DETAILS: The following commentary is offered in advance of the April unemployment rate announcement due Friday from the U.S. Department of Labor: "The economy has displayed signs of resilience and continues to grow despite persistently high energy prices. Surging prices at the gas pump may slightly impact further gains in employment numbers, but we anticipate overall hiring trends will remain strong as we head into the busy summer months. "Job growth has been steady and the temporary staffing industry in particular has shown no signs of slowing. Conversions from temporary to permanent employment continue to climb, and direct placements are also increasing at a faster pace than originally anticipated. Engineering, information technology, and scientific professionals are all producing high numbers and remain highly sought after."
