I have been looking for a job for 6 months now and can't find one here! I am well qualified in human resources and accounts payable and receivables but no one here seems to want to hire good trustworthy employees! I have been passed over for people who can't do the job but will work for minimum wage... Then three weeks later they are looking for someone to replace them!
yep

I know of many people that have been in a similar situation for over a year or two. Good luck.

That's funny, because many local large employers have been hiring in droves! Our local employment pool is lacking, so many have looked to outsourcing. Either you're not trying, or you just haven't submitted your resume to the right places. I'll assume the latter, since you have taken the effort to take your fight to Topix.
wow

No you don't. Our local unemployment rate has dropped quite considerably in the last year or two. Are you sure the people you know are driven, much less qualified? Exactly my point.

I have been to every employment agency here and every employer I can! And I didn't come to topix to fix this for me! I came to say that's its hard right now to find a job not asking for you to find me a job!
wow

Apparently not, or you haven't been persistent enough to follow up. All local major employers, except for Lion Oil (they might be, but I'm not sure) have been hiring within the past 6 months. The unemployment rate in Union County is below the national average for the first time in nearly two decades.

But I do hope you find something to your liking. A major problem in today's workforce is that people would rather wait for a job of their choosing than accept something that they feel is beneath them. A word of advice: it is much easier to find the job that you want when you have one. Good luck!

I have to tell you that I have been persistent and always follow up more than once or twice and it's the same run thing everytime I hate to tell you that what you THINK the workforce is like is wrong!!! I have been told that I am over qualified for more jobs than I can count! And as for a job that is beneath me... I hate to tell you but I will not work for a fast food restaurant or Walmart! Why? Because I am better than that I have a college degree and will not lower my standards! And no disrespect to people who do work there! I will not work for minimum wage again when I was making 15 and hour on my low end!

It's not "what I think." It's what I know. There are facts to back up my claims. I hate to burst your bubble, but I had higher than a 4-year degree and took a job at a place similar to Wal Mart for a job at one time before I found something more fitting. I have identified your problem: gaps in your work history. Stating that you are "over-qualified" is a nice way to put you down. Since I do have a history in hiring, a clear sign that an employer looks for is an unemployed college graduate with a recent gap in their employment history as being a "job jumper." Due to the Department of Labor regulations, it is illegal to disclose this as a reason for decline. It doesn't matter what type of economic environment you live in, this will be the case until certain laws are altered. As previously stated, good luck to you.

This is the first "gap" in my work history since I was 16 I have never been with out a job EVER so guess that blow your theory out of the water there doesn't it but whatever I know what I am doing or not doing you don't I am done talking about this! Didn't mean to start some big argument about my work ethic which you know nothing about

No, it doesn't. It actually proves my point. You must not do well during the interview, as you appear to be a little slow.
The word "recent" implies desperation, and you will look for something that you feel you deserve. It is great to have ambition; however, you must put the time in before you earn anything. A college degree does not guarantee you anything. You have to prove yourself and your capabilities. And what you are proving to employers is that you feel you are "too good" for certain jobs. Which translates that you are "too good" for certain tasks. Nobody wants this type of attitude in a work environment. It's counter-productive.
I sense a little animosity toward the end of your post, clarifying your denial of being faced with the truth. Now, you have an opportunity. Humble yourself and build your character through a thankless job. The egos pared with the ignorance of the general public will surprise you. I wish you well on making an intelligent decision for your job future.
P.S. College/universities are not educational institutions. They are service industries. They pull in revenues for compensation of administration and faculty. That is why service jobs (such as plumbers, electricians, carpenters, etc.) pay more. Their skills hold greater value. Food for thought.
