Benchmark Search Newsletter  January 2020
Message from President & Founder Troy Ashby:
Happy 2020! I trust you all had a wonderful Christmas and spent some quality time with your loved ones. The end of the year is for reflecting and the beginning of the year is for action. If you are like most people, you’re likely ready to hit the ground running this month. Use that energy! Whether you are applying for jobs, pursuing additional education, focused on a promotion, or looking to fill open positions, give it 110%!
Unemployment Update:

The unemployment rate remained at 3.5% (lowest since 1969) in December while the unemployment for college degree professionals dropped from 2% to 1.9%. In 2019 we added more than 2.1 million jobs with average job growth at 176,000.
Accounting Update: 

Read this Journal of Accountancy article to learn more about potential FASB complexity reduction and liability improvement.

Troy's Tip:

You’ve probably all heard of the age old adage “New year, new you.” I want you to leave that saying in 2019.

Don’t try to change yourself to be the perfect job applicant this year. Instead, starting this month, focus on harnessing, utilizing and marketing your strengths. This is also a great time to check-in with people who you might use as references.
