Jobless Claims Down/September Sales Up
Good news on all fronts today for a change!
Jobless claims fell last week – lowest level in 3 months -and some companies are beginning to hire fulltime employees again. There is a strong need for qualified technology candidates and in advertising/media digital candidates.
And the sales numbers were released for September 2010 and were also better than expected. Most of this is due to “Back to School” and stores with a high percentage of teen shoppers performed the best.
Once consumers begin to feel confident and start spending money, we will know the economy has finally bounced back.
