I remember sitting for lunch with some job hunting friends back in September or October, just before I left my last position. We were all discussing our job hunt, which, at the time, felt more daunting then ever.

We had been asking each other if anyone else was noticing a dwindling number of positions posted, which was something none of us were expecting to see. Eventually, someone looked at a calendar and pointed out a “Truth Of The Job Market,” one which, a few months later, I feel might be inaccurate.

Someone said, “You know, we have to get interviews in before Thanksgiving, because no one will hire us until 2010 if we don’t.” An optimistic job seeker? Say it ain't so.
