Unemployment Soared in August

The headline of this WashingtonPost.com article reads, "Unemployment Rate Jumps to Five-Year High." For some strange reason, this makes me feel a little bit better. It's not just me.
I am tired of job hunting. I have been looking for about 4 weeks now, 2 of those weeks seriously. (It was unclear in the first 2 weeks if an offer was about to materialize.) I just want a job. I want out of this ridiculous unstable Utah market. We have way too many small start ups here. And I really have no desire to stay here either. I want a nice stable company with good benefits. Is that so much to ask?

  1. I have a good friend who just moved back from Utah to Southern California...for your exact same reasons.

    Good luck to you, too! She's really having a hard time being back in CA and finding a job.

  2. If you do stay here in Utah, there's a couple of places I liked working, with good benefits and I could kick myself for leaving. Try eBay and American Express. Both have benefits that are 2nd to none. And eBay is probably the funnest place you can work at as well.

    Good luck in your job search. I know of a couple more places if you're interested.
