I'm a tech recruiter in the IT industry. The market just sucks. There are not a lot of jobs for Technical people. (Web, Admins, Developers back end). Most senior level people expect to take 30 to 40% less money they hay have in the past. It's really tough out there. Right now my business is based on project work and putting together executive program management teams for large scale out sourcing. I also staff Telecom people.
If you’re out of work and are an IT professional with experience only (sorry but I only staff consultants). Feel free to email me a copy of your resume. Something might come up in the future that could work out as fare as a job.
