    Having started my career back in 1992, and seeing this kind of market multiple times over the years, I can't see that it would be any different now to what it's always been - your CV (i.e. technical skills and experience) get you in the door, your interview skills/soft skills/personality gets you the job.
    I think Gigibronze has already replied with roughly what I was thinking. Increased competition and crazy technical tests have become much more common.

      Thanks. I guess that's where our line of work differs as I don't get technical tests for my roles - I may get asked to do a presentation but that's not the same. So for me, my skills/experience gets me in the door, then my personality/soft skills gets me the job (or not).

      Gigi - I guess the only other advice I can give you is take something, even if (relative) low paying. It's easier to get a better job if you're in one already than if you're on the bench. As a hiring manager I'm always more questioning of why someone has been on the bench - in the, if no one else wants to hire this person, then why should I?

        Well that was certainly a gracious acceptance of your kind offer putting yourself at risk for another. Gigi I suspect I now know why your people skills are letting you down.
