Unemployment Claims….3 Month Low
The news has been rather bleak lately – government layoffs and many positions being eliminated including teachers and city/state workers. We aren’t really expecting any goods news until after next week due to the debt ceiling negotiations. And we are also reading that consumer sentiment is slowing down and growth stalled in June & July.
So rather surprised to read the news today that unemployment dropped to the lowest level since April2011. This was better than expected.
In advertising & media, we continue to see a demand for digital talent. All of our clients have openings at all levels in this area of the media department.
