Job Searching After Bankruptcy

Unfortunately, bankruptcy has proved a necessary evil for many Americans during the recession. While no one wants to file for bankruptcy, an increasing number of individuals and families have found themselves with no other means of absolving their debts.

In fact, during the period between June 2008 and June 2010, Americans filed nearly 3.7 million petitions for personal bankruptcy; and year over year, bankruptcy filings rose by nearly a third from 2008 to 2009, according to the Administrative Office of U.S. Courts.
