Not much chance of getting any of these jobs sadly! As Geno said, lottery chance!

What they don't tell you is how many people are actually hired for most of these jobs without a degree. Very few. If you don't own the business you basically have a lottery chance of getting most of these jobs.

Hold fast Dan. I recall working for a hospital years ago in the Washington, DC area as a Medical Billing Manager/Cost Center Liaison. Let me tell you this. Because I showed initiative of coming in to work hours other than work hours and I assisted other departments that had work not being done by who they hired, I still got fired. Explain that Dan? I got an even better one for you. I got injured on the job some years ago and ended up totally disabled. How come I had to type a resignation letter saying I would never attempt to be an employee of the company ever again and I recieved less than two years salary and had to pay back more than $12,000.00. The accident was not my fault, but someone else's. Explain that Dan.

My thing is this. Are we so worried about unemployment numbers now and saying getting a college education, well, ummm, not so important? Consider if someone wanted to have a serious relationship and the woman wanted children. What if a couple is already married and their two combined incomes, still only allows them to have less than $200.00 monthly combined? These are real issues relating to families of today. Let's not forget those unexpected medical bills because now stress and hypertension has come into play under financial stressors. Let's also throw in, the car just stopped running while in trafic, now it needs to be towed and then a diagnostics at the car repair shop. Meanwhile, while the mechanic is playing doctor with your vehilce, a pipe burst in the basement of your home and floods your basement. Now all of a sudden your wife wants a divorce because the hardship has taken its toll on your marriage. Therefore, a college education is necessary. I also believe while working at that so called cushion job, that at least one parent should work a second job just in case.

What a bunch of crybabies. First we want no government, then we want the government to fix everything. The job market is not easy, but for people with the right attitude, there are jobs. Most folks think they are entitled to benefits and perks. Think again. These things are earned. The unions have a lot of responsibility for employers going to part-time workers because they could not meet the ever-increasing demands of more pay, more time off, more benefits, etc. Our capitalist society will eventually bring jobs and wages back into line, but not without it being difficult and painful. All of us can't own houses and every 'toy' imaginable from ski-do's to big screen TV's. These things have to be earned. Too many people mortgaged their houses and their kid's futures by trying to impress people they don't even know.

The problem with this is, that today it is difficult to hold onto a job long enough to earn any benifits. For most people things are not like they use to be back over the last several decades; very few options for starting at the bottom and working your way up in a company for a long term career. I know people from all walks of life, in a variety of industries, that can't seem to get past more than a couple years employment before being let go. It's very frustrating and something is obviously broken. The difficult question is, what is wrong and how do we fix it?

I know exactly what you mean. Government has placed business owners to do whatever they want to do. Every business imaginable is crying poor mouth. These businesses used the recession to cashout some long term pentions and to avoid insurance costs by letting firing people. The phrase of 2010 and 2011 is "Out sourced" businesses have hired staffing agencies for labor to avoid employee overhead costs. These employment agencies are bringing in people and paying pennies in salary to do work that would have paid the labors 3 times as much as the staffing agencies are paying. The labor has no choice but to take the jobs because all of the jobs have been divided among the staffing agencies, "Can you say slavery?" This is going to back fire because our economy thrives on consumers who spend money. If you take the money from the consumers, there will be no money to flow through the economy. You are forcing the spendors to tighten their belts even tighter. If they continue to squeeze the money up top the value of he dollar will lower. The rich will finally get poor and the poor will look at the rich as they jump out of the wallstreet windows.

The economy has something to do with this is a statement of the obvious. I am 56 yrs old returned to college, attained my A.A.S. in Business in Dec of '08 and have yet to even get an interview. I have plenty of clerk experience in the course of all my past jobs. but nothing directly as a clerk. I have no clue as to why I was not interviewed, what I lack, because it is like I flushed my resume right down the internet toilet. My frustration and school loans have led back to school. It is a certificate that I am working toward and not a traditional job I am seeking, hopefully when I graduate I will find work.

My husband is also 56 and was terminated from a company he had worked for 32 years. He was one of the few with length of employment therefore his salary was very good. He too has applied in all surrounding cities, and in six months has had one job interview. He is now back in school trying to get accepted to RN school. If we can "financially survive" for the next two years maybe he will get a job paying "half" of what he was making before. And to the other person that said it was the fault of Corporate America - I totally agree because the greed factor has taken over loyalty!

Good grief! I've been reading these comments. No wonder you can't find a job if you can't spell or write English.

Funny, the first position that I looked at was for a full-time, book distribution manager in West Palm Beach, Florida...a four year degree is required with 5 years experience a must.
