People are getting hired. If you're not even getting an interview, then something is wrong. Sure you could sit back and keep blaming the economy. I bet some of the younger people even have mom and dad convinced that the only job out there is the one where they get to bartend at their favorite joint.
That's all fine and dandy, but in less than six months, another slew of recent grads is going to flood the job market. Young people, who are now unemployed, will be yesterday's news as employers shift their interest to the latest model to hit the market.
Others in the market place will be forced to take even lower salaries as they settle for anything that closely resembles a job.
It doesn't have to be that way if you are willing to take a closer look in the mirror. Is it the job market? Or is it really you? In the end, your credit card company really doesn't care who it is so perhaps it's time to give your job search the attention it deserves.
