Job Search in a Full-Employment Economy: A Panel Discussion

The headlines are replete with the fact that US economy has attained full employment.  That’s great if you have a job, but what if you’re (re-)entering the workforce, in transition, or seeking to change jobs?  Could full employment actually be an impediment, as more people apply for the same positions?
