Sign o’ the times

I received my weekly BayCHI job bank email today, which has always contained at least twenty or thirty postings.  Today, however, it was so thin that I mistook the email for some other kind of announcement, and I scrolled right past the one(!) job posting it contained:

Senior User Experience Designer at H&R Block – Cambridge, MA

One job posting in the BayCHI job bank, and it’s not even a Bay Area job. Despite the economy melting down, the market for User Experience peeps has been blessedly unscathed, but I haven’t seen the BayCHI job list this thin since the great dotcom bust of ’01.

Here we go again folks.
