Employment June 2012 – Positive Signs for the Economy
By Sklar & Associates In General On July 6, 2012
The Unemployment figures for June 2012 were released today and the overall rate remained unchanged @ 8.2%. However the rate for college graduates is now 4.1% down from 4.4% in June 2011.
Professional services added 47,000 jobs in June 2012 and overall employment in this sector has risen by over 1.5 million since the recession began in September 2009. Again over 1.5 million people have found jobs in the U.S.
Our clients continue to hire across the country and many of our positions in digital remain open after 3 months due to a lack of qualified candidates.
We remain optimistic that the overall numbers will continue to drop although slowly. And we are continually seeking strong media professionals across the country for advertising/media positions.
