Just wanted to say that there are jobs available if you've learned the proper skills. My current contract has been cancelled as of Dec 31,2011. My former employer learned of this when my current employer called to see about training after Jan 1,2011 on the DDC systems that I currently maintain.Before I even began searching for a new job I received a phone call from my former employer and I will start work for him on Jan 9,2012.(I needed a little break for a week). My starting pay will be $4k a year more than I currently make because he knows I will work hard for him,make the company money,(for 12 years every single hour I worked was billable),and have the skills necessary to perform the work.This is all because of the skills I have learned over the years through many classes,seminars,etc. I recognized long ago (1987) that these skills would be in demand for a long time to come and made sure I learned everything I could. The jobs are there if you have the skills to sell.Knowledge is power.
