As we enter February, the national jobless rates continue to decrease while employment steadily increases. While this growth could be considered slow by some, rapid growth in an economy is not desired, because this could lead to inflation. Slow, steady growth is the most desirable, but not the best for those of us that are unemployed or under-employed.
The many forest service temporary full-time opening job closing dates have been extended from Feb. 3 to Feb. 14.
Three post office jobs are open in the area. Remember, there are two tests normally for these types of jobs. One is online and can be reached anywhere there is internet access. The other has to be taken in a classroom setting. The closest test for us in this area is in the I-5 corridor, I believe. A big investment in time and gas money to take a test that you may not get a job for.
Safeway has two Second Assistant Manager openings in the area. One in Port Townsend and one in Port Angeles.
If a job that was posted in a newspaper is no longer listed, this does not necessarily mean the job is closed. It just means that it is no longer listed in the newspaper. The job may still be actually open, the employer just may not have run the ad long enough. Review last week's North Coast Hot Jobs listings under the "Newspaper Listed Jobs" heading.
