PLEASE READ-Regarding Job Outlooks

Postby mith » Sat Jan 14, 2006 8:26 pm

If you're here to post a topic asking about job outlooks or future prospects, you probably will not find much information other than personal anecdotes. For data concerning these, it would probably be more helpful to look for the labor statistics provided by the government of the country.

For example, the U.S. government has the Bureau of Labor Statistics
which publishes the job outlook handbook for the U.S.

Other resources:

Try using google to search for "labor statistics" or "labor outlook"

Very interesting stuff--sad how the job market for PhDs has been hit so hard. I wonder to what extent it is due to too high a volume of PhDs being produced for the job market and academia.

Government statistics are pretty useless. They adddress what was, not necessarily what is or will be and thy are limited in their information as there is no reporting requirement. Th best way to find opportunties is through networking - e.g. through your prof and his professional network.
