So I have been pretty unmotivated here lately, been looking for work, doing some contract work for my previous employer, as well as playing WoW. But I am losing motivation pretty quickly the longer I am unemployed. It is not that I am not looking, on a daily basis I am submitting about 5 resumes, have had quite a few phone interviews, and a few in person interviews, the problem is, I am too expensive, even with a $30k drop in salary, for the current market place. It isn’t that people don’t “want” to hire a Sr. .Net Developer, they don’t have the budget to hire them right now.
I have to admit, it is getting a bit tiresome, hopefully soon it will pick up, at least it better, the bank accounts are draining pretty fast.
