Share Article

Recently, an ugly new jobs report showed the economy lost more than 60,000 jobs in the month of February, the biggest drop in five years. As businesses tighten their belts American workers are being laid off leaving thousands searching for their next job.

What this means is that there are going to be more people looking for jobs with fewer jobs to be had. This creates a stressful experience for the average American who is looking for work to pay his mortgage, feed his family and to pay his bills. "Getting a job in this type of stressed economy puts more pressure on the candidate to be prepared and to be a stronger interviewer." says interviewing expert Susan Leahy MA ABS who is the instructor of the Nailing the Job Interview- Freeway Guide ( ).

"I instruct my clients to do their work before hand, create a portfolio to showcase past work, come up with specific examples to share during the interview and to take some type of interview training to be prepared before you walk into the interview. Companies are willing to invest more in a candidate who is confident and prepared then one who has a great looking resume."

According to a report compiled by the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics, "Among the 50 states and the District of Columbia, California recorded the largest number of initial (unemployment) claims filed in mass layoff events during 2007 (357,994), 22 percent of the national total. The states with the next highest numbers of initial claims were Michigan (125,942), Pennsylvania (108,128), Ohio (83,429), and Illinois (80,477)."
