now is to know somebody inside.

I was under the impression that it's always been that way. Look on the bright side - now you know where to focus your efforts? Perhaps we should not bother with the grinders, but tend to our networks instead.

And perhaps the current trend will backlash. I've been contacted by recruiting firms lately that must have turned up my resume in a buzzword troll and never even looked at it, because the jobs were hilariously unsuitable. I'm usually the first person to extoll my own flexibility, but I'm *not* a system architect! :-) Think of the time they must be wasting.
