How Utah Employment Numbers Affect The Staffing Industry
Laura Lafeen, an account manager in one of our Salt Lake City, Utah staffing offices had this to say about the latest job report:
“With thousands of jobs opening in all industries, the opportunities right now are endless. But as a job seeker looking for work, the labor market can be VERY overwhelming to navigate!
YES is here as a stepping stone for many, helping individuals gain valuable workplace experience. For others, YES can play matchmaker in pairing the right candidates to the right employers.
If you are looking for work but don't know where to start, choose YES, and we will help find that next opportunity for you!”
Thanks for the input, Laura!
