Based on the extremely uniformed and biased sampling of the job emails I get sent to my inbox, I am getting the impression that this year's job market is a little better than last. I've even seen a few jobs out of the UC system, and few state university systems are in as bad shape as the UC system. I realize that the market is not what it was a few years ago, but there feels like a small surge this year.
Am I imagining things? What are those of you on the market seeing?
