Vista, California (PressExposure) September 02, 2009 -- The most recent statistics on the nationâs jobless rates donât seem to be very promising for most people trying desperately to find a job and a means of income. With jobless rates still hovering around Depression years percentages, Americans are no longer relying on their direct fields of education, their learned trade or even years of office training.
Alternative to traditional job search - The unemployed are taking jobs with much less pay doing work they are well over qualified for â they have become the âunder-employed populationâ. Creativity, resourcefulness and vision are replacing the submission of countless resumes that may never be seen. Because of this, one of the boom areas for the jobless population is the start-up online gift store. This market is increasing at rates never seen before. There are several reasons why online gift stores are attractive to the currently unemployed. Wholesale import companies state:
1. A start-up online business from home can be achieved for relatively little money. Shopping cart sites can be obtained free âopen sourceâ shopping cart
sites or very little money from âopen sourceâ shopping carts such as creloaded.com. 2. Working from home makes it possible to continue to search for jobs in their
related fields. 3. The online store can still be run from home as a profitable fall-back, or by another family member if a job position is attained.
They also inform that wholesale imports are commonly the most affordable wholesale items. For reasons such as use of recycled materials, lower labor costs, use of renewable plant resources, such as bamboo products, make the end cost of the wholesale items much less.
Companies implement Easier Start-Up Requirements - Wholesale import companies like http://www.worldbuyers.com are making it easier for entrepreneurs to start a new business. Many companies are re-evaluating such requirements for new accounts such as opening order dollar amounts and re-order dollar amounts. World Buyers spokespersons Marie May stated âWe recently lowered the opening and re-order amounts in an effort to help our existing customers through these trying times and to encourage the start-up entrepreneur. This move has proven to be very beneficial not only to our customer but to the company also. We are opening more new accounts than ever before. And thatâs something were proud of in these economic times.â
