Fort Lauderdale's office job postings remain elevated compared to pre-pandemic levels
As of the end of the second quarter of 2023, there was a modest 21% decline in quarterly office job listings within the Fort Lauderdale market compared to the second quarter of 2022. Interestingly, this period coincided with a notable surge in job postings due to the Great Resignation period.
Despite the decrease, the overall count of office job postings remains notably elevated, surpassing pre-pandemic quarterly averages (Jan. 2018–March 2020) by 13%, providing evidence that there is a continuing demand for highly skilled labor across office-using industry sectors.
The consulting, research, accounting and recruiting industry accounts for 55% of the total office job postings in Fort Lauderdale. The industry represents one of the largest sectors that is leasing office space post pandemic, totaling at least 640,000 square feet and indicating a strong return-to-office effort.
