    Are you having a difficult time? I have been doing a sort of engineering consulting for the last 8 years. My job is stable and the pay is very good however it makes me feel like I am dying inside. Each day I spend here I get more and more stupider. I was just wondering what the job market is like and figured the OT forum on Talkbass would be the best place to find out.

    Round here,...unless it's Hospitality,...the job market sucks. Luckily I'm okay with working in the hospitality industry and have a low cost of living.

    Yeah, the male escort business seems to have tanked badly lately.

  7. I have gotten 5 job offers in the last 4 months, only one of those did I apply/interview for. Depends on who you are, and what you do.

    Actually, metron, we're all just voices inside your head.

    Eh?
    In your case (and mine), it depends on where you live too.
     
  15. Actually, you're wrong. And I've never been so happy to say that.

    I go to a job-hunting ministry on Wednesday mornings at a local church. There have been 400-500 people there for the past several months. Packed to the rafters. I would say 90% are professionals, ex-managers, etc. One interesting thing is 90% are all in their 40's to 60's. It is a very strong indicator that age descrimination is alive and well, heh. Also, all those older pros and managers just make too much money I suppose and will get squeezed out of orgs faster than younger less-paid workers.

    So many variables to consider to answer your question. Location, profession, etc. Another big factor is your job networking skills. Some folks are people-oriented, good talkers, extroverts and just natural-born networkers. Those types will land jobs much more quickly than introverts - in any economic environment. Consider how good a networker you REALLY are before leaving a stable job.

    I know you sound bored with your current job, but from my perspective I suggest you milk that cow awhile longer until this jobless recovery turns into a recovery (with jobs). IMHO.

    Good luck.
