The last dozen years have been a challenging time for job seekers. We’ve been through two recessions which dealt a real blow to many job seekers over the last many years. We dealt with a sluggish national economy that seems to have finally recovered, and yet we’re finding that employment opportunities are still a challenge for some qualified job seekers that are looking for a way out of the unemployment line.
When I was a doctoral student with Pepperdine University, I studied the potential of continuing education shortening the job search … this was my dissertation research that helped identify if taking specific types of continuing education while unemployed might shorten unemployment. I’ve concluded the research, but will continue to study and research this unique topic.
Thanks to the many of you that answered the surveys to support this research!
