My cousin's job was "canceled" so him is unemployed now.
A software american company based in Bucharest.
I'm wondering if this guys found now that to re-relocate in USA is cheaper than maintain offices in Romania...
Other people in the industry are applying for many months and they don't get even an interview...
My girlfriend is working as secretary (somehow an assistant manager) because she don't get any other decent job (and she is a master graduate with a foreign language)...
This crisis is hard at least all over the Europe and USA.

Im doing an internship in Moscow at the moment. Many people seem to be looking for a job and even if the have one, its not well paid at all. Most of my colleges here at the office left Moscow city and moved out of Moscow (Im here at some little city 25 miles outside of Moscow city). They told me that they are getting almost the same salary, but spend much less for their apartment or for food. According to forbes.com Moscow was on position no. 1 for the worldwide most expensive cities to live in.

I can completely understand that, now I see how much they earn, but how expensive everything is.

Im glad not to live here for every, even though Moscow is a great place to visit

I work in the animation industry in India, which happens to be a relatively small industry here.
It's been hit hard by the recession, in addition to various mismanagement happening across companies.

It's not too bad here in South Dakota. I live in a much smaller town (population: 3,000) so we aren't really affected too badly.

Though the schools around here are having some problems. A few teachers have lost their jobs, due to the school changing their class schedule's, and got rid of some of their optional classes. They were in debt, so they had to change something. If their next opt out doesn't follow through, the school here will be gone.

But other than that, there are still plenty of jobs to go around. But if the school is gone, I could see it causing a lot more problems in this small town.

there are many jobs in china now,but there are many many people to apply for a same job too.and the bad is,many bosses are bad,they cheat people and staffs,delay to pay or cut down wage or project's money. some govementl officials look like bosses' dogs. the gap between the rich and the poor is getting bigger and bigger.

Its really bad here. I've been laid off since February. There's not a job to be found that any regular person qualifies for. What few jobs there are all require some high degree. I've searched a 100 mile radius, filled out dozens of applications online and in person for decent wages right down to crap paying fast food joints. I have yet to receive even the first phone call...no one is hiring, everyone is laying off. Embarassed

Can't draw unemployment because the state decided that because I worked on a farm it was "Seasonal" work Mad Even though my tax forms and the thousands of dollars I've paid out to this @#$^%@#$% state since 2004 say different. I could kill someone over that deal Evil or Very Mad

They get all happy when they announce a place bringing in 100 jobs over the next couple years...they fail to mention the 30,000 that just went out last month Rolling Eyes We had a place with 20 openings awhile back...in 3 weeks...between walk-ins, online applications, and one job fair...they had over 25,000 applicants...FOR 20 OPENINGS!!!!

And a really annoying trend that's been growing the past couple years...nobody direct hires anymore...every #$%@#$ business feels like they have to go through these temp agencies. These agencies are worthless, a pain to work with, and everyone is sick and tired of having to use them while looking for work....what the hell ever happened to walking into a business, filling out an application, and getting a phone call to let you know whether or not you get an interview.

Unemployment in my area is over 14%....but that's just people actually able to draw money....doesn't include all the people like me the state screwed over and refused to pay us benefits, on top of people who's unemployment has ran out. In reality unemployment for our area is around 25%...not the 14% they claim to make it look better. Everyone I know is out of work right now.

I'm about give up...already lost my house, about to loose my truck, and sold off just about everything I could do without, only reason I even keep the internet going is because so many jobs require you to apply online now Mad Government still bails out the big companies...doing nothing for the people that actually need help...yet we are the ones paying for it. Evil or Very Mad

Low end part time jobs without future are advertised now and then, and always there is someone younger, better looking, better fitting in local society, stronger and healthier to fill it. Does it fit your mind being "overqualified" for the job? And being no competitor for a qualified work for a people with this country job experience at advanced level.
There nothing one can do about this, as long as there are much more people than jobs, with this trend worsening as population grows.

There seem to be a lot of people looking for work, but there also seem to be a lot of advertisements on the net, newspapers, etc. for job openings. Yes, there are less of these days, but I think people are looking for a reason not to work.

I'm in Phoenix, and it can be pretty bad out here too. Especially if you don't have the experience. Yes, there are plenty of jobs being offered. The problem is whether or not they want to hire you or not. My mother-in-law hasn't had a job in nearly 10 months, and she's really tried.

The job situation is just as bad here in Canada... It's starting to lighten up a bit, as the economy bounces back, but alot of manufacturing jobs at automotive plants have been lost.

Unfortunately here in Canada, the computer field is really competitive... You need to either be in Toronto or Vancouver to get any good jobs, and even living in those places you need to be the best of the best to get those jobs.

Hopefully technology starts to expand more here in Canada or atleast in South Western Ontario.

In my experience the job situation has never really been good in Canada. It is OK for temp jobs and part-time contract work, but permanent jobs are really hard to find, unless you are well connected, or are brilliant in a specialist and niche field. Computer jobs are especially hard to find as one has to have at least four years proven experience to be seriously regarded, or prepared to start in an entry level position.

Ya, alot of organizations and companies here do not have the financial backing or need for hiring full-time IT systems specialists... Therefore alot of consulting and contract jobs occur. Experience is another thing businesses really look for, and because there is such a huge competition in the field, if you dont have experience its hard to get any...

I'm hoping to get a job working at a Datacenter or similiar facility, doing Racking/Systems Support. However where i'm located we dont really have a commercial DC facility, Toronto would be my closest prospect.

Hopefully prospects grow in the upcoming years :/...

@deanhills: Did you work in Canada for a period of time?
