COLDWATER, MI (WTVB) - Several years ago, Manpower discontinued its jobs outlook surveys for smaller communities such the Branch County area. However, the overall trend is promising. This summer should be a good time for Americans looking for work. The third quarter employment outlook from Manpower is the strongest in more than six years.
The human resource consulting firm says employer optimism is the strongest since early 2008. Employers with leisure and hospitality firms expect to do the most hiring. Job hunters could also find opportunities in education and health services, as well as professional and business services.
