This really is encouraging, especially if you have lost your job in the last few months, your unemployment is running out, and you need to feed your family or pay off your student loans.  I'm sure you've sent hundreds of resume's detailing your decades of experience, college degrees and credentials, military service, your "team leadership", glowing references from those folks who decided to sent your job overseas or "downsize", and you check your emails hourly for responses. 

LiveCareer's research has determined the Top 15 Jobs for 2014 to be:
  1. Personal Care Aides
  2. Registered Nurses
  3. Retail Salespeople
  4. Food Preparation and Serving Workers (read: WALMART, McDONALDS)
  5. Nursing Assistants
  6. Secretaries and Administrative Assistants
  7. Customer Service Representatives
  8. Janitors and Cleaners
  9. General and Operations Managers
  10. Construction Laborers
  11. Bookkeeping, Accounting and Auditing Clerks
  12. Childcare Workers
  13. Office Clerks
  14. Waiters and Waitresses (read: below minimum wage, counting on tips)
  15. Cashiers
All you unemployed folks out there…..get hopping! Who cares if you were once a bank branch manager, teacher, nurse, fireman, teacher, department supervisor, master mechanic, billing clerk, physician's assistant, librarian, technical advisor for a large corporation, auto worker, college professor or dietician. There are PLENTY of jobs out there up for grabs. (Five folks for each one…..) So what if you have to work 2 or 3 of them…you can ALWAYS work your way up, but never to what you were making a year ago, certainly. Just ask any Republican congressman…..if you can find one to talk with you.

Or better yet, ask your parents ( they're on Social Security living it up anyway) to loan you money to go back to school or start your own business. Who knows…one more degree MAY be the answer and there ARE laws against age discrimination. (Oh, I'm sorry: You are overqualified for this position.)
