Recently released employment data from the U.S. Department of Labor reveals great news for job-seekers: The U.S. jobs market continues to rise steadily with 156,000 new jobs created in September. loanDepot, America’s lender, is also creating new jobs across the nation, with hundreds of new opportunities, including more than 90 technology positions at our Lake Forest, Calif., campus alone.

Firms such as loanDepot are leading the way in hiring over 5,300 people with the U.S. marking six consecutive years of positive job growth—the longest streak on record since the 1930s, according to the latest jobs report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

While these numbers are promising, loanDepot’s growth continues to outpace the national average and the company has been recognized on the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest growing companies in the U.S. two years in a row.

The U.S. economy is now 87 months into one of the largest continuous economic expansions on record, just short of the 92-month expansion seen in the 1980s, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Wage growth is also a bright spot, with average hourly wages up 2.6 percent from the same month last year and up 2.4 percent from August 2016, according to a recently released analysis on Glassdoor.
