Each month, the Bureau of Labor Statistics releases data on the unemployment rate, jobless claims and other economic indicators. With every report, economic experts and analysts give their overview of the hiring situation and trends. Although the big picture suggests the hiring situation has improved from the start of the recession to today, one question remains the same: "Where are the jobs?"
