click to CalculatedRisk articleCalculatedRisk reports on some interesting new findings that (in the U.S.) people with jobs are actually earning more. They are also much less likely to get fired than they were before.
However, those without jobs are likely to be without for a very long time. No jobs are being created, and the usual pipelines are clogged with people all trying to use them to find jobs that just aren’t there.
This is good news if you are still employed, bad news if you aren’t.
If you happen to be one of the many people who are now out of work, I’m not sure what exactly the solution. But I do know what is not the solution: finding a new job the way everyone was doing it two years ago. This includes Monster and even TheLadders.com.
You’re going to have to tighten the belt and probably make a move.
More on that topic in the newsletter.
