obama will go down in history as the worst president in the u.s. EVER
This is probably the only time that I have agreed with Go NE. Both of these Presidents are lousy. Let's just leave it at that because it detracts from the main topic of the discussion.

I'd say it is a topic that is indirectly related though but you do have a point.

You can blame NAFTA for most of the job losses in this country. Losing our manufacturing base has had a trickle up poverty effect on most industries in this country including High Tech which can no longer find enough skilled employees domestically to design and build their products.

Every administration in recent memory has done nothing except increase the size and scope of the Federal government budget and bureaucracy while shipping jobs overseas. We will never get out of debt now thanks to the trillions that are being wasted on handouts, um I mean bailouts i.e. corporate welfare and doubling the size of the deficit yet again. We are going to be trillions in debt and we'll wind up bankrupt because a nation cannot print enough money to get itself out of that kind of debt without seeing a devaluation of the currency where it will hold about as much value as the German Mark did in the Weimar Republic of Germany.

End result? Don't expect to see very many new private sector jobs in the years ahead. Most new jobs will be either government jobs or industries that feed off the government like education and healthcare. Most everything else, except for a few hot spots, will continue to shrink as Socialism becomes more dominant DC.

NYC1DAY. That stinks. I hate hearing stories like this. What is your field of study and/or expertise?

Are you willing to relocate? If so, you stand a better chance of landing a better job if you are mobile.

I have a Bachelors of Science in Management and an MBA (Masters in Business Administration)

I want to relocate because I hate living in Columbia, SC. But, companies are not willing to fly me around for interviews and pay for my hotel stay when I am entry level

You are required to pay for that stuff on your own and that is money that I dont have

I'm not sure location, directly, has much of a bearing on economic conditions. Its more so the conservative (slow but steady) mentality of the central US states which has led them to RELATIVE safety in today’s recession.

However, when things are great economically, they are only good here. We experience a small taste of national economic trends. Conservative lending in these states has kept the housing market in check as well.

The way I look at it...This area has a lot less of everything - The good and the bad. We don't live by anything that we can die from, basically.
