Right now there are only 872 jobs posted on Media Bistro. And there are 1,761 freelancers looking for gigs on that same site.
Now this is way unscientific because not all freelancers want full-time jobs, but if you do the math, that’s 889 more people than there are jobs! Now this is going to be way more unscientific, but I swear that about a year ago, the jobs on Media Bistro hovered around the 2,000 mark.
Damn the economic downturn! Damn the death of print!
