WHERE THE JOBS ARE

The market for jobs in advertising, media and marketing has achieved what we might call normality. It isn’t robustly expanding month after month, as was the case in the late 1990s. It isn’t drastically shrinking, as it did in the first few years of this decade. Instead, we now see some regions up and some regions down in any given month, with the overall trend slightly on the positive side. That means the industry’s job market is moving in sync (for better or worse) with the broader U.S. labor market.
