As the stock market crashes again and again, it is a scary realization that I will be searching for professional employment in the coming months. I continue to hear that jobs are scarce with the unemployment rate in Nevada at 13% where California is just over 12%. Those numbers can be upsetting and disheartening for graduating seniors hoping to break into the working world and make a difference. Good leadership skills are paramount to push through difficult times in this country and so I continue the search for a reliable source that can help me find opportunities in the scarcely changing job market. I keep asking myself how will I ever find a job where I can actually choose the job because I see myself fitting with the organization, and not just taking a job because it simply was the only one I could get? Finally I found some hope online.
A great new site that I have been frequenting over the last few weeks is http://www.indeed.com. After browsing craigslist.com daily for opportunities I began to search for something that is actually a reliable collection of open job positions searchable by location. Finally I found Indeed.com and it gave me hope when I saw what my search criteria produced. I thought it was really helpful and it gave me a little more hope as I look toward the future.
