Who’s Hiring Now? Places that help people save money—or find jobs

While headlines continue to report on the grim state of the job market, people are finding jobs every day. This ongoing series will bring you snapshots of who’s getting hired now with the backstories of how they snagged their jobs.

This week’s stories come from Coupons.com, an online coupon distributor in California, which is rapidly expanding, and Bottomless Closet, a nonprofit in New York that trains low-income woman in job interviewing skills, and which just added one new position. I liked these two stories because they show that job opportunities have a relationship to the news. The growth of Coupons.com feeds off of two big news trends — everyone is looking to save money and newspapers are cutting pages. Another big news story is that volunteerism is up (both because of President Obama’s call to action and the large number of unemployed people who are giving their time), so again, it makes sense to see new hiring at an organization staffed by volunteers, especially one whose mission is to help women find jobs.
