North Coast Hot Jobs Oct. 27

Hello fellow job seekers. Why yes, I am still unemployed. Sometimes I think I am better at finding jobs for everyone else than I am for finding a job for myself. Anyways, here is the link to this week's North Coast Hot Jobs listing, https://www.scribd.com/doc/244522612/North-Coast-Hot-Jobs-Oct-27-2014

Some organizations are beginning their holiday season hiring. WalMart is for one. So, apply there now.

Westport Shipyard has added five jobs this week. They now have seventeen job openings.

Go Wireless opened four more jobs this week for a total of five job openings.

The Quileute Tribe has six more job openings this week out at Lapush.

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

North Coast Hot Jobs Oct. 20

Hello fellow job seekers. Here is the latest North Coast Hot Jobs listing, https://www.scribd.com/doc/243577631/North-Coast-Hot-Jobs-Oct-20-2014

First of all, let me point out that this site's audience has grown bigger than I had anticipated. Therefore, I will continue to publish it. For the time being anyways.

Let's start off by pointing out some organizations that have some job activity. Westport Shipyard in Port Angeles currently has twelve jobs open. Those of you who worked there might consider reapplying. However, I know that some have moved on to other things.

Home Depot in Sequim still has those eight jobs posted that opened a few weeks ago. Apparently, they have an interest in hiring vets, if that is your background.

Office Depot in Sequim has posted four new jobs this week. A logistics associate, a retail management sales lead, a retail sales associate and a sales consultant print services.

There are ten para-educator job openings in the area. Three in Port Angeles, four in Port Townsend, one in Brinnon and two in Sequim. Check their respective school districts for more info.

Review the Job Hunting Tips and Featured Jobs pages in the right column for other useful information.

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

North Coast Hot Jobs Oct. 13

Hello fellow job seekers. Here is the latest North Coast Hot Jobs listing, https://www.scribd.com/doc/242761288/North-Coast-Hot-Jobs-Oct-13-2014

As some of you may know, I maintain this site on my own time. An unpaid public service. It takes me between four and six hours each week. I know it has been beneficial to many others, but lately I have been wondering if it is worth my time.

I constructed this listing two years ago, before I was with WorkSource. Since my term of service expired there, I have been trying to get back into the employment field. I was with a non-profit agency for a few months in this same field. I have been unemployed for the last two months. Laid off. My recent attempts to get employed with WorkFirst, Workforce or other work related jobs at WorkSource, DSHS, the local college or employment agencies have been unfruitful. It has become very difficult for me to continue looking for jobs for others when I can't even find a job for myself. As a result, this will possibly be the last North Coast Hot Jobs listing I post. At least until I get employed.

One thing that is ironic is that I know that people in the employment field use this site to increase their knowledge. I have been an unemployed person helping employment specialists find work for others.

Contact Mike McEvoy at WorkSource Clallam if you think I should continue this jobs listing. He is at 360-457-2103. Have a good one.

North Coast Hot Jobs Oct. 6

Hello fellow job seekers. Here is the link to the latest North Coast Hot Jobs listing, https://www.scribd.com/doc/241904087/North-Coast-Hot-Jobs-Oct-6-2014

Well, here we are in October. Temperatures are beginning to get lower. One topic this year has been if we will have an El Nino weather event this year. The weather forecasters are not in agreement as to the severity of this event or even if it will happen at all. You can google "El Nino" to read different articles on it. Here are a couple of links with different views on El Nino this year. Here, http://www.liveweatherblogs.com/index.php/community/groups/viewdiscussion/215-el-el-nino-watch-update-2014-2015-it-could-be-big-real-big?groupid=6 and here, http://www.nytimes.com/2014/09/10/science/earth/el-nino-california-drought.html?_r=0

What the El Nino means in this area is usually a mild winter. Most of our bad weather would hit Northern California, where they desperately need it.

Now, let's change the subject. The Clallam County Economic Development Council recently made a few comments in the Peninsula Daily News. They basically stated what they have been doing and what kind of economic development is possible in the area. Here is the link to this article, http://www.peninsuladailynews.com/article/20141003/NEWS/310039967/0/SEARCH

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