December is probably the worst month when it comes to trying to find a job. Many companies usually hold off hiring anyone until after the new year starts. It’s also the worst time for layoffs, which tend to happen in most industries.
What makes matters worse is the continued stagnant economy. With less revenue being made, more companies are reluctant to hire during this time of year. With the high competition and a lack of available positions, many individuals have decided to go into other careers & professions.
One of the most needed workers in the next 10 years will be nurses and home care workers. With “Baby Boomers” retiring, the influx of elder care will be very much in demand. Many nursing schools are offering incentives for those deciding to give the health care industry a try.
