Bringing Jobs to the Community

From cabinetry to the cotton gin, from firearms to airplane engines, Connecticut has a long and proud history as a successful manufacturing state. Manufacturing is also our future, as evidenced by the ongoing demand for local workers who are trained—or who can be trained—to take part in the 21st Century industrial revolution surrounding aerospace, biotech, and other high-tech industries.

On May 17th I co-hosted an Advanced Manufacturing Career Fair at The Army & Navy Club in Manchester. Dozens of job-seekers, from high school students on the cusp of graduation to 60-year-olds reentering the job market, came to talk with three dozen regional manufacturing firms who are looking to grow and hire.

Together with Capital Workforce Partners and the Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology (CCAT), I think we helped make some good career connections that day!

April a Good Month for Connecticut's Economy

jobsConnecticut employers added 3,500 jobs in April, according to a new report from the Connecticut Department of Labor. The federal Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates there were 20,100 jobs added in Connecticut over the last year, which is a solid pace for job growth.

According to realtors, area home sales and prices rose in April. The Greater Hartford Association of Realtors said that, last month, closed sales of single family dwellings in the Hartford region rose 26 percent and median home prices grew nearly 3 percent, to $216,000, as compared to $210,000 a year ago.
