Good news on the local job front: the unemployment rate has dropped yet again in the Commonwealth.
The news was reported today on the the Boston Globe's Boston.com website:
" 'It's clearly an encouraging report,' said Michael Goodman, an economic analyst and a professor of public policy at the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth. 'You are seeing some positive trends continue.'
"Massachusetts, buoyed by strong technology, health care, and
education sectors, has generally recovered faster from the last
recession than the nation as whole. The state has added nearly 38,000
jobs since the beginning of the year, an annual growth rate of more than
2 percent a year, compared to a national rate of about 1.5 percent."
is reason to take heart, recent grads and alums - the local job market
is healthier than it's been in a long while, giving you a better chance
to find the job you want and stay in the region.
