Maybe you should go to Texas... or Wyoming

Wow, according to the numbers on this post from Career Hub, Texas generated 71% of the new jobs in the last 12 month  period (ending in November 2008). For more information you can check the Employment Situation Summary, updated monthly, on the BLS website (and yes, it is grim right now, but it can improve.) If you're interested in Texas, try the Texas State Library Job Line.

CNN also has a list of unemployment rates by state and currently Wyoming has the lowest unemployment rate at 3.2%. (Check out Wyoming Library Jobs, more posting sites at the bottom of the page, if you're curious.)

You can also try these searches in the Career Jet widget in the right hand menu on this blog. Use the keyword librarian or archivist, or combine with a more specific term like academic, and add your preferred state (not deranged, Christmas is almost over, get ahold of yourself) as a geographic keyword.
