1040 job postings...a good sign for the Lower Columbia!
The Lower Columbia Region is thriving! The most recent economic statistic in a series of published metrics highlighting our thriving economy is the number of jobs posted in the Lower Columbia Region. From January through August 2014 there has been 1,040 different employment opportunities posted at the Community Skills Centre! Wanted ads ranging from Licensed Practical Nurses to Power Engineers, this metric really highlights the fact that our amazing region is a great place to live, work, and play.
Terry Van Horn, Economic Development Coordinator for the Lower Columbia Initiatives commented, “This will be the third metric of our series released; we encourage people to continue posting and sharing these metrics with their networks as it really makes a difference to the initiative and the communities. The Skills Centre is an extremely valuable resource and I think many people will find this particular stat encouraging.”
