Staffing Agencies Say Job Outlook In The Upstate Is Looking Up

Posted: Updated:

Three major job announcements in the upstate in just one week, is this a sign of what's to come?

Staffing agencies tell 7 On Your Side the job market is looking up and it's just the beginning.

Sebastian Hernandez recently graduated with a business degree but hasn't had any success landing a job.

"There's plenty of over qualified people looking for jobs so it's tough," Hernandez said.

Godshall and Godshall staffing recruiter Catherine Culler is optimistic that the job search will only get easier.

"I think a lot of companies are now in a growth mode where they are wanting to add to their team," Culler said.

TaylorMade Golf Company announced Wednesday its opening a facility in Pickens County.

Two other unnamed companies plan to open in Anderson County bringing 400 new jobs.

Culler believes this is just the beginning. 

"Once certain industries come here and they grow and they get a taste of the upstate more industries follow its kind of a word of mouth," Culler said.

While many of the jobs headed to Anderson County are skilled technical positions Culler says there are plenty other options out there.

"We're having hiring in banking, legal, medical, accounting, finance, engineering, IT, really industries across the board are looking to add to their team," Culler said.

Culler says something as simple as your typing skills can set you apart.  

"If someone can hone in on their typing, their Microsoft Word, their Excel and their PowerPoint skills that's certainly something that will make them more marketable," Culler said.

Hernandez hopes the recruiters predictions are correct, and the right job will come along.

"They sound pretty excited that they got a job for you but you just never know until you actually get a call from the company," Hernandez said.  

A call he is anxiously waiting for.
