…..And to think Americans were worried about jobs that will pay the mortgage. Silly them.
Despite ongoing sluggishness in the U.S. economic recovery and fears of a double-dip recession, the economy continues to create jobs, albeit at a pace many wish would pick up.
Job openings in the U.S. rose 4.5 percent in August compared to July, the second consecutive month of increase, according to analysis of online job postings by SimplyHired.com, an Internet career site.
Sounds great, doesn’t it?
I know all the recent college graduates will be happy to know there are some great jobs out there for them now. The leaders among job openings? Taco Bell and the Military. That should excite them
I just know that our recent graduates from schools that teach people to revile the USA will be all excited about those military opporutunities, don’t you? But for those who miss out on the Taco Bell opportunties, you will be pleased to know that Retail jobs rose 13%. I know that a job selling shoes in a department store will go a long way to pay off those student loans! But save a little, because you will probably be laid off after the Holidays. I suppose that, with the right degree, at least they will be able to score Bloomingdale’s or something.
“As expected, job openings continue to remain positive and stable this month due to the start of the fall season,” SimplyHired CEO Gautam Godhwani said in a statement accompanying release of the findings. “We anticipate modest continued job growth through the end of the year from seasonal hiring.”
Boy it’s a good thing Holiday hiring occurs just before Presidential elections too. Then the job numbers will look really good and when the Holidays that half the country despises are over, everybody will be unemployed again just in time for a Second Term.
Apparently there is a slight hope for a few good people with specific education and experience:
More job openings were found in accounting, finance, agriculture and some scientific fields.
That BA in basketweaving won’t cut it there, though.
…But of course, true to our shell of a press, they aren’t specific about the “scientific fields”. Still, there are plenty of job openings among the top three. I mean, a Chemist working at Taco Bell doesn’t inspire a “How many things can you find wrong with this picture” moment does it?
Here’s where you all have your best shot at working. Woot! Let’s hear it for the American Dream and the giant flushing sound that goes with it. But don’t delay. Soon you will have 30,,000 Bank Of America employees who are layed off competing with you! I am so glad we gave BOA billions of dollars in bailout money and I know you are too!
The Air Force had 134,302 job openings in August, while the Army National Guard had nearly 20,000 listings, making them Nos. 1 and 3 on SimplyHired’s list. In second place was fast-food giant Taco Bell, with 24,000 jobs available. Office-products retailer Staples, with 19,551 openings, was No. 4, while Valley Health placed fifth.
Glad I am not on a job search. But here’s a training tape for the next batch of dime-a-dozen college graduates from dumbed-down schools who are lying around in their parents’ basement, waiting for some CEO to call them up and make them lord of the company. Don’t worry! Be happy! Barack is taking care of you and your new pony!:
