Department of Workforce Development Released this statement on 3-14

Wednesday, March 14, 2012 Because the unemployment rate in Indiana recently dropped below a 3 month average of 9% unemployed Hoosiers will no longer be able to receive Extended Benefits, or EB. This program previously lasted for 20 weeks, from weeks 80-99 of the possible 99 weeks of benefits. The last day Hoosiers can file EB vouchers will be Saturday, April 14, 2012. The last benefit payments for those receiving EB will be made on Monday, April 16, 2012. No further EB payments will be made after this date regardless of whether an EB recipient has weeks remaining in their claim. Please see DWD's website for more information.

Looks like alot of people In Indiana will be losing Benefits
and these tiers are so confusing, alot of people dont even know what tier they are even on.

considering that #1 Indiana is leading the nation in job creation. #2 we have the best business climate in the midwest. and #3 people are relocating to Indiana to find jobs i don't find this surprising.
There are plenty of employment opportunities in Indiana. just actually requires you to get off your rear and actually look. Careerbuilder.com etc.
There are plenty of resources to find jobs right now and there are over 3.5M job openings in the US. so its a matter of you not having skills/an education or don't really care that much for a job.

Well at least try to refute what was said instead of trying to dismiss as something completely erroneous. For instance, Indiana being the best business climate in the MW is all dependent on who's doing the study. While fiscally, Indiana is doing better than its MW neighbors, it doesn't mean it has the best overall climate.

Are there job opportunities in Indiana, yes, there are. It tends to be one of two issues. The first issue lies with those who have given up searching for viable employment. They do not see fast food as viable or at least something that brings in at least some income until more viable employment can be obtained. The second is qualifications. Depending on the market and area of the state, finding qualified individuals could be a problem. On insideindianabusiness there was an article dealing with the southern Indiana/Western KY job market so in a nutshell the Evansville area. From the survey done by employers (manufacturing), there's a large population group they consider not qualified to make an immediate impact. You can go to the site and read for yourself if you would like. Again, that's southern Indiana around Evansville. Those same employers more than likely would not have an issue in Indianapolis, NWI or Southern Indiana around Louisville and finding qualified personnel able to immediately add value as they are high manufacturing areas esp. NWI in Lake and Porter counties. So while you may just try to dismiss what broad said, it does have a ring of truth to it.

Are there resources for job seekers yes. Of course you have CB and Monster, staffing agencies and Indiana Workforce Development. Each region or at least most regions in the state have their on version of IWD that caters just to their particular region or of course you can always just go to the IWD web site which takes into account the entire state. They also have job postings that I'm not too sure a lot of people really know about. Of course you would go there to look for state jobs but they also have private employer job postings.

I read a study a couple of months ago indicating the job growth in the Indianapolis area will be above the national average in the next few years. Some of that is bound to spill over into adjacent counties that are on the periphery of the Indy metro area. Unfortunately places like Elkhart and Goshen still won't see much improvement to the local economy for quite some time.
