With thousands of people in New York city about to loose their jobs from the Bear Stearns fiasco, suddenly, tons of people really need to find jobs fast.
Here is the new option that I found in the Wall Street Journal today: there is going to be a Wall Street Journal Virtual Career Fair starting April 1.
It's completely online, so it's convenient to attend
You will be able to and find listings for jobs that are newly available and further explore various job opportunities in real-time (I'm assuming live chats, forums, webinar presentations)
You will even be able to interview virtually -- which means you should be fully ready as if you're visiting a job fair in person - resume in hand, ready to speak to your skillsets and value you bring to any company
I've been to viritual trade shows, and it's pretty efficient. They have a viritual layout of the conference with trade show booths for each vendor that you can 'visit' and engage in live chats directly with each person, there's literature you can view, download, video you can play, etc. I believe this is a very similiar experience.
Some of the companies planning to be represented are:
Citi Smith BarneyCoventry Health Care, Inc.
Daiichi Sankyo, Inc.
Dow Jones & CompanyEaton Corporation
Lucas GroupMorrison Foerster
Perot Systems Corporation
United States Patent & Trademark OfficeThe Vanguard Group
Let me know if you are planning to attend by leaving a comment below. Or if you've already attended a virtual job fair, any experiences you can share?

Friday's Wall Street Journal (Feb 29, 2008) featured an interesting editorial on p. W11 by Eric Felten called "The Point of Tipping". He uses the recent Starbucks media stunt to close all shops and reboot themselves as an opportunity to delve into our culture's development of the "burden of gratuitous gratuities". While Starbucks was supposedly doing everything it could to serious put the consumer's interests back into Starbucks (meaning great coffee), they glanced over small details like that ubiquitous tip jar on the counter...I agree that there's undue pressure in today's world to potentially tip anything that moves. Felten says of current tipping norms:
"Not long ago, an 18% restuarant tip was a tad better than the 15% that wasI personally grew up tipping 15% reserving 20% or more for notable service. These days, some credit card receipts do the math for you with 15%, 18% and 20%, which tells me that 20% is NOT the average, but rather 18%...How much do you tip when the bill comes after the meal?What's the "norm" these days at buffets? Do you tip 5%? 10%? 15%? Even at "gourmet" buffets like Minado Sushi?And what about the rest of "life"? Do you tip contractors that do work on your house? Do you tip the workers directly or the owner? What about during hotel stays? Do you leave a tip for the housekeeping staff that cleans your room? Or the car rental shuttle bus driver? Or what about when you do Chinese take-out? My local take-out joint has the blank gratuity line on the signature slip -- just as this article points out. Is it expected just for putting you food in a bag?
expected. Now I don't know anyone who tips less than 20%. Soon we'll
feel the need to show our generosity by leaving 25% of the tab."

Rupert Murdoch is definitely a force to be reckoned with -- especially if you're on the editorial staff at The Wall Street Journal it seems. He's the boss now for 2 months, and there's some major changes come down the line. . .
News Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch pledged to broaden news coverage in the Dow Jones & Co. paper and go head-to-head with The New York Times in the battle for national influence....They recently added Weather to the Journal. Now Sports in the Wall Street Journal? I'm assuming that Dilbert in the back of the Marketplace section isn't that far behind?
In the nearly two months that he has been in charge, Mr. Murdoch has worked to deliver on those promises.Major news stories dominate the front page. The long, offbeat or investigative stories--formerly a page-one centerpiece--have grown scarce. Last week, Journal officials said the paper would add sports coverage. . .

Well, it just sounded too good to be true when Rupert rashly claimed that he's going to remove all subscription fees from WSJ.com and make the entire site free -- like some other competing news sites.
The Wall Street Journal's Web site, WSJ.com, will keep a significant portion of its content behind its paid-subscription wall, News Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch said Thursday.
...Mr. Murdoch said. "The really special things will still be a subscription service, and, sorry to tell you, probably more expensive."
Now is the time to really secure the dirt-cheap rates for both WSJ.com and the print version of the paper. $99 for 1 year of print, $125 for BOTH print + WSJ.com online subscriptions for 1 full year + 2 months extra bonus. If you don't realize the value of that offer, you really need to start paying attention!

It turns out that our hunch was right. TV is an evil thing for humans with ages in the single digits (and probably people with double-digit ages too!).
What makes one show superior to another is almost chilling in its simplicity, given that TV commonly serves as a substitute babysitter. "The closer the product comes to simulating the way a good nursery school teacher or attentive parent talks to a young child, the better," Ms. Guernsey writes.
A stunning number of families with babies and young children--39%, in one study--keep the TV on constantly. And the effect on small children is appalling: "Always on" television has been shown to damage their ability to play imaginatively and to develop language, and it reduces the number of nurturing interactions between parents and children. One researcher told Ms. Guernsey that little children trying to learn words in the presence of constant noise are "devastatingly impaired."
Can you believe that 40% of homes just leave the television on all the time?
I wonder if those same parents would do the same if they knew how damaging it was to their children's development.
