Share Article

As the unemployment rates are climbing to new highs, month after month, state agencies that distribute unemployment benefits are doing some hiring of their own. They are trying to match the laid-off with an ever-shrinking work pool by increasing overtime, expanding hours and adding telephone lines and computer terminals. Many recruiter agencies and placement companies are trying to keep up with a suddenly soaring demand for jobs as various businesses cut costs to adjust with sagging sales.

I've seen tripling of the number of people coming into our site looking for jobs. Our researchers are charged up even more now and are trying to find more and more active jobs everyday.

As the unemployment rates are climbing to new highs, month after month, state agencies that distribute unemployment benefits are doing some hiring of their own. They are trying to match the laid-off with an ever-shrinking work pool by increasing overtime, expanding hours and adding telephone lines and computer terminals. Many recruiter agencies and placement companies are trying to keep up with a suddenly soaring demand for jobs as various businesses cut costs to adjust with sagging sales.

"The job demand has been deteriorating really fast," says A. Harrison Barnes, the Founder, and CEO of EmploymentCrossing; which is one of the leading job boards in the world. "I've seen tripling of the number of people coming into our site looking for jobs. Our researchers are charged up even more now and are trying to find more and more active jobs everyday."

EmploymentCrossing scours over 250,000 employer sites and more than 8,000 job boards for high-paying, active job listings, and posts them in the site's revolutionary job database. Recently, the site posted more than 200,000 jobs related to various industries and sectors in a single week! EmploymentCrossing seeks to add more and more jobs in the coming weeks too.

According to the government's household survey, there are now more jobs than there were a year ago for every group over 55 years of age -- and fewer jobs for every group under 55. Rolls Royce, the second largest manufacturer in Indiana, said that it would be screening experienced applicants for 100 machinist jobs starting at $17.53 an hour. The company was astounded to see thousands of job seekers lining up its premises, forcing the company to close the doors on its advertised job fair. Some companies are also calling jobs back to US, and trying to cut on their outsourcing services, especially the call centers, to provide employment as well as better service to the US people. The recent report by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistic' Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey -- JOLTS - also finds only 3.1 million job openings for more than 10 million jobless job seekers.
