Signs of a jobs revival?

Some encouraging news in the jobs report yesterday: unemployment down below 10 percent, manufacturing jobs up for first time in over two years, and a slight shift from part-time to full-time work. Not all of the news was great; jobs figures for 2009:IV were revised downward.

At the MBA deans meeting last week, all of the schools were saying this is the toughest market they have ever faced. The placement rate at NC State is running about the same as elsewhere.
