This past week saw the release of the jobs report for the month of July, which means that just three more reports will be issued before Election Day. The July jobs report had information for both political parties to try and capitalize on -- 163,000 jobs were added, but the unemployment rate ticked up 0.1 percentage point to make the national tally 8.3 percent. But of course, jobs and economy are to the 2012 election what terrorism and Iraq were in 2004, and what George W. Bush's legacy was in 2008: the biggest issue.

So while these reports are worth following, their influence actually might be waning the closer we get to election day. That's among this week's top stories for those looking to getting a job.
