Student Jobs Scarce as Economy Worsens

Category : Job Search

One of the tough things about losing a job or struggling to find one is that it’s easy to think that you are alone in your struggles – but it’s just not true, especially now.  Everybody is having trouble, this article in The Independent Florida Alligator states that, “The national unemployment rate for workers 20 to 24 years old is 12.1 percent, which exceeds the overall rate of 7.2 percent — the highest in 24 years, according to the latest data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.”  Sounds depressing, but I am posting to encourage you. The trick is to keep applying and following-up with employers. Good luck!
