The Miami job market is seeing improvement. In fact, investors are happy to say that things are getting better in the Miami Dade region. On Friday, a nationwide announcement indicated that the country added 200,000 jobs in the month of December. That helped to push the national unemployment rate lower, to 8.5 percent. More so, the report indicated that most of the country's largest industries are seeing growth. But, what does this mean for Miami specifically?
Finding the Jobs in Miami
The increase in employment nationwide does signal an increase in the Miami hiring numbers, too. For those who are looking for a job in this area, the strongest growth in the area continues to be in three specific industries: professional services, healthcare and tourism. For example, in Broward county, about 4700 jobs are on the payrolls this year that were not last year. 60 percent of those positions came from tourism in the area.
