Recent Grads Should Consider Contract Employment

gradsAs of May 2013 the unemployment rate was still relatively high at 7.6%, however, contract staffing experienced strong growth with the addition 26,000 jobs added through staffing firms.  In fact, the unemployment rate for Americans ages 25-34 is 8.3%, higher than the national average of 7.6% for the month of May according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.  Recent grads and young adults in their early 30s do not have the same experience and thus are having a harder time finding jobs.  Acro can help place these young, eager minds into contract positions that can lead to successful careers, yielding future industry leaders!
