Just thought I'd add my job finding experience (Seattle version) to the

I've got a good job right now, but one of my long term options included
going from captive to contractor right about now. (I've got seven years
experience, five post TW certificate, including a lot of developer/admin
documentation.) I figured I'd be a good catch.

So I decided to float my resume out there, maybe have some conversations
with a couple of recruiters and see what kind of jobs I could expect.
Imagine my surprise when the only response I got was a "we'll call you if a
job comes up."

So naturally I called them. (I didn't want to be put up for jobs, I just
wanted to learn more about the agency.) The assistant I talked to was very
nice, but she stated they're getting a *lot* of resumes from people with
about five years experience. And my seven years and tech background
apparently raise no bells or whistles at all.
