North Coast Hot Jobs Jan. 31

January is just about over. Some are filing their taxes now and some will get returns. These returns will be generally spent in the local areas which will result in a temporary boost in business.

As we are about to enter February, Clallam County unemployment rates are at 10.4% and Jefferson County unemployment rates are at 9.9%. Nearby counties such as Island County (9.1%) and Kitsap County (7.9%) have better showings.

In the North Coast Hot Jobs listing this week, there are numerous Park Service jobs open. These are mostly full-time temporary seasonal positions.

Three state jobs opened in the Jefferson County area. Two of those are with DSHS and the other is a Seasonal Park Aide. Jefferson Health Care has three new full-time openings.

Office Depot in Sequim has seven openings. PetCo has six openings there.

Four Para educator jobs have opened in the Sequim and Port Angeles school districts.

The Port Townsend Leader newspaper continues to show more job openings this week.

It appears that most of the new job activity is in Jefferson County.

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
