OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill., Dec. 27, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- General Employment Enterprises, Inc. (NYSE Amex: JOB). The Company has seen a positive trend in its placement and contracting services during the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2010.  The reported consolidated net revenues of $4,081,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2010 increased 62% from the same period last year.  Contract service revenues of $3,229,000 for the quarter increased 75% and placement service revenues of $852,000 increased 28% from last year.  The Company reduced the selling, general and administrative expense as a percent of revenue to 39%, which is a reduction of 13% from the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2009.

The Company had a net loss of $122,000 or $.01 per share, in the fourth quarter of this year.  The loss is attributable to $73,000 in additional professional fees incurred with the acquisition of On-Site Services and an additional $35,000 spent in advertising and promotion.
