Job Numbers are Up in 2014

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS -

According to a National study business's across America have seen an increase in sales during the final months of 2013.

Back in 2011 and American Business Coalition vowed to fill around 100,000 jobs with veterans by 2020 and they reached that goal 7 years earlier than projected.

Lee Reynolds with the Great Falls Job Service says our vets do just fine in our work force.

"Those that come in I think are glad they did they realize that there is a lot to offer them insight into the job hiring process," says Reynolds.

The Great Falls Job Service has improved programs to ensure that our veterans make it back into the work force.

"For those that especially come into see us and we have got ample opportunity that we try to do some extra things to help with that is part of that after hours program that we do the 3rd Tuesday of each month from 5:30 to 7, try to open that up so that we can haves more 1 on 1 time with them," says Reynolds.

The National Association of Business Economics say 43% of companies in America have seen quite the sales boost last year a statistic the even the electric city is a part of.

"Locally I know that our unemployment rate is down our job numbers that were listing job orders is up so we know that there is a good pool of jobs out there. We know that we have a skilled work force that I believe is having to retool and re skill to move into those jobs." says Reynolds.

Reynolds says for those who are looking for jobs keeping your skills current is a big way to get hired, the longer out of the work force you are the less likely you are to get hired.
