New York (Tadias) – Despite reports of better job prospects in 2010, it’s still a tough job market out there.

According to CNN: “New college graduates had 40% fewer job prospects (in 2009), a new report shows. And the outlook for 2010, while better, is still not very promising.”

However, for Ethiopian-American entrepreneurs Joseph and Faris Gessese, who were highlighted by NBC last year for assisting job seekers around Central Ohio, the down economy presents an opportunity for business.

Their original website OhioStateList.com, featuring resume builder and Video locator connecting prospective employees and employers, has been renamed and retooled to include regions beyond the Midwest.

“The new name is MyStateList.com, ” Eyaluta Seifu, Director of Public Relation for the website said. “And it has been expanded to service all 50 states.”

Joseph Gessese, who has a day job working on mortgages, told NBC 4‘s Marcus Thorpe that he knows many people who have lost their jobs and he hopes his website will become one-stop-shop for job seekers.

“You want to do something about it,“ Gessese said.
