The “Bridge Job” Enters our Recession Vocabulary

bridge11With jobs scarce  – and jobs that actually utilize your skills and experience and fit with your interests even scarcer, many people are looking at “Bridge Jobs” as a better alternative to no job at all and worse than being underemployed. Perhaps this term builds off of the Bridge to Nowhere from last year’s Presidential campaign.  Or maybe it was the bailout or bridge loans that the government has been giving out.  Or perhaps with news words like “Staycation”, it was just naturally going to happen with the changing world around us.  Wherever the origin of the term “Bridge Job”, it’s a job and something that people are looking at in the harsh light of today’s economic reality.
