According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the national employment rate stands at 3.9 percent, while approximately 312,000 jobs were created in December 2018.
But even though the unemployment is one of the lowest since they started keeping tabs on statistics, it seems as though more people are looking for new jobs. Maybe you aren’t happy where you are; maybe you want to change directions in you career; or you’re recently retired and you need something to keep you busy.
If it’s been a while since you’ve had to look for a job, you may want to attend one, or all, of the job searching workshops that will be held at the Hiawatha Library in the next few months.
The workshops will be led by Amanda Reeder.
