It seems like quite a few of y'all on the friends list are either sporting shiny new employment or pretty damn close to it. Heck, I've even got something starting to simmer on the side, so it looks like there's definitely work to be had nowdays.

Is this an actual good sign, are things improving overall? Or is that light at the end of the tunnel an oncoming train?

What say ye, new hires?

In staffing, we're REALLY busy. The company I'm with now is hiring like seven more recruiters. You still got that thing from Google on simmer?

Nah, they wanted me to move and I wasn't down with that. I did, however, hand them someone's name who I knew used to work at Sun, hopefully that worked out. Haven't heard. :)

Yeah, things are definitely better. About six months ago there was nothing to be found around here - even my current job was full, which isn't something that happens often. Now the crappy jobs are opening up again as people get better employment. I'm one of three people I know that's leaving my old job for my new job, but many people have left lately as better opportunities have opened up. I think the worst of the crunch is over, even if the federal government can't get their wallet in check.

The whole federal budget thing is just political kabuki theater anyway - the Republicans are parading their $38b "cut" around to the teabaggers like it's some major victory, but when war funding is factored in they're actually spending $3b *more* than before.

There's a good writeup over on The Washington Post about it. Bloody liars, every last one of them.

What really worries me is how many people seem to think what's going on in the capitol right now is progress...
