Unemployment Looking Bleak for Generation Y in 2013

 Unemployment Looking Bleak for Generation Y in 2013Generation Y or the Millennial Generation, born in the 1980’s and 90’s, don’ t have much to look forward to as they enter the professional work field.  Here is an interesting statistic I found in an article in the Huffington Post:

The overall unemployment rate for 18 to 29-year olds in December was 11.5 percent, according to the national, non-partisan organization Generation Opportunity, which analyzes the data specifically for that age range.

David Pasch, Generation Opportunity’s Director of Communications, told HuffPost Live Monday that those numbers don’t even account for the 1.7 million young people who aren’t counted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics anymore because they have given up looking for work.

“If you were to actually factor those in, effectively 16.3 percent of 18 to 29-year-olds did not get up and go to work this morning,” Pasch told HuffPost Live’s Jacob Soboroff.

That’s an astoundingly high number of unemployed workers in that age range.  Recent grads of the Millennial Generation need a way to stand out from the crowd and get employers to want to hire them!  One of the best ways to convey your fit for a company is by creating a Video Cover Letter.

Gethiredwithvideo.com is a great resource for recent grads and all unemployed workers to create Dynamic Video Cover Letters and Resumes that will ensure that they get noticed by employers and Get Hired!
