Employment opportunities in the Washington metropolitan area are looking up.
Tim Namie is managing director for Manpower Incorporated. He says a recent survey of local businesses shows employers are re-investing in their companies. "I think the results show that they're a little bit more confident," says Kaine, "maybe forging ahead with some of the projects that they've put on hold through the course of this year," Naime says.
Business, government and retail services are expected to see the most growth. Namie says big changes are not expected for the construction industry."That's good for those who currently have jobs obviously, also good for those who are looking for jobs in construction, because when a company is maintaining they realize some natural attrition," says Namie.
The next Manpower Employment Outlook survey will be released in March, showing expectations for the second business quarter.
