North Coast Hot Jobs Jan. 25

Hello fellow job seekers. Here is the link to this week's North Coast Hot Jobs listing, https://www.scribd.com/doc/253695593/North-Coast-Hot-Jobs-Jan-26-2015

Today, I thought I would do some comparing of unemployment rates of select counties close to us in this state between 2011 and November 2014. Here are my sources, http://www.wsdot.wa.gov/planning/wtp/datalibrary/Economy/UnemploymentbyCounty.htm and https://fortress.wa.gov/esd/employmentdata/reports-publications/economic-reports/monthly-employment-report/map-of-county-unemployment-rates

County                 Then                  Now
Clallam                10.4%                8.9%
Jefferson                9.9%                8.1%
Kitsap                     7.9%                6.2%
Thurston                8.3%                6.5%
Pierce                     9.8%                7.3%
King                        8.1%                4.4%
Snohomish            9.3%                4.8%
Skagit                    10.1%               7.4%
Island                     9.1%                7.4%
Grays Harbor      13.2%              10.6%

So, going by these numbers, at least one county is doing worse than Clallam and Jefferson county. Still an employer's market in some areas. However, some counties are doing very, very well. They are looking for more workers. They are even offering more pay than usual.

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