Is CareerBuilder for sale? Microsoft to buy?

And his heart grew three sizes that day...

I’ve been talking with people in various stages of panic over the past few weeks (ummm, months..?), from those beginning to hear the rumblings of imminent layoffs, to those just having felt the axe drop, to those having found themselves on the market for longer than they expected or are comfortable with.

A Contractor's Nightmare

As more and more projects are being canceled due to lack of funding, i.e. Conoco Phillips 6 billion dollar ‘my bad’ from last month. The market is now saturated with many contractors who used to sit on their thrones made from stacks of per diem money as they got paid their “Texas money”, are now faced with the harsh realization that the very teat that used to feed from have dried up!
