The job market is tight for everyone. The recent news article about nervous students was good for a laugh but shows where we are. The article was several interviews with soon-to-be graduates and some helpful hints about interviews. The hints included telling people who want to be professionals of some sort that that sweatshirts/ jeans are inappropriate for interviews and that their cell phones should be hidden (hidden! - how about turning them off?).
People who need such advice should be given a paper hat and name tag at graduation. Something they can use.
