How Employment Numbers Affect The Utah Staffing Industry

Aime Lopez, an account manager in one North Salt Lake, Utah staffing office had this to say about the latest job report:

Manufacturing is growing and adding the most jobs. We hire for a lot of manufacturing companies so that means that there is more competition out there for the kinds of jobs we are offering. With that being said we need to make sure to be the first to reach out to people that are looking for work to give us a better chance of employing them with us.”

Thanks for the input, Aime!
