP Houston added almost 90, 000 jobs by the end of August 2012. We are experiencing one of the fastest growth rates in the nation. Again, very positive news. It is great to live in such a wonderful and prosperous city. Oh, and by the way GO TEXANS! They are having an amazing year and I am certain making a positive impact on our local economy :-). Until next time……

August 2012 Newsletter for Houston Accounting Professionals

August 2012

Industry News and Updates

Diane – can you believe that Summer is almost over? Right now it seems that most people are focused on last minute vacations, back to school shopping and getting prepared for unbelievable amounts of traffic on the freeways again. I must say, I do love the sunny and warm days of summer, but I am ready for the fall. One of the main reasons for that excitement is not only the change in weather, but the amount of hires that happen in September, October and November. These are typically the busiest months for permanent placements. Contract placements tend to be higher in the summer months, although there are record numbers of temporary hires happening this year.

So what is new to Houston? According to the Greater Houston Partnership’s Economy at a Glance, consumer confidence seems to be improving. Houston enjoyed the highest auto and home sales numbers since 2007 this past month.  The GHP ties this back to 3 factors which include: job and income growth, as well as the strong performance of the energy industry. They also mentioned that the average annual wage is up $9,100 from 2009. I can tell you first hand that making a move right now does not mean you have to go backwards in salary. That is not to say that people are not making lateral moves, but for the most part everyone is seeing an increase in salary. The market is still doing very well in Houston and good talent is getting harder to find. Accountants like yourself will benefit from that today and for years to come!

Please feel free to email me with any questions you may have and stay tuned for the next newsletter in October.

March 2010 Newsletter for Accounting Professionals in Houston, Texas

Industry News and Updates

So, I know everyone is very anxious to hear what is happening in Houston. Well, believe it or not it I have great news to report! Our Houston CFS office has been extremely busy this year. We had a great start in January and that has continued all the way into March. We have been placing accounting professionals in permanent and temporary jobs at a greater pace every week. A lot of companies cut pretty deep with layoffs in 2009 and are starting to see their volume of business pick up again. This is prompting them to first look to contractors and then eventually it will lead to more permanent positions. It may be time to dust off that old resume! Or just follow my blog at: www.dianedelgadolemaire.wordpress.com. I also accept all LinkedIn invitations: www.linkedin.com/in/dianedelgadolemaire
