Finding the right job for the right person with the right needs and wants is always challenging, it is more challenging when the job market is expected to take at least a two years to recover to 2008 pre-recession levels. Some long-range projections of the job market expect the recovery to start in 2014 , well past the time that unemployment will run . For some this is a disaster, they do not have the skills, nor have they invested in updating their own skills to be viable in the job market. For others this opportunity can lead to improved work opportunities that are more in line with what they want and can be done on their own terms. For some of the intrepid a down economy and poor job market reinforces the idea to start their own company. Regardless of where someone is coming from emotionally or intellectually the any issue that delays the job search also makes the job search more challenging. This is true for people who need to work in, have the general security that a large company provides, and not take the risks that a startup or owning your own company entails .
