Our country is in a helluva mess these days. We are $16 Trillion (that’s 16 followed by twelve zeros) in the hole with an unemployment rate officially listed at around 8%. With millions of Americans now so discouraged that they are no longer looking for work, the real jobless figure is in the neighborhood of 18% according to some economists.
These statistics indicate that it’s a very competitive market for job seekers. Too many seekers, not enough jobs.
