Where The Jobs Are

The market for jobs in advertising, media and marketing continues to strengthen, judging by the volume of help-wanted classified ads running in Adweek. If anything, the numbers in the chart understate the gains, since we published one fewer issue in July 2004 than in 2003. (Unlike last year, we went dark this year for the July 4 holiday.) The real test, of course, will be whether the market displays these animal spirits in the fall, when summer’s lull is over.
