Help Still Wanted for Some Jobs

It seems like we're hearing about more and more people losing their jobs from layoffs, but there are still some employers looking for more workers.

Manpower supervisor Sandy Brown is constantly searching for people to fill jobs for different businesses.

Brown says job seekers with skills in accounting, medical billing and labor are the most likely to get a job because these are the skills that are currently in the highest demand.

She also says in order to get a job, it's not just about your education and skills.

"Attitude is a large part of it. You can teach anybody anything, but you can't always change their attitude, and that right there can be a losing situation," Brown said.

    I agree with "Me" went there done that and all I got was rudeness. Actually they should have put a "No Help Wanted" here sign in the window/door or I am sorry can't you see I am too busy to deal with you looking for a job..I have one.

    I understand poeple being upset whne they may be out of a job, but to critize people at any location that is trying to help others find a job that will be compatible for any individual is not entirely fair to these companies. It wouldn't be fair to place a person in a job that they would fail in. That would only create lower self-esteem for these people and thought the objective was to lift people up and make every attempt to make their lives better. Just giving them a job is not the answer. Thank You!

    ok, so someone I know that is a very hard worker and doesn't do drugs or drink can't even get a job with you. He has tried everywhere and with his skills I am sure there is something he could do for your company. He has been turned away, a young Veteran with 4 children. He has been all over and they all say the same thing that NOTHING is available. He is a mechanic/diesel. Has his CDL's can do construction, has done shipping and receiving. He is able and willing to work and has the greatest attitude a Brother-in-law could have has wonderful people skills and willing to work as much overtime you are willing to pay him for. But, still after 3 months and no money he has not been called for a job. Yes, not even from your company.
