I agree, cold contracts are still hard to get.
I just opened up a job for a manager and got oooodles of applications.
We have over 250 engineers on the streets in corvallis from HP, roguewave,
electroglass and Agilent letting people go.
I know lots of these folks are looking in the portland market too.
I wonder if anyone is being successful with niche ecommerce web sites
as a way to generate revenue.
