"We are pleased to see the bounce back in the employment numbers. Overall, in the past 12-months, the private sector in Vermont has added an estimated 4,000 jobs. This growth in the Vermont economy has not been found in just one industry but across many business sectors. The industry diversity of the Vermont economy continues to be a source of stability as broad based growth is easier to sustain than following the ups and downs of any one particular industry. This diversity translates into employment opportunities for Vermonters of all skill sets, educational experiences and professional backgrounds. Visit a local Vermont Department of Labor Career Resource Center and speak to our staff to learn about our career services and job opportunities in your area."
