The competition for jobs is intense.
There are 6.1 unemployed workers, on average, competing for each job opening, a Labor Department report shows according to the Associated Press.
That’s down slightly from 6.2 last month — the most since the department began tracking job openings nine years ago, AP reports.
But it’s a dramatic increase from only 1.7 workers per opening when the recession began in December 2007.

I know there’s no silver bullet in this economy, but have you come across a bronze one that people could learn from?
