Is the US job market starting bouncing back?

As I heard from various resources lately, it seems like the job market, especially on the high-tech side, is getting better and better. A few companies are beginning hiring. Tons of frozen projects are defrozen.
Is that right or just another rumor?

Nope on the USA rebound.
HP laid off 6,000 last week. Somehow the cuts managed to miss
our department this time.

Dear Friend
The persons who are facing the heat in the Job scenario are the entry level Programmers and people with 1-2 year experience but those who are able to retain their position are those who are the Software Architects .So those people with 4+ years experience in the respective technology area have no problems in getting better jobs .

Sorry to burst the bubble here, but even folks with a good 8-10 yrs. experience AND M.Sc.'s are having it tough. (At least in NYC). It really doesn't look good.

Things are getting pretty tight.
It seems that IT is the sector that is getting hit hardest.
But, if you are in this game for real - then the recession is just part of the game you have to endure.
Just wondering why you don't hear more about American worker's resentment of the H1B program. You would think someone in the spotlight would have started a crusade against this by now.

I think it's already happened. The IEEE has put up an anti-H1B petition on the web and it seems to be gathering steam. Also, there is talk about unionization. Things may be changing really fast...

Hmm, things have been pretty tight since the Fall of 2000, but some narrow-focused HP employees happened to notice that only now - i.e. when the HP swung the axe. I guess they (i.e. those employees) spent too much time fishing. They could have been paying more attention to what's going on in the whole industry outside of their offices...
