Hiring Continues to Improve….

By In Uncategorized On March 30, 2011

Unemployment Figures for March 2011 will be out shortly but in the meantime the job market continues a slow and steady rebound.  Over 200,000 positions were added in the private sector in March and if this trend continues we should see the overall unemployment number fall to 8.25% by the end of the year.

And fewer companies are laying off employees also another indicator that the economy is coming back.  No one is expecting a big jump although that would be exciting but not anticipated.  Economists predict small increases in job creation on a monthly basis and small decreases in layoffs – the combination of these two factors will help lower the unemployment numbers.

In light of all the news around the world – Japan, Middle East etc – there are still positive feelings and a belief that things are getting better.
