New job opportunities will soon be available for Coastal Bend residents now that the holidays have arrived. Monika De La Garza with Workforce Solutions says that companies will begin to hire seasonal employees, but those positions can also become permanent.

Newly released data shows that unemployment rates have already begun to decrease around all 12 counties, and De La Garza says we can expect that number to continue to lower.

Workforce Solutions of the Coastal Bend has already helped many find jobs thanks to job fairs held over the past two months.
