Hello out there fellow piggs - I am finding it IMPOSSIBLE to find work in IT and I wonder if anyone out there that reads this blog, knows of ANYONE that has obtained a new job in IT this year ?
I have been in IT for about 20 years and have seen my share of downtimes, (i.e. worked at start-ups that imploded, been laid off, had great jobs at good companies that were bought out and run into the ground, seen my position shipped off to India and re-invented myself as a BI consultant, ... etc ) but I have NEVER found it this hard to find a new position. I am active on Linked In ( i.e. I have over 500 connections ) and have both general and specific knowledge in IT )( i.e. C , C++ , SQL , UNIX Kernel, ... etc, Data Warehousing, Callidus, Business Objects, ... etc),
I am starting to wonder if there is any possibility that the world is not going to hell and hard working, intelligent resources such as myself can find a job. Not a great job, mind you, just a fricking job !
Please reply and let me know if you have ANY positive news on employment - I am really starting to wonder ....
