San Diego Chemistry Job Market: 2009-2010 update
It's been a while since I've looked at the San Diego job market for chemists; by this measure, things aren't going so hot. The local ACS section for San Diego has a newsletter that typically contains job ads for local companies; I tabulated the current issue and the twelve issues before. As usual, there's all sorts of reasons why this data could be wrong; nevertheless, it's what's available to be measured easily.

As you can see, it's been slim pickings, including a number of months where there were no ads at all. In addition, the number of ads is nowhere near the recordable peak achieved in May of 2008. Best of luck to all out there looking for work. Sorry I can't report better news.
