Hello again fellow job seekers. Here is the link to this week's North Coast Hot Jobs listing, http://www.scribd.com/doc/241187525/North-Coast-Hot-Jobs-Sep-29-2014
Well, welcome to the Fall of 2014 everyone. What this means from an employment standpoint is that seasonal jobs will start to go away. As a result, unemployment could inch up if new employment opportunities don't become available.
So, this week let's discuss the August unemployment rates in Washington state. Here's the rundown for counties in our area.
1) Clallam County 7.0%
2) Jefferson County 6.5%
3) Island County 6.1%
4) Kitsap County 5.3%
5) Snohomish County 5.4%
6) King 4.9%
7) Pierce County 6.1%
Statewide unemployment is 5.6%, which is pretty good. For more info on this subject, go to https://fortress.wa.gov/esd/employmentdata/reports-publications/economic-reports/monthly-employment-report/map-of-county-unemployment-rates
