BBB Advice on Finding Help for the Hunt According to the most recent data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics,
 

Summary: BBB Advice on Finding Help for the Hunt
According to the most recent data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics,
there were more than 3.8 million job openings in the U.S. in February
2008. Even though that sounds like a lot of jobs, there are more than
7.6 million Americans who are currently unemployed and looking for
work--approximately 800,000 more than were unemployed this time
last year. Industries in which jobs were lost have generally remained
consistent, mainly centered in areas hard hit by the housing
downturn: construction, manufacturing and retail trade. Jobs have
recently been added in health care and professional and technical
services.
Public Employment Service (Job Service) is a federally-funded and state-
operated program that is available in all 50 states. Not only does this service have nearly
1,700 offices across the country providing free assistance to job hunters, it also manages
America's Job Bank (AJB) which lists hundreds of thousands of job opportunities. For
information visit: http://www.jobbankinfo.org/
Temporary Services place employees at companies which are looking for temporary
help. Job seekers do not pay the temp service. Temporary placement is one way
unemployed workers can supplement their income while looking for a more permanent
job.
