    Donald Trump isn't firing "The Celebrity Apprentice," but he's bringing back the regular edition of the show with 14 ordinary candidates plagued by the sour job market.

    NBC and Trump said Wednesday they want to put America back to work. His revived ordinary-folks "Apprentice" will recruit competitors who have lost their jobs, are stuck with jobs they don't like, or have finished college with no offers in sight.

    Trump says the winner will land a position with him, while the rest will get advice on how to find their dream jobs elsewhere.

    "The Apprentice" first aired in 2004 and is expected to return in its refreshed edition this fall on NBC.

    The current season of "The Celebrity Apprentice" had its premiere Sunday and is expected back for another run in spring 2011.
