North Coast Hot Jobs Feb. 28

Welcome everyone. Here it is almost March and Spring is near. However, we might have one last gasp from Winter this weekend, so be careful driving. Ok, so much for preliminaries. Here is the link to this week's North Coast Hot Jobs listing, http://www.scribd.com/doc/209812799/North-Coast-Hot-Jobs-Feb-28-2014

The State of Washington has five more job openings this week in this area. This makes a total of fourteen good paying jobs in Clallam and Jefferson Counties. Most of them are timber and fishing industry related, but there are some white collar openings also.

The area newspapers posted many new jobs this week. At least fourteen new jobs in the Peninsula Daily News and five more in the Port Townsend Leader.

The unemployment rates continue to decrease nationwide and locally. The following unemployment rates are courtesy of the Employment Security Department of Washington State and are the latest released statistics dated December 2013. In our corner of the country the unemployment rates are; Clallam County 8.6%, Jefferson County 8.4%, Kitsap County 6.1% and Island County 7.3%. Just for general purposes, the I-5 corridor continues to have the best unemployment rates such as King County (Seattle) 4.7% and Snohomish County (Everett area) 5.3%. So, this is a good indicator that the economy is slowly but surely growing.

Have a good one.

So, we will start off this week's post by showing the link to this week's North Coast Hot Jobs listing. Here it is, http://www.scribd.com/doc/208392313/North-Coast-Hot-Jobs-Feb-21-2014.

Just so everyone knows, this North Coast Hot Jobs is not a profitable venture. I have to use a free Blogger site and a free Scribd account. It is pretty much a free community service to the public in this area.

The United States Postal Service continues to look for employees in this area. As of today, there are three postal job openings with two scheduled to close today.

The state continues to have natural resource type job openings available. Fishing and timber industry.

Many new jobs listed this week in the area newspapers. The Peninsula Daily News, The Sequim Gazette and the Port Townsend Leader.

Have a good one.

Happy Valentine's Day. Don't forget those special ones in your life.

So this week I will post the link to the North Coast Hot Jobs list at the beginning of this post instead of the end. Maybe this will be more convenient for everyone or at least most everyone. Here it is, http://www.scribd.com/doc/207094369/North-Coast-Hot-Jobs-Feb-14-2014

The many temporary full time forest service jobs are closing today. These are good paying jobs even though they are only seasonal. Look under the Federal Government heading in the North coast Hot Jobs listing.

Four more state jobs opened this week. Most of them are related to the timber industry.

There seems to be many coaching vacancies at various school districts in the area.

The Red Lion Hotel in Port Angeles has posted it's seasonal job openings along with a few regular job openings.

The Quileute Tribe out at LaPush has posted four job openings.

The Port Angeles Daily News has the most new newspaper job openings listed compared to the Port Townsend Leader and the Sequim Gazette.

Have a good one and good luck with your job hunting.

North Coast Hot Jobs Feb. 7

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.

Have a good one and be careful driving with the freezing temperatures and the possible upcoming snowfall.
