US market picking up

It's heartening to see that the consulting boom that's taken hold in the UK market is also now being felt in the States. An interesting commentary in CareerJournal (part of the Wall Street Journal) details the uptick in both the consulting market and the implications for recruitment in the US market. Makes for pretty encouraging reading (details here)

In the rebounding US market high-level rainmakers can apparently now expect to command a base salary of up to $1 million, whilst M.B.A.s are once again seeing pay offers in excess of $100,000. This upwards pay spiral is mirroring what we've seen in the UK market where recruitment picked up some 12+ months ago. Any US readers out there able to provide anecdotal evidence about the improving hiring market in the States? Do please post your comments below.
