I'm currently looking for a job. Since I've been "aggressively looking" from early September, I've had 3 interviews. I am not getting the response I did back in early '08. There's definitely a slow down here in the NYC area (I am in Fairfield County, CT).

Default very good, not awesome right now

Very good in Las Vegas Nevada. By 2010 there will be at least 50,000 new jobs opening on the Las Vegas Strip alone. Many casinos are expanding by as much as 3 times the size. Room rates are at an all time high and the hotels are usually sold out. The economy problem has hit Nevada, but nowehere as bad as most cities and states.
