Jobs are very important to the real estate market. The more information I have have about employment trends in Greater Hartford, the better I can advise clients as they look to buy and sell homes.
I decided to attend a local job fair to see firsthand which companies are hiring, and how that compared to the number of job seekers.
The quick summary is that Connecticut Convention Center’s top level ballroom was filled with both companies manning recruiting booths and people hoping to find their next opportunity. It was a very active event with a nice number of employers looking for workers. Most of the available positions were understandably lower level roles targeting people who already live in the region.
I’m always interested to hear the latest about the local economy, so please reach out if you would like to share any information!
