It doesn't take long on the job market to discover a scarcity mentality permeates the job search process; postings on job boards are thinner with each passing day. For the few good jobs that are advertised, it draws three, five, even ten times as many applicants as they did two or three years ago.
The same is true about job fairs; fewer companies are willing to go through the time and expense of setting up booths at traditional career and internship fairs, and those companies that are represented at job fairs have fewer jobs to offer. Even worse, positions that were once entry level are now offered as unpaid or low paying internships, if at all.
Since the recession, many traditional employers are still buttoned up tighter than Punxsutawney Phil after he’s seen his shadow on Groundhogs day. No wonder people engaged in the job search feel surrounded by an atmosphere of fear and uncertainty.
