Meanwhile, people I've talked to at the NSF have heard literally nothing and are not certain whether they should intervene to point out that they actually exist. I picked one hell of a time to graduate. Just hoping to end up with a job before we lose an entire generation of scientists.
So on that cheery note, I'd genuinely like to wish you the best... it's rough out there, and all we can do right now is support each other and keep trying.
Thanks, TB. And good luck to you, too.
Like Som said I'm not terribly worried about it; have an interview this morning actually so fingers crossed on that. It would be half the commute I currently have as well. The times they are a-changing, but everything is fluid. I lost my job 3 weeks before 9/11 and it took me almost a year to find full time employment again and I survived. We'll all be fine.
