Someone thinks the job prospects look good for some:

“The future for college graduates is bright. The future for people with graduate degrees is even brighter, and there is no future for high school dropouts.”

The citizen times has been posting this same rubbish since January of last year. I'd take it with a grain of salt.

MMMM. 4 year business degree........2 years operations management degree............7 years materials management/material analyst. Laid off in 2009 from Volvo. Had to move to Wyoming to find employment. Worked out good though. Got away from state taxes/high gas prices/ and many other reasons to move. Still have a townhome that we can't get rented or sold.

On a more positive note, in last month's National jobs report those with no high school diploma had an unemployment rate of 17.9%, those with a high school diploma were at 11.9%, those with some to 2 years of college were at 8.4%, and those with a college degree were at 5%. So as the the story points out "get as much education as you can stand"! And as eifjam points out you may just have to relocate to get the job you are trained for, but folks have been doing that for a long time. If you're not willing to relocate then better be willing to put up with the lower local pay scale. It might not be what folks want to hear but that's often the way it is

What's the likelihood of finding part-time work as a yoga teacher in Asheville? Is the market flooded?

The market is flooded with yoga instructors. That is no guarantee you won't find such a position, but around here if you shake the trees yoga instructors and massage therapists fall out.

In terms of the original point, let's wait and see. I'm still not betting on a real economic recovery in general, nor an uptick here other than tourist season kicking off. There are a lot of economic demons lurking, both nationally and locally. The sad thing is many of them are self-inflicted at both levels. Between those observations and prognosticators seeing what they want to see and ignoring the rest (on both sides), we shouldn't get our hopes up.

And then there is the Citizen Times. I may not be sure what the right answer is, but I'm willing to bet they find the wrong one!
