Employment Rate/Temp Jobs

Okay, City's graduation took place on May 18, 2012, and some of the grads may be looking for work. What's it like out there? Are there jobs in San Diego? A bit of good news -- according to a recent article, San Diego County's unemployment rate dropped to 8.7%, the lowest it's been in three years. San Diego employers added 2,600 jobs in April, and the state Economic Development Department indicated there have been 300,000 new jobs added in CA the last two years, so there may be hope for job seekers. Local Jobless Rate At 3-Year Low ran in the "U-T San Diego" on May 19, 2012. 

Also, "U-T" writer Jonathan Horn advises job seekers to consider temp work because the country has added 21,000 temp jobs in April and 744,000 temp workers since 2009. Lynn Reaser, chief economist at Point Loma Nazarene, conveys why this is such a growing field of employment: "Hiring an employee represents a significant investment, and many smaller firms in particular at this point are still reluctant to take on that investment." Read Temp Jobs Growing As Economy Rebounds to get insights on temp work in San Diego. The article appeared on the "U-T" website on May 18, 2012.
