A Look at Atlanta: Unemployement Rates in Atlanta on the Rise

Reading through some job market news this morning, and I came across this article in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution: Area Jobless Rate Doubles in 1 Year. The title is fairly self-explanatory; last March, Atlanta’s unemployment rate was 4.1%; now it is 9.3%, more than double. Just to put that into perspective for you, that’s more than 480,000 people unemployed, assuming Atlanta has a population of around 5.2 million (why are those sorts of numbers often left out of these stories?) Well, the article made me curious, so I did a blanket search on America’s Job Exchange for jobs in Atlanta. It came back with five pages of results. If anyone in Atlanta is reading this, here’s the first page of results that I got back. Hopefully one of them fits with somebody’s qualifications out there.
