US – Americans have increasingly positive perceptions of the job market and what it offers

Americans have increasingly positive perceptions of the job market and what it offers. In 2012, an average of 19% of people said it was a good time to find a quality job. For the first three quarters of 2016, an average of 42% said the same. Among those in the labor force (employed, unemployed or looking for work), the number was even higher at 47%.

Americans’ confidence that they can find a job as good as their current one if they happen to be laid off also has been restored. Currently, 63% believes it is “very likely” or “somewhat likely” that they would find a job as good as the one they have, up from 42% who said the same in 2010. The current figure is similar to what Gallup measured in early 2007 before the recession.

While there remains room for improvement in these metrics, they reflect important changes in employees’ views. Whether perception or reality, people increasingly see opportunity in the job market.
