The Week’s Best Hiring News: Week of July 5, 2010

leave a comment »

After the disappointment over the June unemployment numbers last Friday, this week has been much more positive on the hiring front. Leading the way, of course, is the new jobless claims number which came in significantly below predicted levels at 454,000—the lowest it’s been in two months. Better still, notes The Washington Post‘s Economy Watch, is that “the number of continuing claims dropped by 224,000 to 4.4 million. That same piece points out that part of the reason for the unexpected dip in new claims is that automakers are not shutting down production in July to the same extent as usual.

But that’s not the only good news we’ve seen on the hiring front this week: there have been plenty of vacancies announced as well.
