This is the time of year when some students have graduated and are looking to start their careers, while others are looking for a summer job before returning to the teachers and books in the fall. Iowa Workforce Development spokesperson, Kerry Koonce, says high school and college students out of classes for the summer will start showing up in the workforce numbers.


Koonce says college students with diplomas in hand looking for jobs are part of the annual summer labor transition.


Koonce says students are one of a variety of factors that impact employment numbers heading into the summer, including a ramp up in construction projects as the weather starts getting warmer.
