The days when men and women would work for the same company for decades are largely in the past. Though some professionals still remain loyal to a single firm for the duration of their careers, such instances are now the aberration as opposed to the norm.
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.
The process of finding a new job has changed dramatically over the last decade-plus. Whereas professionals once printed their resumes and mailed them to hiring managers in response to job postings, nowadays resumes and cover letters are largely uploaded via the Internet or emailed directly to a company's human resources department.
It has been a stressful couple of years for college students. An unstable economy has led many students to second-guess their investments in higher education, and fear regarding employment prospects after graduation are common among today's students.

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. Many people who have successfully changed careers admit the change did them good. But individuals considering a career change should consider a variety of factors before making such a significant decision.
Though many college students dream of the day they will walk across the stage and receive their bachelor's degree, the reality that awaits many after the last note of "Pomp and Circumstance" has been played may not be what is expected because job availability remains bleak.
The transition from college student or stay-at-home mom to full-time professional requires a number of changes. Those changes include updating your wardrobe to give it a more professional feel. Clothing that's acceptable for a jaunt to the store or a night out may not be appropriate for the office.
While the job market appears to be on the mend, recent college graduates know they need to go the extra mile in order to get a foot in the door of their desired profession.
