You are infinitely employable, but are mired in a long job hunt. You’ve had bites here and there, but no real leads yet… and no job offers.
Is the problem you? The economy? Your job search strategy? Or is it a matter of how you stack up against your competition? If you are like most young professionals, the answer to those questions is “E: All of the above.”
