Job Prospects Uncertain for the New Year

Yesterday's Jobs Report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics wasn't good news. While many predict that economy will grow modestly in early 2011, few have encouraging words for the employment picture. It's not all bad. Some areas of the country are expecting to add jobs. For example, the media reports a positive outlook for Oklahoma, Wisconsin and Mississippi. Good news if you happen to live there or are interested in moving. Otherwise...not so much. Certain industry sectors fare better than others. IT, according to a recent report from COMPTia, the organization which certifies IT technicians, predicts continuing growth. (You can read the CompTia report here. The comments specifically relate to Canada, but technology employment trends will be the same or even better in the US.) Other sectors will probably  continue to struggle. Construction waits on new housing starts, which in turn waits on consumer access to credit. But there are jobs available, 3 million by one count, and if you're determined to work, you can find something to help you weather this long, slow recovery. This is an ideal time, however, to work on yourself. Go back to school, enroll in vocational training, take an internship or even volunteer. Developing your skills and putting yourself in contact with those who may be able to help you in the future just makes good sense. If you've been out of work for a while, these kinds of activities also help to fill in the gaps in your resume and give you the chance to show off  your take-charge initiative. All good stuff to bring into your next job interview. Check out www.careersearchamerica.com for tools and strategies that will help you through your career search.
