How long is it taking people in 2012 to find their next job?

That's right, Jason, and the educated are seeking the lower-paying jobs...which means the high-school graduate is more and more shut out. The group that is truly struggling in 2012 are young people, and that's because all the ads say "experienced"!
I have a community college diploma and it seems that isn't enough for some of the most low level jobs that I am already experienced in. Those of us over 50 who have several years to retirement are also having trouble finding work.
Not only are young people cut out for not having experience, older people are cut out for not having experience in the "latest and greatest" software, social media platform, etc. Employers do not want to spend any time or money training.
Excellent comment peeples..and that is astonishing to be in a part of the country that has 19% unemployment rate! When you add the underemployed to that, that means every one out of four people in the job market is without a job!
I think that there are definite signs that the economy is picking up..but we've said that before, and it hasn't lasted. Let's hope this time is different.
Yes, indeed and it will be global recovery, not regional, according to some...
An improved economy will help, because my 401K value should increase and that will help me.
