How critical is the income right now? If your primary goal is to get
yourself back into the field and put some recent experience on your CV, you
might consider going after some of those absurdly underpaid $15-$20/hr
contract listings that we often post grumbly messages about. I hate the
fact that these exist, but since they're not going to go away perhaps they
can be useful for *something*.
