The big news in the employment world is that the unemployment rate has finally dropped, reaching 9.4 percent. A few years ago we would’ve considered that number an unbelievable travesty, and it still isn’t the rate we’d like to see. Compared to 10 percent a year ago, however, it’s a step in the right direction.
Part of the reason that number dropped is that many job seekers gave up looking for work. That’s not good, obviously. We can’t blame job seekers who are discouraged or are just exhausted from constantly looking. The adage “looking for a job is a full-time job” is true. In fact, it can often feel like you’re putting in overtime.
We want to keep you from giving up on your search. That’s why we’ve put together this list of companies hiring this week. So save yourself some time and look below to see who’s hiring right now.
