Shocker -- Survey Finds Journalism Jobs Hard to Come By

The famous annual survey of the journalism job market -- conducted by colleagues in my college -- finds that it's been a tough year for journalism jobs.  Press release here

The lede:  

Graduates of the nation's journalism and mass communication programs in the spring of 2009 confronted a job market unlike any that graduates have encountered in the nearly 25 years for which comparable data are available.

And yet, there are jobs out there for young journalists, especially in smaller markets but even in some big markets where newspapers especially have shed more expensive and more experienced reporters and editors.  But it is tough.
