Page 1 of 10

10 Worst Job Markets in the US: the job market offers many different types of employment and occupations. Currently, the global economy’s fluctuation has made even once-solid positions vulnerable. Moreover, the global market’s pace sets the trends for local economic development. While certain industries become more important, new job opportunities come up, and positions become high-demand. Yet unemployment has affected a large amount of the US population. According to a Gallup report, twenty percent of Americans have named unemployment or job problems as the most important problem facing the country, as of May, 2014.

Moreover, different cultural patterns affect the job market, introducing new trends and variables. Also, technology and its development have a deep impact on the demand and environment of an occupation, as well as on its remuneration. Indeed different fields can be enhanced, and particular job experiences are likely to progress. But of course, each country provides diverse job opportunities or not aside from the overall market for certain professions. If you are curious about what the 10 worst job markets in the world are, check out the list we’ve made, featuring the top countries in which people reported having the hardest time finding a job.
