Virginia Economy Looking Up

RICHMOND – Governor McAuliffe announced today that Virginia’s employment level reached 3,848,000 in November, the highest in the Commonwealth’s history. Virginia’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was unchanged in November at 4.2 percent, after declining the previous four months. Moreover, initial unemployment claims are at their lowest level in 41 years.

“These latest economic milestones are a clear sign that our efforts to build a new Virginia economy are paying off,” said Governor McAuliffe. “I am particularly pleased that our record employment is accompanied by an increase in the average weekly wage for Virginia workers. This is undeniably good news for Virginia, but we cannot afford to let up now. My administration is eager to continue our momentum both by bringing new jobs and investments here in the short term and by making smart investments and policy choices that will lay a foundation for economic growth for decades to come.”

Telemundo Multicultural Career Fair & Festival 9.12.15

Saturday, September 12, 2015 will be the 3rd Annual Telemundo Multicultural Career Fair & Festival from 11:00 – 3:00 PM at the Science Museum. Richmond TelemundoMCFF Logo

This is the perfect opportunity for employers and job seekers to find others who understand the tremendous value of diversity. Diversity in gender, race, and culture brings different perspectives that break up “groupthink” stagnation. This results in increased creativity, insight, and efficiency — not to mention the benefits that come from truly connecting with new customer markets.

This relaxed environment also features a festival celebrating the cultural diversity of our region with entertainment, games, food and fun — so bring your family along! The festival and career fair are free to the public and accessible by the GRTC bus  line.

Register online  right now.
