Things are not what they seem - was RE: [xml-dev] Urgently need areality check on the job market for XML development

I did the same thing and I uploaded my resume.


But as I started checking many of the positions are reposts of the same position and a very high number of the positions are actually closed.  And many recruiters say companies are currently putting things on hold.


I have gotten negative response for the number of jobs I have had in the past two years – TWO.  The first company, iVendor, closed their doors and the second company is cutting back so they don’t have to.  Besides a little consulting to get experience, I stayed at the same place for over 13 years.   If I look like a job hopper to HR, I want to drink what they are drinking….


The job market is really depressing but then I watch the news and feel very lucky.
