Millions of Americans were thrown out of work during the COVID-19 pandemic but officials see signs of hope as the economy recovers and the increasing availability of coronavirus vaccines.
“With businesses we are finally seeing an opening of opportunity again,” said Retired Air Force Col. Cassie Barlow, now president of the Southwestern Ohio Council for Higher Education.
“I’ve seen it slowly happen over the last few months where businesses are finally getting comfortable that we are getting close to the end of this pandemic and can start hiring again. And they are doing it.”
Not all employers post on the state’s jobs website and some postings are duplicates, according to the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services.
