  1. These numbers are beyond depressing. Good luck people, save your money.

  2. Those are pretty encouraging numbers. Where do I sign up to be a chemist?

  3. I think good or bad numbers like these are meaningless. Number of offers made based on career fair interviews - now that's something I'd love seeing!

  4. This actually fits in nicely with the theory that jobs exist only for those graduating the top ten percent of schools.

    The applicant/jobs ratio is about 10:1.

    Yes, its very approximate.

    Good thing that ACS unemployment rate is at 4% for chemists! Fortunately there have been no layoffs in recent years.
