Here are a few things to expect when applying for a job in today’s tight labor market.
If you’re looking for a job now, you’re in luck: It’s a job seeker’s market. In May 2018, the national unemployment rate was 3.8 percent – the lowest since 2000.

With fewer people looking for work, those who are actively seeking a new job may have more job offers to choose from.
