May 2017 Unemployment and Jobs Press Release
June 16, 2017
"The May numbers highlight the seasonal pattern of some Vermont business activities.  This time of year is about construction and the end of the school year.  This combination presents a unique opportunity. Through the local American Job Centers (formerly referred to as Career Resource Centers), the Vermont Department of Labor is working to better inform young people about employment opportunities in the construction industry.  This includes apprenticeships as well as entry level positions.  Summer youth programming is nearly in full swing and provides numerous opportunities for seasonal employment as well.  Anyone interested in finding work in Vermont – young or old – should contact their local American Job Center to learn about current employment and training opportunities available."
Lindsay Kurrle
Commissioner of the Vermont Department of Labor
