A new job hunting market is emerging as the US economy begins to tighten and as companies search for new jobs.
In the US, the pace of job creation has slowed from the record highs reached in the final quarter of 2016.
The unemployment rate is now 9.2%, and many companies have said they are looking to add more than 30,000 jobs in the coming months.
The pace of hiring has also slowed, with employers reporting that they are not adding jobs in an unprecedented number.
The US Bureau of Labor Statistics said on Tuesday that the pace fell to 2.9 million in the second quarter of 2017, down from 2.6 million the previous quarter.
The number of jobs added fell to 1.4 million in August from 1.7 million in July.
This is the first time that the US has seen a monthly decline in job creation since August, and it comes amid a tightening of the labor market.
The Bureau of Economic Analysis said on Wednesday that the job market was stabilising.
“The unemployment rate remains near its previous high, and the unemployment rate declined for the third consecutive month in September,” the bureau said in a statement.
The trend is also expected to continue in coming months, as companies seek to boost hiring, especially after the Federal Reserve lowered interest rates in August.
“We are seeing more employers looking to hire for more than a specific position and this is a good sign for the job markets as we enter a post-crisis recovery,” said Joe Stork, chief economist at BLS.
Job openings rose 0.1% in August, with an average of 5,000 openings per month.
Companies are also hiring for other skills such as finance, marketing and legal, and are also finding it harder to fill positions for veterans and people who have lost their jobs due to the pandemic.
The pace has slowed slightly in the past few weeks as companies look to hire people who are already employed, but are also looking for new skills.
But the trend could slow even more in coming weeks as new jobs are added.
A new jobs report from the Bureau of Economics showed that in the first six months of 2017 US firms added 1.3 million new jobs, and 2.1 million more in the three months to August.
The economy added 2.4% more jobs in September, but it still has a ways to go.
There have been more than 20 million people laid off since the start of the pandemics, according to the Bureau, but the jobless rate has not risen above 6.8% for more that six months.
It is unclear if the pace will pick up again.
In the meantime, there are many other factors that are contributing to the sluggish job market.
Employers are looking for more workers for the same types of jobs.
For example, a study published in September by the Economic Policy Institute showed that the number of new jobs in non-mining industries in the US is growing faster than the overall economy.
Other factors include the economic downturn in China, and US trade restrictions with China.
Some economists also believe that the lack of job growth in the mining industry is also contributing to job losses.
If the job losses are not reversed, the US will lose some of the biggest mining companies in the world, which would be a huge blow to the economy.
