    I forgot to charge my phone, so I am getting no calls and thus the market is dead

      Because these boards are pretty much dead - same dozen or so people posting, with the odd newcomer actually asking a question.

        The market will start to move once furlough ends because the people creating large amounts of sales leads were the lowest paid.

        There is also an awfully large back-log of people on the bench still and people are too embarrsed to post about it.

        This thread may not have many contributors but i bet its being read by an awful lot of people.

          From the Forum home page.

          There are currently 435 users online. 24 members and 411 guests.

          Most users ever online was 22,243 at 05:13 on 14 September 2021.


          The current user number is a fraction of what it has been in the past, particularly the number of members (ie. people who have actually registered and can post)

          I suspect the "most users ever" is an anomaly though. Perhaps a DoS attack attempt.

              Entropy is NOT what it used to be.
              Inertia, however........................

                The market is really quite good atm. I’m being a bit picky on rates, no discounts and still getting interviews. Plenty of low ballers still out there offering lockdown rates but they’ll figure it out soon.

                  We live in unusual times with WFH and the return to offices and I don't think the market will settle down for a few years.

                    Admitting you have a problem or a concern is a big problem for men, regardless of anon or not. Especially if you were previously very successful. Markets like this one can be a harrowing experience.

                      I work with Scala and have never had so many approaches.

                      Some offering towards £1K per day however that could well be recruiter BS.
