St. Petersburg, FL (PRWEB) May 01, 2013
Unemployment rates continued to fall in March, a reassuring sign that the economy is recovering. Twenty-six states saw a decrease in unemployment, including Florida, which has dropped 3% since February.
In the last year, Florida’s unemployment rate has decreased 1.4%, from 8.9% to 7.5%. Pinellas County has seen a 0.5% drop in unemployment since January and is currently 7.3%. Both of these rates are below the national average of 7.7%.
This data comes on the heels of Governor Rick Scott announcing that Florida had created 32,400 private-sector jobs in March, contributing to the state’s positive job growth month-to-month for twenty of the last twenty-one months. One of the largest contributing fields to this growth is online STEM-related jobs, which encompasses anything in science, technology, engineering and math fields. This area saw an increase of 8.4%.
STEM-related fields often require special training. For those who want to take advantage of the jobs increase in this area but who are unqualified or underqualified, receiving training is crucial. College may not be necessary, but courses or certification in certain fields is essential.
