Unemployment Claims Drop….New Low

By In Uncategorized On August 11, 2011

Good news at last this week;  it is hard to think positive thoughts when the TV pundits are declaring the end of the world due to the financial crisis.  I get it – things are bad and we are in uncertain times.  But the last time I looked, the stores are packed.  And the Sidewalks on Michigan Ave are filled with shoppers carrying bags.

Today we got some good news: “the number of people seeking unemployment benefits dropped to the lowest level in 4 months.”  This was an unexpected drop and helped the Stock Market come back after yesterday’s heavy losses.

We are continuing to see a demand for digital media professionals across the country and the most active markets are Seattle, Boston & New York.  Hopefully this will continue as we approach 4th Quarter 2011.
