Job activity is slowly increasing here on the north coast. Slower than the rest of the nation. Nearby urban areas such as Seattle and Bremerton have more hiring going on.
Office Depot and Petco, both in Sequim, have many job openings. They both use online applications. It would be wise to have such documents as a resume, cover letter, list of references, transcripts, etc., available in electronic form. In other words, store these documents on a flash drive, your email or even an online storage service like Google Docs. As long as you can retrieve them when you need them to attach to an online application.
Many jobs are listed in the local newspapers this week. The internet links to those newspapers online are on the hot jobs listings. Here is this week's North Coast Hot Jobs list, http://www.scribd.com/doc/198486248/North-Coast-Hot-Jobs-Jan-10-2014
Have a good one.
