Intersecting Minds: Education, Business and Technology at the North Carolina State Jenkins Graduate School of Management

Tuesday Morning Quick Hits | March 3, 2009

A hint of positive news to start the morning. Stimulus money has begun to hit the streets, literally. The first infrastructure project has begun in Maryland, and for $2.1M it will create approximately 60 jobs.

Ford posted a 48% decline in monthly sales, and analysts aren’t optimistic for either GM or Chrysler either, according to Bloomberg.

Even Warren Buffett hasn’t remained immune to the recession, as Berkshire Hathaway announced job cuts as well.

CNN has a good article up this morning pointing out some job-hunting strategies. The main gist: network, network, network. And professional associations can be a good way to get started.

Stocks started the morning strong, but the rally has cooled as the Dow and S&P hover near their closing numbers yesterday.
