This is the official kickoff thread for discussion of the 2008-2009 job market. Recent chatter at the IR Rumor Mill has focused on whether or not there are fewer jobs than in recent years, and, if so, why this is the case. The current consensus answers are "yes" and "a slower economy."
Feel free to discuss this, or any other rumors about the general character of the job market, here.
New users should familiarize themselves with our policies as they have evolved in recent years
