Over 350-thousand and counting. That's how many people the Obama transition team says have submitted resumes online hoping to land a job with the incoming administration. The problem is there are only an estimated three- to four-thousand jobs available at this time.
Some federal employment specialists say the record number of applicants can be attributed in part to the current state of the economy. "A lot of people want to work in a stable environment," said Kathryn Troutman, founder of The Resume Place. "They really don't know where else to go to look for a job that's stable and steady and would have potential, so I think the economy is one thing."
