MBA Jobs (apparently hard to find one these days)

Businessweek has another depressing article on the state of the MBA job market and how the traditional lines of networking are breaking down because everyone is too concerned about their own job, to help others find one. The article breaks down how the job market is affecting each participant from first years, to second years, to even alumni. Times like these I am reminded of the Frank Sinatra song  High Hopes where the ant moves a rubber tree plant and a ram takes down a dam…gotta conjure up your inner ant or ram in a time like this.

Lyrics to follow:

Next time your found, with your chin on the ground
There a lot to be learned, so look around

Just what makes that little old ant
Think hell move that rubber tree plant
Anyone knows an ant, cant
Move a rubber tree plant

But hes got high hopes, hes got high hopes
Hes got high apple pie, in the sky hopes

So any time your gettin low
stead of lettin go
Just remember that ant
Oops there goes another rubber tree plant

When troubles call, and your backs to the wall
There a lot to be learned, that wall could fall

Once there was a silly old ram
Thought hed punch a hole in a dam
No one could make that ram, scram
He kept buttin that dam

cause he had high hopes, he had high hopes
He had high apple pie, in the sky hopes

So any time your feelin bad
stead of feelin sad
Just remember that ram
Oops there goes a billion kilowatt dam

All problems just a toy balloon
Theyll be bursted soon
Theyre just bound to go pop
Oops there goes another problem kerplop
