Where the Big Jobs Are

The economic headlines with which we are bombarded 24/7 are, as we all know, enough to make you think that we won't make it through the weekend much less the year, and given the negative spin that almost every piece of news gets, it's hard to believe that there are any positives at all.

Clearly we are not living in the fantasy world that existed before the bubble burst or the delusion that the roof (pun intended) would never come off the housing market or the even more naive delusion that the big banks actually had ethics.

Maybe I'd best stop there before I start getting cease and desist letters.

So what does all this have to do with the title of this post? Well, if you are not a regular visitor to the Ask Annie column on the CNNMoney site you might want to check out the piece she posted this past week.

Based on a good deal of the data contained in our Executive Job Market Intelligence Report Anne tries to put some of the executive job market issues into some perspective as well as asking her readers for feedback on the degree to which life style issues impact their decisions about career moves these days.

It obviously struck a chord as before the close of business on Friday, the article was the most read and commented on the site for the day. So if you were ever in doubt of the degree to which this issue is important to people (even high priced executives) check out some of the 40+ comments.

There is nothing like feedback from the real world that helps to cut to the chase.
