Adding Up Adweek’s Classified Ads for Jobs takes

We’ll resist the temptation to give our help-wanted chart a heavy black border until the job market in advertising, marketing and media shows fresh signs of life. The volume of help-wanted classifieds running in Adweek is at a 10-year low. And, as has been the case throughout 2001, the slump is remarkably even-handed in its treatment of our six regions. If you’ve got a job, you can take solace in knowing your employer won’t be in an unseemly rush to replace you if you’re squashed by a meteorite.
