I believe the unemployment figures would have looked different (lower unemployment rate) if the Census Bureau had taking the count around April 2010, instead of waiting until summer when the Federal hiring market flattened out.

I'm so happy I'm in school right now...otherwise I have no idea what I would have done being unemployed for so long. I can't even get a serving job.

You got that right, any metal I dump by the side of the road is gone in less than 20 minutes! Scrap is the way many survive in the Miami area.

I believe you have already learned just because you have a college education doesn't mean you are promised a job at the time of graduation. These are tough times and not just in Miami, you definitely will have a better chance of employment in Atlanta though.

Yeah. I decided to do a job search back in Atlanta...and wow...opportunities galore. Still struggling here to find something decent. Most of the decent one I had found that I knew I would like required that I knew Spanish. Might as well take it as an elective when I am done with my required classes, if I'm going to make it here.
