I haven't had any [img]/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] Why doesn't anyone want me? Lol, I actually had about 3 calls over the summer months last year, but nothing since around September. That's it! I'm moving to the UK.
9 out of 10 people I prove wrong agree that I'm right. The other person is my wife.
I've had emails coming about one every two weeks since December from recruiters looking to hire in places I don't want to move to, or for jobs that I don't even know why they think I am qualified (I certainly didn't). Does that count?
Nothing learns better than experience.
"So as I struggle with this issue I am confronted with the reality that noting is perfect."
I've had 8 interviews in the last two days. 7 were phone and 5 with the same company. That one looks good. Prior to the last 2 weeks or so I hadn't even gotten an acknowledgement that anyone was receiving my resume. I've been fishing for 2 months now.
Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.

I was on the market for a new contracting role for just over 3 months tail end of last year, I've had to get a role further away from home which is too far to commute to on a daily basis so I'm staying away in the week now (for ref I'm talking UK based here), 1st time I've had to do that since turning to contracting over 6 years ago
a few colleagues have been in a similar position, all of us with a good number of years under our belts and good experience in the testing realm, 4 months to get a new role appears to be the norm at the moment, hopefully that is getting better tho
speaking to some of the agents the amount of people they're getting applying for roles is way above the numbers they were getting a couple of years ago, you have to make sure your tailoring your cv for the role and get in early with the application posting and follow it up by contacting the agents
