More employment opportunities became available to job seekers in the U.S. architecture sector in 2012, and the increase in hiring may continue throughout the new year. Recent data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics showed that the national economy added 3,800 architecture jobs last year.
"It's a relief that instead of petering out totally or going on a negative curve, jobs and the employment situation in the sector [continued to increase]," said Harrison Barnes, CEO of architecture jobs website Architecture Crossing.
Job creation remains strong in the architecture industry. In fact, Architecture Crossing added more than 1,450 job postings over the past month, as more U.S. architecture firms are trying to expand their workforces.
The architecture industry could significantly impact the U.S. economy in 2013. While many employers continue to search for ways to improve their companies, architecture firms have experienced success in 2012 that bodes well for future operations. Leaders in this job sector could seek qualified professionals who can immediately impact their operations and help companies in this segment expand further.
