You can spend hours online searching for jobs and still be unsuccessful. The Minnesota Job Vacancy Survey (JVS) can give you much-needed information to help you be more strategic in your search. Twice a year, the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development surveys the state’s employers about their current job openings. While this survey won’t lead you directly to job openings, it will help you get a sense of how many jobs are out there, how long it usually takes an employer to fill jobs in your field, and what kind of wage offers you might expect.
