Unemployment rates in the surrounding counties saw a decline of a tenth of a percent in the month of July. Playing a small role in that, the reported 13 thousand job postings made last month.
New reports from www.OhioMeansJobs.com show truck drivers, retail salespersons and registered nurses were the top occupations found in area job ads. Locally, Lima's Spherion Staffing Services reported a similar need for jobs, but says many local jobs are part time.
Many of the jobs Shperion is looking to fill, require few skills, but with a little hard work, these jobs could turn into long term employment.
Spherion will hold a recruiting fair this week to help residents find employment in a variety of fields. For more information, visit their website at www.spherion.appone.com.
