Is the job market better nowadays? It's getting there. Still, it's tough for job hunters as well as for small business that want to grow.

In this week's podcast:

  • Jenny Grasz, vice president for CareerBuilder, tells Bankrate's Mark Hamrick what the hottest job fields are, and describes how to use (and not use) social media in the employment search.
  • Sheyna Steiner, who writes for Bankrate about saving and investing, wonders whether your wallet will become a quaint relic of a bygone time.
  • William Dunkelberg, chief economist for the National Federation of Independent Business, tells Hamrick that small-business owners feel a lot of uncertainty, making them wary of hiring.
  • And Claes Bell, Bankrate's banking reporter, urges individual investors to take a look at the stock market.
