Sandy Swadish is the President of GreatStaff Solutions LLC.  She provides the following information to Murray Feldmand and the Fox 2 Job Shop.

1.         The New Year is off to a strong hiring surge. Many of our clients within the professional, manufacturing,  and service industries are working to fill positions that were needed in 2013 but were held off to wait for their 2014 budget. 

2.         The trend of short term temporary (except for holiday, vacation and medical/maternity coverages), has dropped off substantially compared to this time last year.  We are seeing long-term placements, temp-to-hire and direct hire opportunities.  However, our clients are more particular now than ever and are taking longer to make candidate selections as each position seems to be critical.  They want to make the right hiring decision, even on temp to hire positions.  We do expect to see more temporary (seasonal) positions in late February thru May, for businesses that have peak times during the Pre-Spring & Spring season.

3.         Even though Michigan's unemployment rate is still high (making us one of the top 5 states with the highest unemployment rates),  we are experiencing a shortfall in qualified workers.  Filling many of our client's positions are becoming more and more of a challenge.  At times it feels as if we have depleted our workforce in the Metro Detroit area and it raises the concern that the 8.4% rate may be our new normal?  

For those who want to work and have been unemployed due to the recession and lack of jobs over the past several years, the word needs to get out that there are many jobs, ranging from entry level, production/assembly to supervisor, office, customer service, management and higher end professional positions.
