Chemjobber C&EN Index (Industrial), 1/09-6/1/09

Well, folks, there it is in bar graph form -- the past five months or so of the Chemjobber C&EN Index of industrial jobs. Yes, that's right -- in the past six weeks or so, there have been three weeks where there haven't been any industrial jobs at all. Things pretty much stink, especially since those two pips in late February are just two ads (a Merck ad and a Genentech ad.)

Note the huge bar on the far left, which is the measured Index for a single issue of C&EN five years ago (4/21/03). 

You can see the tabulated data here.
