The business news of the day has long been telling us that we're in a very slow economic period. Yet I've received multiple job solicitations recently. Not random head-hunters or anything. People I know, who know me relatively well, want me to work for/with/near them.

I'm not sure what to make of it all. But one thing I've learned is that sometimes life is trying to tell you something. And it's best to try and listen. Yet other times, you're reading something into nothing. Hard to tell which is the case here, but I'm leading toward the former.

The really odd part is that I hadn't even touched my resume until the other night when someone asked me to send a copy. So I updated it a bit. No harm done. I don't know what, if anything, will come of all this.

Mine is 1.5 years old. Though I almost updated it a few times. I hesitate because it will be work. I'm to the point where I'll have bump an entire job off the paper. And it was the last job I really enjoyed. :(

I've had a mixed response, and I'm actually looking for a job. I'm not in love with the financial services industry but at least it's paying my bills.

I wish this was my experience. Instead, I've had mediocre play in a year of availability.

I suspect the problem is SF. The few remaining positions are concentrated in the center of the Valley -- that is, San Jose.

And those finance gigs in NYC remain unappealing. But soon, the bank account will decide. :)

I have recently updated my resume, and have been getting calls from head hunters mostly for short-term contracts, like 4-6 months.

I'm currently employed full-time, so I wouldn't leave this job unless something better came along.
