The Year of the....

If you believe what you read in the papers, 2008 is going to - in a word - suck. The news coming from Wall Street seems to be consistently downbeat lately, economic indicators are starting to depress people, and I always get a funny little knot in my stomach when people start anticipating the Fed chairman's next speech.

But, if you believe what you read on JobsintheMoney, maybe things aren't going to be so grim. When we asked in our last poll what kind of year 2006 will be, users came back with a split decision: Thirty two percent said we're in store for a better 12 months than most expect, while 31 percent said it will be dismal.

Sixteen percent said 2008 will be a good time to look for a new job, which was a stronger showing than the 10 percent who look on it as a good time to seek a new career.

What's your outlook? Post your comment and let us know. And, be sure to look at the latest poll, which wonders whether you expect your firm to merge this year.
