    With economists assuring that a recovery is underway, one very large question remains: Where are all the jobs? GDP may be expanding again, but both unemployment statistics (especially among the young) and anecdotal evidence reveal that this good news hasn't translated into the millions of jobs Americans need to get back to work. The jobs drought continues. But there is hope.

    Just because the overall picture is less than sunny doesn't mean there aren't bright spots.
