[San-Diego-pm] jobs available, going unfulfilled

I believe many are looking in the wrong places.  On occasion, I will
be contacted about somebody looking to hire for a position, but those
requests are very sporadic, and seldom by the same person twice.  I
don't know how many people have responded to the emails I've
forwarded, so it's possible recruiters may think this is a dry well
(and not come back).  Maybe advertising needs to hit up the recruiters
to inform them that the market is not dry.

Perhaps a new avenue to explore:  What are the recruiters seeing?  Is
there really a shortage of Perl hiring out there, or do they not know
how to find us?
