Business professors and business majors at the University of Utah are keeping an eye on the economy and their futures.
The financial crisis could usher in a new big chill, a possible job freeze in the financial and business world.
"One of the reactions I'm having from students is they are scared about the job market. That's a huge issue. Finance jobs are going away," says Elizabeth Tashjian, a finance professor at the University of Utah.
But some students seem unfazed. One tells us that Salt Lake firms still are hiring and that the problems at Merrill Lynch and Lehman Brothers won't ripple into Utah.
