Health care, energy favored for job creation
By Bea Quirk CHARLOTTE — The encouraging news is that economists predict North Carolina will see job growth in 2010 after two years of massive job losses. UNC Charlotte professor John Connaughton predicted a gain of 32,800 jobs in his most recent quarterly economic forecast. But that’s also the discouraging news. “That pace is not going to get us out of the recession,” Connaughton said. He’s not alone in feeling frustrated. “People are starting to find jobs, but not at the level we’d like,” said Dana McDonald, executive director of the Career Professional Center at Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC). The center helps laid-off workers get training and find new jobs.
