As the title goes I badly miss those boom days... wish and hope the recession comes to an end quickly. I used to have 10 to 15 mails from consultants per day with the pay package range mentioned in many of those mails These days I hardly get to see 5 mails per week.
Are you feeling unappreciated?
I miss the ability to walk out on one job and walk into another with a substantial boost in pay and a hiring bonus. I think I've topped out as far as salary is concerned (my current position needed a specific skill set immediately, so I negotiated from a good position), plus with the recession salaries are backtracking some.
