Default fuel for the fire

so its been a month almost now. and july has absolutely sucked looking for jobs. there have been 6 new one's posted that I've found. 2 of which were applicable for me. folks on the hiring side i've talked with have said they aren't really moving very fast to hire anyone either even with jobs posted looking for people.

who else is out and looking right now bychance?

What kind of job are you looking for that you can only find 6 postings for?

Time to expand your search, in my opinion.

re-read. 6 "new" post listings this month only.

IT type positions. Anything from tier 1 up thru tier 3 and specialized server admin stuff. I have 120+ apps out right now at various places. salary vs distance is an issue with alot of the ones further out. also, most contract houses all submit apps for the same positions here in SE Michigan so having your resume in with several of the contract houses is not good typically.

i have considered it. I have a few offers for virginia beach/DC area but they dont pay relocation expenses etc... due to home value drops we're upside down too currently. it would mean walking out, which we all know you're supposed to nut up and make it work.

We need to sell more to install more.
But, I can keep that in mind. One always leads to another.
