Yeah, same here, there was a rash of job postings around the turn of
the year, I applied for several, got several responses back, and am
going back for a second interview for one. Plus I had a couple of
calls from people I've worked for or interviewed with before.
On yet another hand, I won't be surprised if I don't see much else to
apply for until the end of March. A lot of places seem to be funding
reqs quarter by quarter.
