          A great read, thanks for sharing. I think the topic has been dotted around in various places but the author of that article ties it all together in a very easy to read way.

              Anyone feel things picking up? I don't really get calls because my CV hasn't been reposted for yonks, but my JobServe alerts are looking like their old selves. Reasonable rates, proper job descriptions - feels good.

                  Nope not for me lots of fake job ads around or same role being re-advertised & or roles which they have to advertise due to HR rules about must see external candidates etc etc. Real world IT jobs market feels as weak as it has for many years but it all depends what you do if its a niche skillset then there are always roles around for those. Most dev, support & PM\BA roles are oversaturated with suitable candidates but few genuine roles to go around.

                    I've seen the same roles re-advertised over a two month period by various recruiters. I doubt these type of roles are real. It's likely more the case the recruitment agents sensing an opportunity to generate a sale back with the client when one doesn't genuinely exist. Safe to ignore these and move on.
