Employment a Requirement for Hiring?

In finding a job, getting hired on September 8, 2010 at 1:54 am

My last blog post was about my frustration with the vicious cycle of employers not giving the chance to gain experience because you don’t have experience. To make matters worse, an article on Yahoo! claims that recently, a popular requirement to get hired by a lot of employers out there is that you need to be currently employed. Throw them a bone, people! It just so happens that my boss is one of these employers who are turned off by an applicant who is unemployed. She’s explained before that she thinks they’ve just been out of the loop too long and have lost their motivation and work sense. Maybe there’s some truth to what she’s saying…but it seems like self-defeat for our economy.
