Anyone else having a hard time finding a career job?
I have been on numerous interviews in the past several months and haven't had an ounce of luck yet. The typical response is my qualifications don't fit what they're looking for. Is it me? Or is the current job market taking a toll on a lot of people?

Nope it blows, it's hit or miss.. I accepted an offer back in November, and they ended up closing the entire facility, and laying off the whole entire team.. I just accepted an offer for a position, requires travel though.. We'll see what happens.. No its not you, the job market blows..

It depends what type of business you're in. The IT market has been in a lull the past few years but lately things are looking up. Salaries are increasing and I see more and more job openings.

Exactly... It really depends on what you do. Accounting jobs are very easy to find... finding the right company is hard. Finding a job in IT is tough...
What line of work are you in...

Sorry, but it's my decision who gets hired and who gets fired where I work. It is however a very volitile market right now, and very hard to find an employer to expand their positions now. I say just keep trucking and good luck. By the way, what field are you looking in???

Thus why im going into the most secure field of work in the next 6 years..

I'm finishing up a degree in economics but hope to pursue a career in sales. My grades are okay, nothing to write home about but I do have over 5 years of sales experience working as a manager for a telecommunications company. So hopefully that will work to my advantage. Unfortunally right now many of the big name financial brokers and and such are only considering those with 3.7 GPA's and higher. Maybe my standards are too high

I've been applying for summer internships, maybe 20 of em so far, and still have not gotten anything back, most were out of state too. I only know of a few more places to apply so I'm starting to get a lil scared.
