No slack here at Redfish Technology!

June recruiting covered a lot of high tech territory with hiring in Customer Loyalty Software Technology, Semantic Intelligence Software, ePayment Stealth Mode Startup, Social Music Connection Platform, and Mobile Applications sectors. The hottest roles hired for included: Project Manager, Senior Account Executive, Senior Database Administrator, Data Team Manager, and Senior DevOps Engineer.


Jobless rates went down in 20 states in the previous month and up in 16, payroll jobs were up in 36 states, and down in 14 according to the BLS. And (a former stomping grounds) Santa Cruz demonstrated the largest county 4th quarter 2013 over-the-year wage gain at 6.5%

First quarter GDP declined, it was in fact “the second biggest downward revision from the agency’s second GDP estimate since records began in 1976,” reported Bloomberg’s Jeanna Smialek. A recent statement by Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond President Jeffrey Lacker reported by the Wall Street Journal ventures that US labor market weakness is a structural issue in part caused by the mis-match between the skills of available workers and jobs available. Because of this, the standard measure of unemployment may be overstating the health of the economy, and much of the slack in the market could be due to Baby Boomers retiring and young people choosing college over finding a job.


The jobs report wasn’t slacking either! Jobs came in at an additional 288,000, stronger numbers than some suspected. This brings the average up to 272,000 per month over the last three months. Gains were made primarily in professional and business services (+67,000), retail trade (+40,000), food services and drinking places (+33,000), and health care (+21,000).
