Simply Hired’s report looks at nationwide hiring trends, too.

“There is significant evidence that the overall job market is improving,” Godhwani says. “Job openings in the Simply Hired database grew 1.5% month-over-month and 9.2% year-over-year. Simply Hired has seen an uptick in job openings for much of last year. Those job openings are now getting filled, and we see more favorable numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. We expect these trends to continue, with a better employment market in 2012.”

    From the above topic it is clear that we should go abroad for only work in Resturant.
    Then why we apply for Master Degree?

  2. Vignesh on February 10, 2012 at 6:11 PM

    These are the student jobs (off campus) someone has to do in dire financial need.

    It doesn’t pay enough. Some even end up with poor performance in academics.

    Not recommended.

    (P.S.: Why to study if goal is to work for a restaurant?)

    Wat r the job opportunities for MS in Industrial Engineering?

    • Vignesh on February 10, 2012 at 6:06 PM

      google it up ” MS in Industrial Engineering? ” and you will get it.

      By the way, graduates work for big industrial companies as executive or associate. [ companies like Boeing, Embraer (aero ) etc. ]

      I hope you got the idea. Have a good day 🙂

    For the above mentioned jobs, it is impossible for international students to apply. Retail, Restaurants do not sponsor H-1B visas nor do health sector easily hire nurses etc. without green card.

      off topic response

  5. Suresh on February 6, 2012 at 10:53 PM
