A couple of weeks back, Susan Joyce of Job-Hunt.org mentioned a twitter fight she had with someone from Irving, CA.
She was frustrated because some guy argued, “There are no jobs in Irving. None!”
Nothing that Susan could say could convince him that yes, there are jobs in Irving.
Every day, HR people, career coaches, resume writers and even bloggers hear all sorts of hard luck stories from job seekers. I asked Laurie if I could look at data from LinkUp and answer the question, “Are there jobs out there?”
