We are excited to announce that our team has moved to a new location in Irvine, California.  We spent the previous fifteen years in a building about two miles away from our new location.  Our old office served us well and we made great memories there, but we couldn't be more excited about our new space.


It has been an exciting fifteen years for Irvine Technology Corporation and we look at this new location as the start of another chapter in our history.  Please look for an invitation coming soon celebrating our FIFTEEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY hosted in our new office.  Moreover, if you are ever in the area, please stop in and see us.  We would love to make time for you!


Our other contact information, such as telephone, email and fax, has remained the same.  Our new address is 17900 Von Karman Ave., Suite 100, Irvine, CA  92614.


Our newsletter this month is filled with many interesting articles related to our industry and the expanding job market in 2015.

US adds 11,400 temp jobs in March, but overall job growth slows

The US had 11,400 more temp jobs in March than February, an improvement over the month-over-month declines in January and February, according to seasonally adjusted numbers from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. The number of temp jobs in February was also revised up by 6,300. In addition, the temp penetration rate in March rose to 2.025 from February's rate of 2.019. The penetration rate reflects temporary help services jobs as a percent of total US nonfarm employment.


On the other hand, the US overall added only 126,000 nonfarm jobs month over month, much lower than the average of 258,000 since March 2014. In addition, the initially reported job number for February was revised down by 69,000.
