UK Unemployment Rises Again

By Guest Author On February 26, 2011 Under Setting Goals, Success Secrets

The number of people out of work in the UK rose once again in the three months leading up to the end of November, the Office for National Statistics has revealed. Prospects don’t to look altogether rosy either, the raft of spending cuts on the way means that more jobs will go from the public sector. For those already unemployed and looking for work, or people working the public sector, this does not make for happy reading.


The recession created the jobs fallout, with many companies going bust or being forced to streamline, but the after effects are long lasting and forecast to continue affecting the jobs market for many months to come, those hit but the cuts are unlikely even to be able to afford MP3 players.


Perhaps hardest hit will be graduates, having studied for up to four years, many university leavers will be expecting to leave and walk straight into a well-paid job in their chosen industry. Sadly, the hope of a good job at the end of it all will end up being nothing more than a distant dream for most when they graduate.


Because degrees are no longer an exclusive marker of intelligence, graduates are unlikely to secure a job on the strength of their qualifications alone. This means months spent indoors with theToshiba Laptops trawling through job agency websites.


The bleak reality is that thousands of talented graduates will fall by the wayside as good jobs elude them and they settle for lesser professions unrelated to their degree course. This is a product of Labour’s heavy investment in education and the ongoing effects of a recession whose aftermath will be felt for years to come. Vacuum cleaners.
