The Jobless Now Have Hope During the Holidays

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Dec. 10, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Local staffing companies offer solutions to job seekers needing several options or needing the right fit for their skills. Brian Rose, franchise owner of Remedy Staffing offices in Jacksonville and Daytona Beach, Florida as well as in Vidalia, Georgia knows a lot about spikes and trends that affect employment. "I have been in the staffing industry for over 20 years. I've seen the First Coast in both good and bad places when it comes to job opportunities and growth,"says Rose.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor – Bureau of Labor Statistics, the national unemployment rate is 5%, Florida's unemployment rate is 5.1%, and Jacksonville's unemployment rate is 4.8%. Jacksonville's success in coming in slightly below the national and state averages is due largely to the success that staffing companies such as Remedy Staffing has in placing first-time job seekers and recent graduates as well as those who are new to the area or who are transitioning from one career to the other.

According to Rose, "Staffing companies have always been great resources for the holidays, not only for those who are looking to make additional income for the holidays, but also for those who want to start the New Year on a new career path." Remedy Staffing has hundreds of openings available for over 50 clients including Saft Batteries, Revlon, and Samsonite.
