Halifax job market is STILL fucked

I went out to Alberta in 2008 for better employment after being laid off from my job in Halifax, stayed out for years but then missed everyone on the east coast. I gave up my $115,000/year job to be with my family and friends. I knew I was going to take a pay cut, but what I didn't know was that I was still going to be unemployed after three months of being back! I have 10 years of experience in my field and had TWO interviews since Christmas time! And it's not that there were hardly any jobs to apply to (I'm not an idiot, I made sure there were available jobs before heading back). I applied to 12 positions I really wanted, and about 30 that were lower level. The vast majority of responses I got were rejection emails! What the fuck is up with this place?? In Edmonton, I got interviews for much better jobs than the ones I've been rejected from in Halifax. So clearly it's this city, not me! —Back To The West I Go
