Internship Seekers Endure Tough Times
Want to know how your state stacks up to the rest of the U.S. in terms of entry-level job and internship opportunities? Turn to CollegeRecruiter.com, which has published a list of the best and worst states to find these types of positions.
Some states — including Ohio, New Jersey and Georgia — appear to be faring better than others, with significant increases in both categories between April and May 2009.
Recent graduates have had some luck securing seeking full- or part-time positions.
“It appears that the entry-level market has stabilized,” Steven Rothberg, founder of the CollegeRecruiter.com job board, was quoted as saying in a recent press release.
While the number of entry-level job opportunities has remained largely unchanged, internship seekers have a few more hurdles to cross, as the number of internship opportunities plummeted in May.
Are you or have you recently been on the job market? How have you been faring? Are things really as dismal as they sound?
