I know it's a long three-day weekend but if you're job hunting here's a great list to help you out! Once again thanks to our friend Ed Dailey from Tri-Tech in Kennewick for passing this state-gathered information on to us.

If you've been following the news you've also seen stories about job fairs, the construction industry BOOMING, and lots of ag jobs picking asparagus and cherries. So in addition to this list below, look in those sectors as well.

Being unemployed can be a blow to the self esteem, but working ANY job gives you experience and dignity. And if you end up not liking the job that helped you land on your feet, start planning (and maybe saving) and make a leap when you're ready. The only way to lose is to do nothing.
