Unemployment down to 8.9% - Added 192,000 Jobs in February
John Borkowski, March 4, 2011
The Labor Department announced today that the nation’s unemployment rate for February was 8.9%, down from 9.0% just a month earlier. This is also the lowest it has been in two years. 192,000 jobs were added in the month, mainly all of them coming in the private sector. In an interview with FOX Business last month, Founder and CEO of WebiMax, Kenneth C. Wisnefski, regarded as an industry expert in small business and job growth, stated that “I believe there are companies interested in hiring but are having a difficult time finding people with the specific skill level their looking for”. Wisnefski also stated that “small businesses should find more creative ways of hiring, such as taking candidates and training them to become the type of employees they need. That’s exactly what we’ve done and has been tremendously successful”.
WebiMax, a small business specializing in Search Engine Optimization (SEO) increased their workforce 5% last month, with plans on doubling their size in the next 12 months.
The recent job growth numbers is another positive sign of a rebounding economy, and comes as other significant news broke this month including an increase in consumer spending and strong corporate profits.
The Management Team has stated that WebiMax is seeking to “double our capacity of content developers, develops, online marketing associates, and project managers in 2011.” At WebiMax, “we have experienced tremendous growth over the past few months due to our successful Online Marketing strategies that we implement for our clients”, says Todd Bailey, Vice-President of Online Marketing.
As the United States economy continues to rebound, economists are expecting to see more job growth in the coming months. This is just another positive sign for the bigger picture.
