North Coast Hot Jobs July 19

Hello job seekers. Here is the link to this week's North Coast Hot Jobs listing, https://www.scribd.com/document/318748847/North-Coast-Hot-Jobs-July-18 

So, the Washington state unemployment rate is hovering around 5.8%. This is pretty good. However, most jobs are along the I-5 corridor, which is not so good. Here is a list of counties in the area and their unemployment rates;

Clallam 7.8%
Jefferson 7.1%
Grays Harbor 8.3%
King 4.4%
Pierce 6.1%
Snohomish 4.8%
Kitsap 5.7%

A news article in the local newspaper about the Navy Pier Project could cause delays if an environmental impact study is conducted like some people are suggesting. This could delay the hiring of approximately 267 locals.

If you know of any Alaskan Native or Native American that is disabled and is having a hard time looking for work, ask them to contact the Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe Vocational Rehabilitation Program Manager, Nora Norminton at 360-565-7257, ext 7483.

Have a good one.

Jim Allen, MBA, Vet
Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor


  1. Hello! I appreciate your efforts so much! However, this week's posting seems to be encrypted somehow, meaning it has numbers and symbols throughout it. Can this be fixed?
