Look at the medical industry, its the only sector not being pummeled right now, although I'm sure it will get hit. The Nashville TN area has about 40-50 developer jobs in that area right now. Although the job I accepted was through a recruiter, 3 of the other 4 were direct postings from careerbuilder, dice and linkedin, all permanent. There are a ton of contract and contract to hire jobs out there too, if you get in bed with the right recruiters.
So there are jobs out there, in the right sectors and the right regions.
