    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!

    Not looking for received two calls where recruiters were trying to sell you a permanent position from a contract one. What's that about?

    Good news then.

    "Researchers suggest that the shortage of skilled workers will remain a challenge for the next five years." So another 5 years for contractors to ask for (and get) rate increases and get a chunky warchest.
    lets hope so

    As long as it's booming in Q1 next year when I start looking, that's all I care about.

    Applies to Contracting too with a section of European workers gone/unable to take up new roles without a Visa.

    Market seems booming for both contracts and permie roles.

    Dozens of new jobs coming up everyday on jobserve. Remote opportunities are getting more common.

    I haven't seen the market this busy for a long time. I think it's the last busy period before the Christmas lull.

    It’s suddenly gone nuts over here. Three months on the bench with several calls a day to say nothing more than, “we’ll be in touch if anything comes up,” and then this past week I've had six calls about specific clients, five interviews scheduled, two interviews done, and two offers received. I’ve accepted one which is paying 30% more than my previous best. I haven’t had this much interest in this short a period since the dot com bubble.
