If you're looking for a new job in Bowling Green there are plenty of employers waiting to hear from you.

That's the economic outlook from a new manpower survey released today.

40% of local companies surveyed say they plan to hire more employees between July and September.

Another 60% say they plan to keep their current staffing levels.

That represents a significant increase over this time last year and puts Bowling Green at the top of the list statewide for positive job growth potential.
