In my own experience, looking for a job these days is like be dead and go to hell. Due to the financial crisis, I have no other choice but to apply first for a job where I cannot fully apply everything that I've learned from my course. I just hope and pray that in my application process, I won't become a member of the unemployed club.

Hi! yes, it's true but it's not bad to look for another job which is not in line with your course. Do not just focus yourself to be employed but engage too in business. Because earning lots of money is really in business. Actually, you're working now through this mylot because you're earning here from posting your discussions. Have a nice day, tri!

Hi? Ms. That's not a problem? You're in working this site, it's an earning points. Go more deeper in search a part time job which turn to be a full time job encoder and can be a researcher and analyze. But well, becarefull with scam which is really happening around the site. And... It's not the time maybe for you? Try and apply for any job as long as you fitted to your qualifications. Don't be afraid if it's not your background status. A lot of employer looking with a good performance which is opposite to the course you finished.

Yeah, finding a job nowadays is really tough. Not only is the economic crisis affecting many companies, we have to contend with other graduates and employees as well. Competition is really tough, but we just have to work extra hard to get the position we want.

Finding a job is never easy, esp. at this time of economic crisis. I notice recent graduates are reducing their anticipation. That might be a smart way to start with. Get on something low but at least you have the opportunity to accumulate experience. The local administration up here are creative to increase job posts, which help the applicants. Some are introduced to enterprises to do probational jobs, and the disables are recommended to do entering job for surveying companies. I am moved that a dumb boy graduating from a occupational school got employed and appreciated with good performance in the field of digital crafting. As long as we are well prepared, there will for sure a rosy future.

Ya, in this economy downturn, many companies around the world are much affected. Most of the company are trying to cut cost, reducing headcont, and reducing as much expenses as possible to cover the reduced in their products demand and also reduced earnings. So, it's pretty hard to find a job in this economy situation. It's good that you've found a job, so just stay there and continue to work and gain some experience first. Perhaps after the economy recovers, you may try to find another job which you'll prefer more and offer the better salary and benefits. Good luck to you! :)

Of course, It's really hard to hunt for a new job because of the finanical crisis. I had my present job less than 3 months ago, there are more than one hundred people applied for this job that time, they need only one and I success. Even though they don't paid well. What I can say is you should insist on, and then success. Best wishes for you, Tracydee.
