Some specific categories of workers — including lawyers, budget analysts and public-relations managers — continue to show very low levels of unemployment, according to figures complied by the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The U.S. unemployment rate was 9.5 percent in June. In dozens of job categories, however, the figures are well below that, according to survey by professional staffing firm Robert Half International Inc.
For budget analysts, for example, the unemployment average stands at 1.1 percent. For lawyers, it’s 2.3 percent, the same as for financial compliance officers. For public-relations managers, it’s 0.1 percent. I am really scratching my head on the unemployment statistics for PR professionals. Maybe I live in the wrong city. Relatively speaking, it doesn’t make sense but I guess the numbers don’t lie.
Joblessness for accountants is 5.3 percent, and it’s 6.3 percent for computer and information systems managers and 5.2 percent for credit analysts, according to the Robert Half survey.
