"IT will come back and it will come back strongly in the next few years," Findlay predicts. "This is because there has been a panic-stricken rush away from development. Large firms have cut down on all but the most essential work that has to be done, so there's a big backlog there. When the dam breaks, there will be plenty going in the industry. So you have to be astute and focused on the areas that will come up."
"Build yourself a website and use it to advertise," Findlay advises. "Don't let anything discourage you. Go for every job where you can reasonably expect a meeting. Never miss an opportunity to learn something new. Purchase journals in your field of interest and download as much from the net as you can. And above all, never give up."

Been there, did that. Looking at the cat and wondering how much meat is on her.
Killed a water moccasin in the back yard yesterday. Anyone know how to cook it?
