The Unemployed

I continue to count myself among the fortunately employed, especially after articles like this one, reporting on former high-powered, high-tech employees working in the Post Office, or at a coffee shop. I know of at least four people who haven't been employed for practically months. It's discouraging.

I've been trying to help where I can, posting my company's open job reqs to alumni e-mail lists. But so far, no bites from my company on the many good people that I know. For those folks still looking to get hired back into high-tech, I suppose it's just a matter of hunkering down. But it's an overall discouraging feeling.
