State by State percentage of jobs for each career area

I don't know if anyone has seen this website, but if you scroll down until you start seeing the career areas and the individual careers such as nursing you can get some great information about that career. If you click on the nurse link it will send you to a page that tells you the % of jobs in each state broken down by most cities in that state. I don't know if this is old or new information, but it seems to back-up what people are saying about getting a job in this area.
Please let me know if you are still seeing an over staffing or understaffing in your area as the numbers suggest.
that's an excellent site......it pretty much reflects what's going on. the only thing i disagree with is the projection for growth. if the economy doesn't improve alot, the future remains bleak for quite a few years until us older nurses really have to retire whether we want to or not.....the market is very tight. there is no nursing shortage. the jobs maybe posted but there are hiring freezes due to the economy. nurses have returned to the workforce because their s.o. is unemployed and nurses who planned to retire cannot because we lost our butts in 401k when everything crashed. there are nursing schools churning out grads at an alarming rate to take advantage of the economy and the flocking of society to the "recession proof" healthcare field...with no positions to fulfill. there are hospitals that offer "internships" or "residencies" that you pay them to train you available but they are few and far between and don't guarantee employment. right now it just stinks out there hospitals are "short staffed" but they want it that way......due to budget cuts and hospitals are still laying off.http://allnurses.com/nursing-news/jo...ds-662139.htmlhttp://allnurses.com/nursing-first-j...ew-636865.htmlmedscape: medscape accessthe big lie?without a doubt, the main source of frustration experienced by recently graduated and licensed but still unemployed nurses is what could be called "the big lie."in other words, the television commercials that encourage young people to become nurses -- and then abandon them for months (or years) without employment; and the educators who tell them that the associate's degree is perfectly adequate to guarantee employment, that they will have their pick of jobs when they graduate, and that there is plenty of time to get a bsn later on. who knows whether it is greed, ignorance, or wishful thinking that underlies the fairy tales told to nursing students about their future job prospects? whatever the motivation, the disillusionment of our new grads is palpable. the jobs they expected after all of their hard work just haven't materialized, and some grads are getting pretty desperate.

Esme... I do feel like we are sold a pack of lies when it comes to job prospects in the medical field. I thought the link could be a good one, but wasn't sure. It was eye opening to see the many states that are considered over strengthed with nurses. It explains clearly why people in certain areas can't even buy themselves a job. I just don't feel like I can believe the career councilors at the local colleges, because they have quotas to fill and they don't want to tell you that there aren't any jobs for new medical people. I know the economy is in the dumps right now and it is hard for anyone to get a job no matter what field you are looking into. I guess good luck to us all. I do feel that the economy will get better and this will all be behind us, but I don't know when.deAnna
