Moving past unemployment

It’s no news that unemployment rates are high — but now that the economy is slowly recovering, jobs are slowly becoming available again. The problem is that many people are competing for jobs, so we’re not out of the woods yet. Check out this AARP piece that gives us an idea of what the job situation is right now, and where the new jobs are at, like:

  • Mining (oil and gas extraction, quarrying);
  • Durable goods manufacturing (computers and electronics, heavy appliances such as washing machines);
  • Information (publishing and motion picture industries, Internet service providers, television and radio broadcast);
  • Government.

Check out the whole piece to get a feel for where you may fit in the struggling work industry, what fields are available and as well as where the jobs aren’t thriving.
