Great job openings, no candidates.

The problem, according to Willoughby, is that they are bombarded by résumés from job seekers without the two years or more of health care experience necessary. "We're seeing a lot of people trying to break into the health care arena," she said.

This attitude really ticks me off. Most places these days require experience. Where is someone supposed to get that experience when no one will hire them???

Well, owning a call center, automation is really key when the hiring process is done, simply because I get over 100 applicants for a job that has only about 5 openings.

What I do however is take the top 30 applicants and interview them myself. On some occasions I will hire 15 agents and give them what I call a "trial" period. Where they are hired for 3 months and if they are not up to par with our expectations they are let go or transfered to another part of the company which would better suit their needs.

I do agree though that there is a lot less "personal" time that goes into the hiring process today.

Just my 2-cents

Exactly what I was thinking. Or, they are trying to find highly OVER qualified people, trying to take advantage of the situation in the economy where larger corporations laid off thousands of qualified people. On top of that, they are offering poor wages to those over qualified people, and the positions are not needed to be filled as an emergency, so they can sit vacant. Nurses for instance, the article said is offering 35-40k a year. for a nurse. That's pathetic for a Nurse with a BSN.

"Green" Jobs, there is no shortage of engineers in this economy, so what specifically are they looking for? Most "colleges" (for lack of a better term) offer certification in working on things like windmills and solar panels in a few short months. Problem is, how many technicians does it take to manage a windmill? Not many. How many people to manufacture solar panels? Mostly computerized, they can then have some Mexicans put the panels on roofs and such.

"Green Energy" takes away dozens of jobs to create one.. it makes no sense. The people being laid off are unspecialized because often they come from the industry that is being replaced.

I am not surprised to see this really. One thing I see happening is that some employers are taking advantage of the current economic situation by lowering salaries for new job openings, holding out for the perfect candidate, and/or looking for VP credentials to fill middle management positions.

I have recently seen jobs in my industry/field that are paying as much as 20-30 grand less than just a couple of years ago or even last year.

It is very frustrating when you see an ad for a position that is an exact description of your career history/experience and may even be the exact job title you held for several years. Yet you don't even get a phone call or email after sending yiour resume. You call and all they tell you is they have received 300 resume's sorry.....

Not only that, but they list the salary and it is thousands less than you were making 5 years ago.
