Seattle’s job market – 14th best!

The Puget Sound Business Journal reported yesterday that Seattle has the nation’s 14th best job market, with with 5.10 unemployed people per advertised job out there. We jumped up from #18 last month.

Just a few minutes ago, they reported that our unemployment rate is less the nation’s average (9.2% in the Puget Sound area vs. 10% nation-wide) but that the state did lose 3,800 jobs last month. The good news is that officials say they’re seeing monthly job losses declining.”

Cross your fingers and toes – it looks like we’re on the upturn, folks!
