Clients in Health Care, Food Service, Financial Services Are Adding Jobs

WACO, Texas, March 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Profiles International, the world leader in employment evaluation and human resource management assessment tools, has identified clients in several job sectors that continue to hire despite the latest unemployment figures.

"Profiles International has a unique vantage point with clients that continue to seek talent," said Jim Sirbasku, co-founder and CEO of Profiles International. "In a challenging market with an expanding labor pool, it's critical that companies find, assess and hire the best performers who fit the corporate culture and job requirements."

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the unemployment rate rose from 7.6 percent to 8.1 percent in February. Job loss was distributed across most major industries.

      • Industry fact: Department of Labor identified health care as one of the strongest sectors, gaining 19,000 jobs in January 2009.
  • FOOD SERVICE
    • Profiles International's clients are hiring restaurant managers, district managers and food service employees.
      • Industry fact: The National Restaurant Association says the restaurant industry employs 9 percent of the U.S. workforce and will outpace the economy in 2009.

    • Profiles International is assisting community banks and credit unions, especially in Texas and the Southwest, who are attracting new customers and displaced employees alike.
      • Industry fact: The Texas Bankers Association reports that a healthy state economy and comparatively low foreclosure rates have enabled many Texas based financial institutions to experience some degree of prosperity and growth.
