Job Market: Another week, another 400k

Things aren't going so well at work. Uninformed people are making uninformed judgments based on uninformed sources.

Just another week at the three letter company I work for. The IT staff is salary, so even though they expect 40, you are deemed as disloyal for anything under sixty. They are withholding fringe benefits because they aren't sure of my "loyalty."

Just another week at the three letter company I work for.

With an updated resume in my recent documents folder, I begin my troll of Monster. It's not the best source for IT jobs, but it's a good barometer to how the industry is doing.

32 posts in the Greater Columbus area. 26 of them are developers. 3 of them are executive level. 3 of them are entry level. None of them are my level.

Another 425,000 jobs gone this week. 453,000 gone last week. The initial claims for unemployment has not been below 400,000 for 12 weeks. 4.8 million jobs, for those who are trying to do the math in your head.

More than the state of Alabama. More than the state of Colorado.

I'm lucky to have a job, but I don't know how much longer my "luck" will hold.
