Beans for bean counters

Firings continue as more Philly-area chief financial officers expect to layoff members of their crew instead of adding new finance folks in the fourth quarter (which, can you believe it -- starts in four weeks!!??). But the real news here is that both the layoff and hiring numbers are small. It's 10 percent firing, six percent hiring. The remainder are expecting to hold onto the status quo. That's the good news from Robert Half International, a staffing firm that specializes in finance hiring and, obviously, survey taking. This Philly news is based on interviews with 200 local CFOs.

In a suffocating economy, a breather counts as good news. You can see how we stack up with the national stats by clicking here
