Thanks to everyone who shared information this year and made it a little easier to get through one of the most difficult job markets in recent memory. A few people have mentioned that this might work better as a forum, so I have created one that mimics the format of the blog but should (hopefully) make it easier to sort through the information and find what you need. You can find it HERE. Please around with it - post any silly thing you want since it won't really be useful until this summer - and leave me comments on this thread if you'd like to see the forum format stay or go.
