March 2016 Unemployment and Jobs Press Release
April 15, 2016
"The national and Vermont economies continue to add jobs, and this prolonged period of economic growth, combined with demographic factors, make this a good time for people to find employment and new career opportunities.  VDOL sponsors numerous training programs in Vermont which prepare participants for jobs through specific job training programs, industry recognized credentials, internships, pre-and-registered apprenticeships, certifications and academic careers.  These programs prepare individuals for job opportunities here in Vermont.  In addition, high school and college students need to be applying for summer internships and jobs, and recent graduates should visit a local VDOL Office to register and get help finding jobs.  Vermont employers are hiring at all levels of skills and experience."
Annie M. Noonan
Commissioner of the Vermont Department of Labor
