Companies hiring this week

The Bureau of Labor Statistics just released data on the December 2011 regional and state employment and unemployment rates. There’s good news to report: Regional and state unemployment rates were slightly lower in December, with 37 states and the District of Columbia recording unemployment rate decreases.

Year over year, the news was also bright, with 46 states registering unemployment rate decreases from a year prior.

With the national jobless rate continuing to trend down, it will be interesting to see how the topic is tackled during President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address. We’ll be doing a follow-up post on his speech, so be sure to check that out. In the meantime, here’s our list of 10 companies hiring this week.
