North Coast Hot Jobs Feb. 23

Hello job seekers. Here is the link to this week's North Coast Hot Jobs listing, https://www.scribd.com/doc/256594083/North-Coast-Hot-Jobs-Feb-23-2015

So, Albertson's in Port Angeles is now Haggen's. Not sure how to pronounce that yet. The store looks a little more rustic. However, there is not too much change yet. The prices seem to be the same, so far. They also seem to be selling some stuff at a low price, because they want to sell other stuff in it's place. For example, some of the bread is being replaced with a Haggen labeled bread.

The Employment Security Department, which WorkSource is a part of, has some interesting job openings. They are called Career Pathway Navigators. They help connect educated career minded individuals with employers. Almost like a state sponsored head hunter. They also act as a liaison between local colleges and businesses to get them on the same page. This way they are not graduating too much of a certain skillset that has no future in the local area.

These Career Pathway Navigators will be stationed in certain areas, like King County or Pierce County. In some cases, a Career Pathway Navigator's responsibility will encompass multiple areas. For example, the Career Pathway Navigator slot for this area will cover the Clallam, Jefferson and Kitsap counties. I am not too sure about putting Kitsap county in the same category as Clallam and Jefferson county. Kitsap county appears to have more of a military influence and a major shipyard area, it has 2.5 times the population of Jefferson and Clallam county combined and their unemployment rate is much lower. Personally, I think they should have combined Jefferson and Clallam county with Grays Harbor county. The demographics and business makeups are very similar between these areas.

This could be an opportunity for a voice to be heard from the high unemployment areas of Clallam and Jefferson counties. This depends on where this person will be based out of.

That's all for this week. Have a good one.
