Positive NJ Employment News! Yes, you read that correctly.

Here at Emerson Personnel Group, we have decided to consciously cultivate a culture of positivity.  And apparently alliteration.   It takes at least as much energy to be pessimistic as optimistic, so we are choosing the positive path.

In the words of funny lady Lucille Ball, “One of the things I learned the hard way was that it doesn’t pay to get discouraged.  Keeping busy and making optimism a way of life can restore your faith in yourself.”   On that note of optimism,  the NJ Department of Labor and Workforce Development reports that unemployment in New Jersey declined in September!  Yes! It’s true!  Okay, so it wasn’t by much.  But it was still a decline and that is positive news.

Another interesting statistic indicates that over 53,000 temporary jobs were posted in the last three months. This number shows growth of 31% over last year.  Who is helping to fill these temporary jobs and how can you find them?  Staffing agencies, that’s who.  Creating an alliance with recruiters at reputable NJ temp agencies is in the best interest of job seekers.  You will have “an extra set of eyes” looking out for jobs that best fits your skill set and you may learn about open positions that are not publicly posted.

If you are not already part of the Emerson Personnel talent team, why not register now? A great opportunity may be just around the corner.
