Tapping Into The Hidden Job Market

More Jobs Coming to Columbus, Norcross

From Georgia Public Broadcasting News

Two companies have announced in recent days that they would soon add several hundred jobs in Georgia.

YesVideo (, a company that converts home movies and videos to DVDs and other digital formats, will bring 300 jobs to Norcross next month.

The Santa Clara, Ca.-based firm says they have has 30,000 retail locations including Walgreens, Costco and CVS.

On Friday, Kodak announced that they were ramping up a third production line at their Columbus plant.

Kodak officials say the just-completed $15 million dollar investment will add another 50 jobs in coming years, bringing the total staffing to 300. The facility makes digital plates for the printing industry.

On the red side of the employment ledger, however, JP Morgan Chase says they plan to close a credit card customer service center in Kennesaw by mid-2010, eliminating 730 jobs.

The center primarily worked with the now defunct electronics retailer, Circuit City.

Chase didn’t say when the cuts would begin, but says employees will be eligible to apply for other jobs in the company.

Google Hiring in Atlanta

Google Goes On A (Mini) Hiring Binge in Atlanta
It looks like the GOOG is starting to add onto its Atlanta staff by opening up seven new positions in its Atlanta data center.  I hadn’t realized that the Google data center in Atlanta was down on 10th street but once you see how close that is to Georgia Tech, you can see why since it’s ideally suited to attract PhD candidates as they graduate from school.
