Money in the bank

If the number of open jobs in the U.S. were filled, our unemployment rate would be under 7%.

But... many of them can’t find qualified candidates.

As an example, companies need a lot of technical workers, but a great number of our unemployed were trained to work in construction and other non-technical fields.

The number of job openings has risen 37% this past year, but are still 1.2 million less than the pre-recession.

Insurance positions lost 6900 people in June, but we still have unemployment in the 3+% range.

When interviewing you need to be honest about your past achievements.

In this day and age of technology, its typically not difficult for an employer to be able to “reach out” to other industry people and uncover the truth.

Check out this article from Fox News. It has a tax calculator to figure out how your nest egg will be affected if the tax cuts are not extended.
