Interesting article from the Wall Street Journal on the still unfortunate lack of improvement in the staffing industry. Some staffing agencies are apparently seeing slight increases here and there. While other staffing companies are embracing technology and innovation to make their way through this economy.
The article does fail to mention any bright spots such as an increase in demand for healthcare IT professionals. However, it's most likely because there is still a very long and dark tunnel before the faint light in the distance.
