LOS ANGELES, Sept. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In a recent Adecco Way to Work survey, over half of unemployed Los Angeles residents believed they would find employment over the next 12 months. Adecco Staffing US, part of the world's largest recruitment and workforce solutions provider, is helping to add to that hope by seeking 300 talented employees in various positions in the Los Angeles area through organizations including Cirque du Soleil.
