Karina Horst, an account manager at our Salt Lake City, Utah staffing office had this to say about the latest job report:

“The best part of my job and what makes me excited to come to work every day is to know that I am helping to improve unemployment and growth in the State of Utah. Also, knowing what areas of employment are growing faster can help us to meet our mission statement that says, ‘Deliver the right people, on time, the first time.’

With that information we can focus on the areas that will expand the most so we can help people to have a long term and stable job.”

SandraMarie Clark, the assistant branch manager at our Ogden, Utah staffing office had this to say about the latest job report:

“I see this as a jobs tidal wave. Yes, we have less qualified applicants looking for work to place at the right position. Yet I feel with the job growth this is a positive effect so we can place the right applicant with a position they are qualified for as there are MANY different industries to choose from. The jump in job growth in Utah is a great thing for us here at YES to build relationships with a variety of clients and industries to offer those applicants still looking for work.”

Haylee Sorenson, an account manager at our Ogden, Utah staffing office had this to say about the latest job report:

“The current unemployment rate has it’s positives and negatives. The positive is that there are plenty of jobs available to current job seekers. The negative is that there’s not enough people to effectively fill these open job positions. I think that is where it affects the staffing work that we do.

We here at YES always want to deliver the right people, on time, the first time. It is taking a little longer to accomplish that goal of ours. We are still seeing people come through our door everyday but they may not be qualified for positions we have or simply may not be interested. We are having to get a little more creative with our outreach and we have to act fast when we find the right person for the job. We don’t want to just send a warm body, we want to send the right one.”

Thanks for the input Haylee!
