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.
You're right the unemployment has dropped. But so have the number of people that are available to work. In other words the population is declining. Those numbers can be misleading. It was actually in the news recently.

I don't believe their driven as much as they used to be. And that's not because their less qualified, but probably more so because the outlook and actually reality can be depressing.

A word of advice: it is much easier to find the job that you want when you have one. Good luck!
Not true. I'm a manager and I will most likely not hire someone with an engineering degree for my department if they've been working at McDonalds.

It is great to have ambition; however, you must put the time in before you earn anything.
And what if you have done this and still can't find anything?

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.
And this goes for medical institutions as well? Looks like the food you're consuming must be starving your thought process.

The word "recent" implies desperation
Where are you getting that from. That seems more like a matter of your opinion.

I see nothing regarding desperation is implied in any of these resources:

No, the number of people available to work is actually about the same. More people are retiring, not dying; so the population has not had a decline in the last two years. People are actually moving here, since businesses are outsourcing due to the complacency of the local populace. It was in the news recently about the declining unemployment rate; however, the news did not and would not base it on "the Outlook and actual reality is depressing." That is a biased, opinionated statement, which would only be made on Fox News or MSNBC (not true news outlets).

That's where you misunderstand. I never stated McDonald's. But yes, you would hire someone that has been working at a "place similar to Wal Mart." That would be more enticing than hiring someone that has been unemployed for 6 months or more. Are you sure you are a real "manager?"

There has been plenty of opportunities in the local area. Staffing agencies also provide temp opportunities that can lead to full time. Again I ask, are you sure you're a real "manager?" (Which are not always responsible for hiring, anyway)

It already is with the impact of the new healthcare law. Medical doctorites are expensive; therefore, the cost of healthcare is expensive. Looks like your resorting to "humor," though poor quality, shows that you are running out of ammunition to support your argument. Again I ask, are you sure you are a real "manager?" Somebody actually hired someone of your "capabilities" to oversee others? You are a great example in supporting my argument!- college is a service industry

Check the definitions between "imply" and "definition." Webster is shaking is head in his grave.

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!
Have you tried Murphy USA? They have a high turnover rate and are always hiring.
