If you’ve venture outside your home for any type of goods or services in recent months you must be aware of shortages. Not only impacting the delivery of inventory, but many jobs are now going unfilled. There are a few theories regarding this shortage of employees, some have blamed generous Unemployment Insurance payments claiming program benefits are dissuading people from returning to old jobs or applying for the jobs that are now begging people to work.

In addition to unfilled positions in businesses and not-for profits, there are companies new to the area such as Amazon, they’ve promised at least 1,000 positions at its new Fulfillment Center location.  Below see recent job postings along with the appropriate links.  Some Job Fairs want you to pre-register, each opportunity posting has its own set of rules.
