A Light at the End of the Unemployment Tunnel?

With approximately 13.5% of the U.S. labor force either unemployed (7.2%) or underemployed (6.3%), it is an understatement to say that times are a little tough. Several dear friends of mine have either lost their jobs in this tumultuous time or are getting ready to graduate with fears of their employment prospects. Add to this the workers that fear possibly losing their jobs and the picture ain't too pretty.

However, before we sink into the doldrums of economic distress, let's focus on some positive news. Even in this economy, there are companies that are still aggressively hiring. The key is to 1.) know who they are and 2.) have a top-notch résumé.
