  •  Yup, I'm a statistic (7+ / 0-)

    I'm on there.  Lost a job, can't find work I'm qualified to perform...Thanks, W

    •  even worse (4+ / 0-)

      I was laid off in Jan 2006 after doing tech support for close to 10 years. So I went back to school and got a Master's degree and graduated this past May. Now I'm either way overqualified (and competing with other poor schleps with less experience and education who they figure they can pay less) or lack experience in the fields I'm educated for.

      I've been turned down for a job bagging groceries, for God's sake. Because they saw my degrees and said they wanted someone who would be a long-term employee.

      If that's not a kick in the jewels, I don't know what is.
