Jobless Numbers Looking a Little Better

This is just a quick post acknowledging the latest release of unemployment data.

It looks like we may have  finally turned the corner on layoffs.  Nationally, 539,000 jobs were cut in April — still a high number, but the lowest we’ve seem since October; North Carolina’s April unemployment rate remained unchanged from the previous month, at 10.8%.

If you’re looking for work, be sure and check out some of our JobSkills offerings here at Greensboro Public Library.  I hear the JobTalk and Java meetings are really going great guns!
