Thanks Chris, I recall that when we were chatting last year you mentioned that.



Because of the Microsoft lawsuit, WA is really tight on using them to work on contracts. In CA is was very easy for me to work as my own business.

I used to get client referrals too from Seattle when I first moved to CA but a lot of the people who hired me have died off...



I feel like I am starting over again in a way. It isn't true but it feels that way this week. ð

I'm in Gene's camp, although it's OK by me if me clients are across the continent.



But I'm *so* done with recruiters, with only two NorCal-based people ever actually helping me to get a gig. The rest were all playing the numbers and didn't give two hoots about placing me somewhere I really fit. As it happened, those two recruiters were anomalies within their own firms, in that they actually took the time to get to know me a bit. Attempting to work with others in those same firms proved fruitless.



Likewise, today I don't waste my time with packagers. I find my own assignments or assignments find me. Like M&Ms, there's "no chocolate mess."
