Job postings are up around the state of Maine. The CareerCenter and the Department of Labor said Androscoggin County is just one county of many in Maine seeing a significant increase in postings. This is good news, but it is not the whole picture.

The numbers do not necessarily reflect that the economy has returned to it’s pre-recession rate of growth. But it is some growth and some good news. It seems like so much of the news we hear and read can be a downer. It is important to know what is going on around us. I think it is also important to look at the bright spots when we find them.
