For many seniors graduation is approaching and many of you seemed puzzled in your job search. I spoke to one senior the other day and he told me he hasn’t received any job offers. Things like this hurt many of us who work so hard in college and then get let down by the real world. Everyone wants to know where the jobs are but are afraid to make that move if necessary. And YES, I’m talking bout THE MOVE. In some cases your city will not be the place where the jobs are so you might need to relocate. Don’t be afraid to make the move because it could work out best in your favor. I can definitely tell you that right now cities like Detroit and Fresno are not the place to be while they have recorded a thirteen percent jobless rate. You don’t have to be a mathematician to figure out how bad of a jobless percentage that is. One option for some who don’t mind traveling overseas would be to step into the Indian and Chinese job market where many of graduates with proper credentials are starting off around 125,000 US dollars. This is more than many of us can say within the US. Or for those who choose to stay local you might want to seek cities such as New York, Chicago, and Washington D.C.
