SOGrady notes that a number of the large bellweathers in Tech are announcing hiring. [here]
I have noticed that, after a 3 year absence, my inbox is seeing slow trickle of recruiters, mainly those looking for low-hanging fruit in tech-support and junior development positions. *YAWN*
If recruiters actually took the time to read my resume, instead of the work and education experience areas, they might notice that I am so far from what they want that asking me if I am interested in a position like that lowers their company’s brand in my opinion.
I would love to see some quality enquiries; not because I want a new job, but because it shows me that someone took the time to find out about me before contacting me.
