A recent series of articles by Tamara Keith of NPR (www.npr.org) follows one woman's search for a job in today's tough employment market. The most recent installment of the series follows Annica Trotter as she prepares for her first day at a new job as a receptionist at a security company where she checks people security credentials. She secured the interview for this position after searching unsuccessfully for employment for four long months. Though adjusting to working again certainly has its difficulties (waking up at 5:45am to get ready, for one) Trotter now has the means to help provide for her two children.
As new jobs continue to emerge and the unemployment rate continues to fall, more and more Americans will be able to finally secure "the interview" they have been hoping for. Job opportunities have been few and far between, but according to a report from last month, from CNNMoney, unemployment rates have dropped to the lowest percentage since March of 2009. This trend is expected to continue.
