LIVE CHAT: Jobs Help Desk (10/20/11 on 11Alive Morning News)
More than one in 10 Georgians is jobless.
The Georgia Department of Labor released new figures Thursday morning showing a jump in the state’s unemployment to 10.3 percent, a full percentage point higher than the national average.
Roughly 487,000 people in Georgia are out of work. In September alone, 15,000 people lost their jobs.
Many jobless have been searching for work for months. Others have given up.
However, there are jobs out there. You just need to know where to look and how to get them.
