Jerry, it depends. Most IT savvy companies that hire, actually understand
that people with various projects usually have more experience, variaty of
work, etc..., than someone who has been on the same project, using the same

I wish you all the best of luck. Not sure where you are located, I am in
Michigan, but check out www.ciber.com. They have numerous positions
available at this time.

past two years - TWO. The first company, iVendor, closed their doors

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