    I don't know where the statistical information is coming from, but Florida does NOT have a number of openings and has not for approximately 1 year now. The other posters are correct; there are too many new graduates being spit out by schools that aren't telling them that there will not be any jobs to be had upon graduation. I have been out of work for 4 months now and haven't even had so much as an interview because as the other poster stated, there are multiple applicants for 1position.

    I am not a radiologic technologist but a nuclear medicine technologist. Our field is also saturated with new graduates. Only 25% of new graduates obtain positions within the state of Alabama. Other states have similar problems. There are just to many graduates each year for the small number of openings.

    Florida may have alot of openings, but the market is saturated with new graduates. It is very difficult to get a job as a new graduate. A job I interviewed for the other day had 27 applicants. I have been actively looking since May of '08.
