Seeking work in a fast-paced society was never easy. There is very strict competition among all those who are out in the market targeting the same positions. It is also a fact that because of the world economy’s present situation, businesses have actually trimmed down on their personnel, thus, making opportunities far more difficult. This was not the case, however, a few decades back, wherein we have witnessed the growth of several major industries worldwide. The world recession has caused so many to be out of employment and it is really difficult to be depending on welfare as a means of livelihood.
Regardless of people’s educational attainment or background, there is still a big problem of vacancies. It’s quite simple to understand that there are no comfortable proportions of available employment as against workforce. This happens to be the most alarming reality at this moment. The effect to some have been underemployment and such, directly affecting some sectors of society. My husband has been a clear example of this and has transferred to several companies due to the fact of down scaling and priority setbacks. He can still be considered fortunate because of his vast experience with the industry which he has spent a good 20 years in. Further to this, my husband has held middle management positions and getting referrals and endorsements were not really a problem. I do feel for all those who are a bit less advantageous and are still out there in constant search. I do believe that landing a blue-collared occupation seems slightly easier than waiting in line for jobs in administration. As the situation may be, I still do believe that there are occasions when someone can get lucky and gets across one.
