Hiring Qualified Staff Continues to Challenge Employers.

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 2, 1998--Although the U.S. unemployment rate edged up slightly in June, chiefly due to the General Motors strike and Asia's economic woes, "the U.S. employment market remains extremely tight and job growth continued with 205,000 new jobs created last month," said Tim Loncharich, president and CEO of Snelling Personnel Services.

Loncharich pointed out that most of the new jobs came in services, and he added that "the U.S. unemployment rate last month was well below the five percent rate (seasonally adjusted) of a year ago."

"The continuing job growth shows our economy remains robust, and employers will continue to be challenged in their efforts to hire qualified staff," Loncharich said.

"There are more jobs available than qualified individuals to fill them," said Loncharich.

Snelling Personnel Services, based in Dallas, specializes in providing temporary, temp-to-hire and career placement opportunities to companies in all industries. There are more than 300 Snelling locations across the country.
