10+ YEARS


Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

What's up with the Job Market in Denver?

I don't know what the hell is going on, but I feel like it's 2001 all over again. I got 2 calls last week, and 2 calls this week from recruiters or hiring managers. The strange part is that I didn't send them a resume or anything - they called me! I even got a call (last week) from a hiring manager that I submitted my resume to. This is nuts - usually there's nothing. The phone lines have been dead for a quite a few months (if not years). Maybe it's the book? I doubt it - I think it's just a fluke and I should enjoy it while it lasts.

I've asked all of these opportunities to forward me job descriptions so I can post them here, but haven't got anything yet. All local opps - maybe it's a good time to be a Denverite? Or maybe the Java job market is picking up again - let's hope so!

I recently got some out-of-the-blue calls from recruiters "'We have your resume of 2 years ago, we would like to talk". Weird. Let's see where this goes...

i wonder if this has anything to do with it; http://news.com.com/2100-1028_3-5084797.html?tag=nefd_top The "nightmare" is a sharp drop--to 65,000 from 195,000--in the number of H-1B visas granted for skilled foreign professionals. The change, effective Wednesday, is making the business environment tougher for Indian software services companies like MindTree.

Chris: I live in Belgium, so I doubt if the H-1B visas have anything to do with my situation ;-)

Some sort of trend maybe - I was talking with a company out of Evergreen that was doing Java work a while back but I got picked up at CDOT first. Somebody from there just e-mailed me last week to see what my job status was. I pointed them to DJUGJOBS for posting Java related stuff in the Denver Metro area.
