As the new year approaches I wanted to take a look at the jobs market. I was reading the new jobs report from the Wall Street Journal that covers the employment situation for December.
The unemployment rate is the best in the last few months, but there are still millions of unemployed Americans who have lost their jobs. The jobless rate in December was 8.5%, which is still far from the 25% rate that the government initially set in 2009.
I was reminded of that article and the fact that there are still millions of unemployed Americans by the fact that I was searching for the most recent jobs report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. And I was also reminded of my own unemployment report from this morning that didn’t include any unemployment benefit.
I thought that unemployment was over a year from the time it was announced but now I think there is some way to go before it is truly over. That said, there are still millions of people who are in wait-list and unable to find jobs.
If you’re looking for a job, you have to be aware of that so you can apply for it. And this is true even if you are looking for a job as a freelancer. You can still be a freelancer without having a job. Because there are thousands of freelancers out there that are looking for a job, but many of them are simply searching for a way to survive. Some people are just like me and just need a way to feed their family.
Many people just don’t get what a job is. They don’t get what the job is because they have no idea what’s to lose or what they’re doing is going to be their last. So the fact is that a lot of the job search is a result of a person giving false information. The job search is designed to be more focused, more of an investigation than a job search. It’s not about the job, it’s about the person asking you to do it.
If you are looking for a job, it really isn’t that simple. A lot of jobs are really hard, and hard work is a good thing. However, the hard work does not come without pain. The job search is about finding a job that you can do that is a little bit “downhill” and that you can handle. It is not about the exact job you will have, it is about what you can do. I can do this job, but I need some help.
The reason I am saying this is that the first job I ever applied for was for the U.S. Postal Service. When I applied, I made the mistake of asking my boss for some advice. He told me to just ask anyone who would hire me, but I was still nervous because I was afraid of being rejected. I ended up getting the job, but I was nervous about getting rejected, so I kept asking.
The Postal Service has its own branch of the Bureau of Labor Statistics (which you need to know about since I said so in my introductory video) and I remember it having quite a few job postings for positions within the agency. I was also very impressed with the fact that a job ad called “Postal Service Clerk” was actually posted in one of the job ads. It was just one of the most unprofessional ads I have ever seen. I never even considered applying.
I applied to a few other jobs that were advertised via the Postal Service branch of BLS and I was rejected about half the time. I did learn that the Postal Service has a very strict hiring policy that applies to all of its employees including clerks, messengers, and even the Postmaster. So if you are looking for a job that requires a college degree and you don’t have any, you’re out of luck.
