The U.S. job market is strong but dynamic, and to keep up, workers are going to have to evolve.
Automation and data analysis will expand further into the U.S. job market in 2017, causing some significant changes in hiring, workflow and professional training.
"America's labor market today is one of the healthiest in a generation, with rising pay, record numbers of unfilled jobs and historically low unemployment," says Dr. Andrew Chamberlain, the chief economist of job marketplace Glassdoor, in a report he wrote on the labor market in 2017 titled, "Looking Ahead: 5 Jobs Trends to Watch in 2017."
"On the other hand, it's also a time of great uncertainty," he says. "Technology and automation are changing the way we work forever, creating opportunities and growing pains."
