March 2019 Unemployment and Jobs Press Release
April 19, 2019
"Unadvertised job openings appear to be a growing share of the opportunities in Vermont.  Though we don't have firm data, it appears as if companies are suffering from "posting fatigue".  Since this current economic expansion began back in 2009, employers have been actively recruiting and hiring.  Even now, ten years later, Vermont employers continue to seek qualified workers.  Networking and making professional connections are an important part of the job search process and our staff are available to assist.  For individuals considering relocating to Vermont or Vermonters looking for a new/different career opportunity, please contact one of the regional offices of the Vermont Department of Labor.  There are 12 locations across the state and staff there can assist job seekers in tapping into the advertised and unadvertised job market."
