This is true in my experience. I got my degree at the end of 2003, and in 2004 I couldn't find an IT job in the city where I live. This year I was able to find the perfect one with much less effort. :D

CHEMICAL ENGINEERING.

i saw a similar list, claiming chem eng gets paid the highest.
i suppose oil and gas prices have something to do with that.

I have a Mechanical Engineering degree and can't find work to save my life. I graduated in December 2003.

Nope, I had changed majors late and switched schools, so I had to make up for lost/unused credits in summer school, never had a chance to do an internship. I even have an EI license too.

i know the feeling i work with so many engineers to know that im smarter than 90 percent of them and it just pisses me off to know what they will be getting paid 20-30 more than me... Wish i could go back.. i may in the future but im almost done with my current degree.

That doesn't necessarily mean you'll get the job over them.

Yeah, it's good to keep appraised of where the current demand for workers is... Thing is it takes time to get through any program, so along the way things can change... One advantage I see to knowing something of ecconomics, even if one isn't going into this line of work...

What might help, is if we could all design another y2k situation... They might be looking for peeps to upgrade them/resolve that one for them. I think the next date issue is closer to 2038 however, and it isn't on January first. From what I gather (and I have taken some C/C++) it has to do with the time.h header file, and some of the time functions in there. It stores it as a 32-bit int (if I remember correctly) starting at sometime in 1972. When this time in the year 2038 is reached, the function will roll back to 0, and report it as 1972 again...
