The job situation sucks and it doesn’t appear to be getting any better. Unlike a disproportionate number of Spaniards, expats aren’t (because we can’t?) gunning for the security of government and large corporations, but I still think we need to look hard at where future opportunities will emerge and how we can position ourselves to capture them.

This is an interesting article, perhaps from a cultural perspective (the statistics are alarming) as a commentary on how risk is perceived and how it’s affecting the economy and employment. Additionally I think it just makes a lot of sense for those looking for work to consider how their skills can fit into the economy – it might be different than what you thought.
