    It seems to be picking up. Getting lots of email approaches and occasional calls. The emails even show evidence that the sender has read my CV.

      More than they do for me, lazy feckers. The idiots don't even bother to read my LI profile for the role that I am of course, "a perfect fit" for.

      I lost it a bit yesterday:

      "Where on my profile, that you obviously couldn't be bothered to read, does it say I've used or listed as a skill: Tableau?"

      He had a negative bluety on a quackhandle and was quadraspazzed on a lifeglug.

      I look forward to your all knowing and likely sarcastic and unhelpful reply.

        I'm not sure why you would limit yourself to a specific product unless you're just a coder.

              You should be proud that the Agent has more confidence in you than you have about yourself . Tableau easy to learn. One weekend is more than enough to bluff our way!

                Contract finished this week, was quite surprised by the amount of calls I got back yesterday after putting an updated CV on jobserve - very different from the market 12 months ago!

                  And if the client has the money for a Tableau license….

                      No pressure then!

                      Been looking for three weeks and there does seem to be the roles around and had a couple of phone calls but no interviews. Back in ye olde day there was more or less a pyramid of finding suitable roles and putting yourself forward of which some lead to talking to an agent, which some led to interviews and then you repeated the exercise until you had a contract.

                      When i have looked over the last few years it was all quiet up to the point someone got in touch about a contract and you started the next week with minimum fuss.
