    Is it just me or are there not any openings like there has been the last couple years at this time?

    Or is it just too early?

    There are openings, just not ones most of us would ever want to apply for.

    They are being created, but not filled.

    Touche. And so true.

    That actually makes me feel bad. As I'm graduating in a few days, I think I've applied to every jobs posted on these boards...and if they're jobs that no one is applying for, you'd think I'd get some offers, right!?

    But no. Nothing. Nada. Zippo.

    My degree is looking worthless. And my parents are demanding their money back.

    Another reason to put yourself through school. No guilt when you don't have a job lined up for the Sunday after graduation.
  7. There are plenty of entry-level openings in the newspaper business (not necessarily sports). There are far fewer quality openings around which you can build a life and career. That's the regrettable thing.

    I'm about to celebrate my third year at the "high-end starter" paper. Anything that gets posted isn't even a lateral move, and I'm apparently not good enough to get noticed at bigger places or there aren't openings there either.

    Shoulda been a mechanic.

    kinda asking for a lot with the whole "build a life and career" line of thinking, aren't you?

    Ah, law school, last refuge of the jobless scoundrels of our industry. Problem is, they're producing WAY too many graduates for the jobs available (sound familiar?) and the last thing you want to do is accrue $50-100,000 debt to get a paralegal or low-level government lawyer job.

    I've thought about it to the point of taking the test (157 cold three years ago) but I don't think I could hack.
