COMMENTS: Go Franklin and Marshall! Get it right this time; 10th time's the charm!

Does this years market really suck or is it just me?

Nope, it really sucks.

Give it time...things will start to heat up soon.

it is still early, esp for tech/design jobs. Tech/design jobs seem to be everywhere, my kingdom for a directing job!

Is it still early at this point? Or is this it? Where are all the jobs?

As someone who is going out on the market for the fifth time, let me assure you: it's not late yet. More jobs should be trickling out in December, and a handful will keep showing up in January and February. Then, around March/April, expect to see short-term gigs start cropping up (as departments scramble to accommodate sabbaticals, etc.)

Is it possible to start listing area that the opening is in? Some of these schools have multiple openings.

Anybody know the story on U of Montana, why there are so many openings?
