May Unemployment Rate Drops to 9.7%

The BLS (Bureau of Labor Statistics) figures for May showed 431,000 jobs created, which lead to the May  unemployment rate dropping .2% to 9.7%. Unfortunately, 411,000 of those jobs were temporary Census positions. As a result, things remain very gloomy!

However, I am reminded today by my own trials and tribulations of food loss that life is not easy. For example, I need to continue to prepare a daily food log of all food intakes to prevent me from binge eating and gaining weight. The same is true for you as a job seeker during this tough times. You need to prepare a daily log of all job-hunting activities to gauge whether you are working smart or just hard.
