How do you know the economy's starting to improve? One good barometer is to look at job openings, particularly in hard-hit areas. For example, if Detroit suddenly has a glut of automotive positions, one could be forgiven for feeling a little optimistic. Similarly, finance positions cropping up within a stone's throw of Wall Street might be another sign that we're on the mend. Fortunately, the latter of those two eventualities actually seems to be occurring: ICAP, a leading interdealer broker in international finance based in Jersey City is hiring. Sure, it might only be for three positions right now, but who's to say where this kind of thing might end? Why, before we know it, the economy might drop less than a hundred thousand jobs in a single month. Indeed, we may even get back to the days where it adds jobs. Imagine the possibilities!
