Workforce Connection NH

For several years now, NH Business Review has covered the nagging problems facing Granite State employers as a result of the state’s ongoing workforce shortage. With a state unemployment rate among the lowest in the country, employers in every industry and region of New Hampshire are having a difficult time filling jobs.

But the other side of the story is that there are unprecedented opportunities for people looking for a job in New Hampshire — whether for the first time, to return to the workforce, to find a better job or to change careers.

It’s the job of Workforce Connections NH to bring together employers looking to fill jobs and the people who are looking for a job.
