Unemployment: High-Tech Woes

The shakeout in telecom and internet business has been especially fierce this year. NPR's Jim Zarroli has a profile of Joe Nadan, a high-tech executive in Yonkers, N.Y., who lost his job more than a year ago and has been looking for something new ever since. Nadan knows the obstacles: He is older than most job hunters and over-qualified for many of the jobs that come up.
