Great News for all those looking for jobs. The Labor Department just released their latest jobless claims benefits stats and it is at a four low. Jobless claims decreased by 5,000 to 348,000 ending the week of March 17th. This means that companies are hiring and giving jobs. Now is a great time to really start putting yourself out there and looking for the position you want.
According to a recent survey by Bloomberg the number of people on unemployment benefit rolls and those getting extended payments also fell. Reports are showing that companies are becoming more willing to expand their workforce while sales are improving. Employment growth helps spur consumer spending, which accounts for about 70 percent of the U.S. economy.
