North Coast Hot Jobs Dec. 29

Hello fellow job seekers. Here is the link to this week's North Coast Hot Jobs listing, https://www.scribd.com/doc/251183975/North-Coast-Hot-Jobs-Dec-29-2014

I am not going to post too much today. I am concentrating on my own job search.

According to the November 2014 unemployment rates in this state, Washington state overall has an unemployment rate of 6.0%. Clallam county has 8.9%, Jefferson county 8.1%, Kitsap county 6.2%, Island county 7.4%, King county 4.4%, Snohomish county 4.8% and Pierce county 7.3%. More info here, https://fortress.wa.gov/esd/employmentdata/reports-publications/economic-reports/monthly-employment-report/map-of-county-unemployment-rates

I have been reading that the latest reports on the economy indicate that it is the strongest since 2004. So, hopefully more hiring will be done at the start of the upcoming year.

That's all for now. I hope everyone has a prosperous new year. Have a good one.

North Coast Hot Jobs Dec. 22

I added to the instructions on the first page of the job's listing that I don't post physical therapist type jobs. This is because of the following reason: There is no schooling in the area for this type of job. Although this website has been accessed by those outside the area, it is primarily for those that live here already. Therefore, there is possibly no out of work physical therapists living on the north coast of the Olympic Peninsula. So, why post those jobs? Now, if there was education for that type of high demand job in the area.............

Sorry for not updating the Job Hunting Tips and Weekly Featured Jobs pages. Since I have been unemployed, my heart has just not been into it.

So, big football game tonight. I have to get some job applications out before I set down to watch it. Have a good one and I hope you were able to scrape enough together to have a Merry Christmas.

As you may have read in the Peninsula Daily News, Nippon Industries will be having layoffs. They intend to layoff between 21 and 28 workers. This will affect the city of Port Angeles employment picture. The city will have less taxable revenue to provide government jobs. So, Nippon's decision will have a ripple effect on other organizations. More info here, http://www.peninsuladailynews.com/article/20141210/NEWS/312109985/21-to-28-employee-layoffs-expected-at-port-angeles-nippon-mill

Keep an eye out for the soon to be released state budget by Governor Inslee. This would have an effect on state jobs in the area.

Here is a list of employers that have a lot of hiring to do;

1) Westport Yachts. 17 job openings.
2) Olympic Medical Center. 8 job openings.
3) Safeway (various local locations). 8 job openings.
4) Lower Elwha nation. 9 job openings.

That's all for this week. Have to watch a football game. Go Seahawks!

Have a good one.

North Coast Hot Jobs Dec. 8

Hello fellow job seekers. Here is the link to this week's North Coast Hot Jobs listing, https://www.scribd.com/doc/249436757/North-Coast-Hot-Jobs-Dec-8-2014

I was notified that there is an upcoming job fair in Bremerton. Many jobs over there. Anyways, here is the link for more info, http://www.wamilitary.com/wednesday-wisdom-upcoming-job-fairs-veterans-military/.

Job Fairs help bring a large potential employee base to the attention of employers. When I was with WorkSource Clallam, we used to have job fairs once a month. Now, there is no job fairs in this area. There was one WorkSource Specialist that produced these job fairs here and I used to assist with all of them. I had become experienced in the system that she had developed.

Ok, the Sunday football game against Philadelphia is coming up soon, so that is all I have for now.

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