unemployment from 2009-2010 •In the past, present, and future, there has and will always be a relationship between supply and demand
•Organizations, which have openings for specific positions; requiring applicants with higher education calls for a specific demand. Unemployment was steady around 4-6% between 2000-2008. •Likewise, individuals with higher education and carry specialties supply those demands.

type of unemployment that results from workers being between jobs as a result of a lay-off or simply because workers volutarily quit their current jobs for better ones.

Frictional unemployment does not have much of a negative effect on the economy because higher frictional unemployment replies that more individuals are bettering themselves through ways like higher education. 1 in every 5 college students are less
optimistic on what the future holds. According to ECONOMICS: PRINCIPLES, PROBLEMS, AND POLICIES “Frictional unemployment is inevitable and, at least in part, desirable. Many workers who are voluntarily between jobs are moving from low-paying, low-productivity jobs to higher-paying, higher-productivity positions. That means greater income for the workers, a better allocation of labor resources, and a larger real GDP for the economy.”(P. 531.) To ensure that we do not become the statistics, students need to obtain an entry level position and internship job which allow them to gain experience so after graduation will helps employers and student. By looking forward into future with the rate of Frictional unemployment and the demand for achieving higher education degree the job market for student will be more challenging than ever and student can not only hold on to their AA degree or even BA degree and expect to receive a high quality job.
