    From an earlier thread by someone who was worried about minimum wages, he should really look at the job market.

    So, the market is putting your firm's services in high demand as well as demand in general for people to perform similair services. I would think that if architectual work is in high demand so construction, materials and the possible business that will occupy any commerical projects.

    Our firm is in need of highly qualified persons to handle our our expanding marketplace. NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    That's right, you can start tomorrow in an exciting new adventure seeing if you can cook and serve enough hamburgers to satisfy the large influx of our new illegal immigrant customer base. Due to the fact that our current employees are sick of their jobs ( we know this based on recent customer surveys and the fact that a resturant worker has not smiled at a customer since late 1983 ), we are anxious to dupe some new folks into the industry.

    Starting pay is five something an hour like it has been for years, the insurance and benefits are bullshit and you can create your own schedule because you will probably be the manager right out of the gate if you are 16 yrs old or better. Minorities experience rapid advancement (that is why white folks don't work in food service anymore ) and we encoutage seniors to apply.

    PLease call 1 - (800) - BAD FOOD for more information!

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. college graduates are facing the best job market since 2001, with business, computer, engineering, education and health care grads in highest demand, a report by an employment consulting firm showed on Monday.

    "We are approaching full employment and some employers are already dreaming up perks to attract the best talent," said John Challenger, chief executive of Challenger, Gray & Christmas.

    In its annual outlook of entry-level jobs, Challenger, Gray & Christmas said strong job growth and falling unemployment makes this spring the hottest job market for America's 1.4 million college graduates since the dot-com collapse in 2001.

    The firm pointed to a survey by the National Association of Colleges and Employers which showed employers plan to hire 14.5 percent more new college graduates than a year ago.

    The survey also found higher starting salaries this year. Graduates with economic or finance degrees will see the biggest gain with starting salaries up 11 percent to $45,191, while accounting salaries are up 6.2 percent, business management salaries up 3.9 percent and pay for civil engineers 4.3 percent higher.
