According to the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, Ohio's unemployment rate is down to 7.4% in April.
That means 7,000 people found jobs from March to April. Centers around the state are helping people market themselves. Especially before the summer months when studies typically show a slight rise in unemployment.
But the state is putting up some big job creation numbers.
"And if you look back at the last year and a half and even beyond, the economy in Ohio has been slowly improving for some time now. Ohio added about 30,000 jobs last year, a little less than 30,000. And has added a little more than 40,000 jobs in the first 4 months of 2012. So things are slowly getting better, but it's a slow recovery," says Deputy Director Benjamin Johnson.
