Bay Area job market is at a five-year high

Bay Area Jobs

As many of you already know, the Bay Area job market is at a five-year high, having recovered nearly all the jobs erased by the Great Recession and heading toward the sky-high employment levels of the dot-com boom, according to the Bay Area Council’s annual economic forecast.

“The Bay Area will continue to grow much more quickly than the state and the nation, and by the end of 2015, job totals in the Bay Area will be back to the levels of the dot-com period,” Jerry Nickelsburg, a senior economist with the UCLA Anderson Forecast, said in an interview after his presentation to the council last Tuesday.   At present, the nine-county Bay Area employment totals are about 282,000 jobs below the peak of just under 3.6 million reached in January 2001.
