I teach a Sunday-school class at our church, and we are currently studying the book of Proverbs.

Editor's note: This article has been revised to reflect the following correction, which will appear in Wednesday's print edition. Liberty Regional Medical Center communications officer Rene Harwell confirmed Friday that Scott Kroell had retired as the hospital's CEO after 21 years and said Donna Cochrane, the hospital's chief nursing officer, had been named interim CEO. An article that appeared in Sunday's edition incorrectly characterized her response to the Coastal Courier, making it appear - inaccurately - that she had evaded the reporter's question.

Finding a new job is never an easy task. That task grew even more difficult over the last half decade, when a struggling economy forced many companies to lay off workers and institute hiring freezes. As a result, unemployment numbers rose, and many out-of-work men and women found themselves searching for ways to stand out among a crowded pool of applicants.

As the economy has struggled over the last several years, many employees have felt happy to have a job, no matter what it pays. However, for those who feel they have been doing an exemplary job at work, they shouldn't let the economy prevent them from asking for a raise they deserve.
A struggling economy has left many people wondering when the job market will rebound. With an unpredictable job market, some out-of-work professionals and current students are wondering if obtaining an advanced degree is their best chance to stand out in a crowded job market.
Though the job market has improved in recent years, many men and women are still out of work. Perhaps most troubling, many of those people are age 55 and older who are fearful of an uncertain future and a job market where they are seemingly overlooked. According to a 2012 study from the Government Accountability Office, the number of long-term unemployed people age 55 and older has more than doubled since the onset of the recession.

When men and women find themselves out of work or dissatisfied with their employment, changing careers represents greener pastures and a new beginning.
