Job outlook for 3rd quarter is strongest in 13 years

Des Moines, Iowa – The upcoming three months will be a prime time to look for — and find — a new job in Iowa, according to the latest employment outlook survey from Manpower Group.

Kathy Joblinske, Manpower’s executive vice president for Iowa, says the national outlook for third quarter is very good and Iowa’s outlook is even better.


Iowa’s net employment outlook for the approaching quarter is 28-percent, ahead of the national outlook of 21-percent and well ahead of Iowa’s outlook last quarter of 16-percent.

Hiring prospects are very promising in most industries, Joblinske says, and a few are far above the rest.


Only the information technology category looks to be falling, slightly.


There are double-digit outlooks in all 50 states for the quarter ahead, and Joblinske says it’s the strongest outlook in 13 years.
