When did you last hear of a job with a copywriters’ license?
A new study from the American Association of University Women (AAUW) suggests that the number of copywriters in the U.S. is down for the fourth consecutive year.
According to the AAUW, the number fell to 447,000 in the fourth quarter of 2017 from 475,000 the previous year.
The decline was due to fewer job openings, the recession and the increase in unemployment.
The U.K. and France had the most job openings for copywriters, with 646,000 and 569,000 positions, respectively.
In Canada, the unemployment rate fell from 5.7 percent to 4.6 percent.
The number of job openings fell from 621,000 to 519,000.
In the U of A, there were 2,500 more job openings.
That was a slight decrease compared to the same quarter a year earlier.
The AAU is currently examining a possible national employment study to determine how much the copywriting profession has improved.
A job with the copywriters license has been on the decline in recent years.
A year ago, the total number of licensed copywriters was just over 5,500, and the number had fallen to 2,100 in 2017.
The AAU believes that the recession has played a part in the decline.
The recession caused copywriters to lose their jobs.
The recession and stagnant wages also played a role, but the AA UW said the recession could also have had an impact on job seekers.
The industry has experienced a decline in new hires and an increase in layoffs.
In the past five years, the proportion of workers in the copywriter job market that is currently full or has a projected job growth has declined from a low of 7.4 percent to 6.5 percent, according to the study.
The decline in jobs for copy writers also affects the industry in other ways, according the AA.
The average age of copy writers is 29, compared to 40 for all other occupations.
As a result, the AA says, “copywriter programs are not adequately staffed.”
While the decline has coincided with the downturn in the economy, the study found that there is an increase over the last five years.
“These changes in employment, which can be attributed to changes in hiring practices, do not indicate that there has been a shortage of copywriter positions,” the study said.
In terms of the number and size of jobs available, the authors said that “the job market is not as robust as it was in previous years.”
However, they did note that “there is no evidence that the overall labor market has been adversely impacted by the recession.”
The study was published in the American Journal of Public Health.
