Ohio continues to struggle with getting back those jobs lost during the recession.
According to the latest federal jobs numbers, Ohio ranks 40th in the nation in recovering those lost jobs.
But over at Spherion they have seen signs of recovery.
The temporary employment agency is reporting that since the recession ended in June of 2009 they've seen demand for workers increase in certain areas.
Spherion Manager Sue Contini says the auto industry has rebounded and there's strong demand for truckers with a CDL license, anyone with technical degrees, skilled labor and welders.
She also notes that it's now an "employee driven" job market where if employers have a job to fill they'll have to pay more for the right candidate.
