The U.S. economic recovery has been uneven, reports The Economist. That's why you may still not be having any luck getting a job, despite economic indicators that things are improving.
Suppose you don't live in one of the 10 metro areas which have been creating new jobs? Well, since employers have cut way back on relocating new hires, you may simply be stuck in an economic wasteland, at least for now. You do, though, have the option of applying to the more prosperous regions and then paying for your own move. For some unemployed that has turned their careers around.
