News isn’t good: Unemployed than 9 percent, and new job growth has fallen close to zero. That’s bad for the economy. And it may be especially discouraging if you happen to be looking for a job or h careers right now. But it actually shouldn’t matter to you nearly as much as you

That’s because job growth numbers don’t matter to job hunters as much as job 更替)data. After all, existing jobs open up every day due to promotions, resignation(解雇),and retirements. (Yes, people are retiring even in this economy.) In both bad, turnover creates more openings than economic growth does. Even in June of economy was still moving ahead, job growth was only 132,000, while turnover was

And as it turns out, even today—with job growth near zero—over 4 million being hired every month.

I don’t mean to imply that overall job growth doesn’t have an impact on one’s job. It’s true that if total employment were higher, it would mean more jobs for all from(and compete for). And it’s true that there are currently more people applying able job opening, regardless of whether it’s a new one or not.

But what often distinguishes those who land jobs from those who don’t it’s the motivated. They’re willing to do the hard work of identifying their valuable skills about where and how to look; learn how to present themselves to potential employees going, even after repeated rejections. The Bureau of Labor Statistics data shows people who wanted and were available for work hadn’t looked within the last four no longer even classified as unemployed.

So don’t let the headlines fool you into giving up. Four million people get hired the U.S. You can be one of them.

Passage Two

Questions 62 to 66 are based on the following passage.

Our risk of cancer rises dramatically as we age. So it makes sense that the elderly should be routinely screened for new tumors-or doesn’t it?

While such vigilant (警觉的) tracking of cancer is a good thing in general, researchers are increasingly questioning whether all of this testing is necessary for the elderly. With the percentage of people over age 65 expected to nearly double by 2050, it’s important to weigh the health benefits of screening against the risks and costs of routine testing.

In many cases, screening can lead to surgeries to remove cancer, while the cancers themselves may be slow-growing and may not pose serious health problems in patients’ remaining years. But the message that everyone must screen for cancer has become so deep-rooted that when health care experts recommended that woman under 50 and over 74 stop screening for breast cancer, it caused riotous reaction among doctors, patients and advocacy groups.

It’s hard to uproot deeply held beliefs about cancer screening with scientific data. Certainly, there are people over age 75 who have had cancers ——————————
