happy holiday news …. ‘job offers rising as economy warms up’

Wall Street Journal: As the economy gradually recovers, some big U.S. companies are cranking up their recruiting and advertising thousands of job openings, ranging from retail clerks and nurses to bank tellers and experts in cloud computing.

Many of the new jobs are in retailing, accounting, consulting, health care, telecommunications and defense-related industries, according to data collected for The Wall Street Journal by Indeed Inc., which runs one the largest employment websites.

      Hi Hachiko,

      Do not give up hope, things will work out. I think you said you are Jamaican, I am too but I live in Barbados. Keep the faith as Bob said “Don’t worry about a thing cause every little thing is gonna be alright”.

    Great news, and the good thing is that it’s being reported in one of Murdoch’s rags! Merry Christmas all! Things are looking up, and you’ll get a job, Hachikō because I’ve been praying for PBO and for all Americans who need help in any way. So far, I’m batting 1,000 in the prayer department. God has answered so many of my prayers, and I don’t intend to stop now.

      You’re a doll, majii. I wish all Americans were as patriotic and thoughtful of their fellow citizens as you are.

    Jobs have been rebounding since May of 2009, right after President Obama took office, and nobody has reported this. The Democrats should have gotten this information out a long time ago.
