From the Irish Times:

THE RANKS of the long-term unemployed swelled by almost 25,000 people in the past year, while the overall unemployment rate more than doubled to 12 per cent.


Here is an article about a newly qualified teacher attempting to find work. He talks about a friend who got a temporary post at a school and felt like she won the lottery. When I read the article I felt guilty because it actually made me feel a little better. It was nice to know I'm not the only one!

Please understand why when you ask me how the job search is going and I say it's not, that I'm not holding back! Really!


  1. Way to be Ireland! What perfect timing we have!

  2. It's depressing isn't it? Just have to keep things together and hope it ends - I just keep telling myself I can fly away if it gets really bad but trying to stay! Good luck with your search!
