Jobs and the economy

Friday, March 09, 2012

Well it appears the economy is getting better, because I'm getting interviews left and right. There are jobs out there for me but they all seem to be paying lower. We were discussing this at work today... The economy is getting better, companies are hiring again but the salaries are lower than they were and there are still so many unemployed people that the companies won't go up even if they like you. I will prob hang on to my existing job for a bit because at least I have it and you never know what you're going to get elsewhere, esp if the pay isn't any better.

  Glad you're getting interviews, maybe it's just practice for the "right" position that's headed your way!

  Everyone I know who is looking for a job is finding out the companies aren't offering much of a living wage. It is a real disappointment! Good thing you have a job!!
