Well, we've been hearing about a possible recession and definitely weak real estate market for a long time now. But I haven't really worried about all the hype too much because our business seems to keep growing, despite all this. But today it finally started to sink in as a reality. I posted a job opening on craigslist for an office manager / receptionist. That was Friday afternoon. I had over 60 resumes in my inbox by the end of that day. By this morning, I had over 100! And the crazy thing is that - as I review these resumes - half of these applicants are way over qaulified. I mean, this is just a fairly simple $14 per hour desk job. Not quite entry level. But nothing I expect anyone to have a degree for. So as I review these resumes, over half of the people applying have college degrees or a similar accreditation! Some are have a degree in nursing. Some are experienced, licensed real estate agents. But many have full 4 year degrees. Holy crap! Is the economy that bad that the best thing you can find with a 4 year degree is a $14 per hour receptionist job? I dunno. It just blew my mind. First of all, I've never had that many applicants for a job before - ever! Second, I never had that many QUALIFIED applicants for a single job - ever. It's an employer's market...that's for sure.
