Tapping Into The Hidden Job Market

Now hiring: Rhode Island’s Unemployment Office

From The Providence Journal

The Department of Labor and Training will soon hire 40 people to help process claims for unemployment benefits, answer phones and handle other tasks at the state’s unemployment insurance call center, agency officials disclosed yesterday.
The agency began posting the jobs online last week and already has more than 200 applicants.

The jobs will be posted on the agency’s Web site — through Sunday.

  1. Now Hiring: If you’re up for the count

    Nearly 600,000 Americans lost their jobs last month, driving unemployment to 7.6%. That’s its highest level since 1992. Overall, some 3.6 million jobs have disappeared since 2008. While a lot of companies are issuing pink-slips, a few are hiring. Here’s one place that’s looking for a lot of workers, but act quickly.

    Think of this as an enormous help-wanted ad as the U.S. economy flushes thousands of jobs daily.

    Or think of this as a stimulus program, of a sort.


    – 1.4 million people for part-time work April-June 2009 and same in 2010.
    – Must be U.S. citizen, at least 18-years-old, have a valid Social Security# and pass a background check.
    – Must speak English, but other language skills valued.
    – Work 20-40 hours a week. Most of the jobs are outdoors (need automobile).
    – Pay depends where you are, what you do and what experience you have, but range is roughly $8-$26.
