I was chatting with a recruiter the other day, because they always call and ask if I'm interested in working for so and so. I usually say no, but lately with the volumes down (and also my own net PnL), I asked him how the placement in our business is. Supposedly, not very many people are hiring. There's exceptions for superstars, but otherwise, not much hiring. I, like many others in this forum, have been in the same business for several years now. But if our business collapses or slows down completely, where else is there to go, assuming we can develop software? Mobile or internet space? Where would you go? I was scanning the job listings for just software people, and the jobs outside our industry look really horrible. Anything truly exciting happening? I know some of you are part-time traders who actually have real software jobs. What industries are you in? The best of the best will always make money. I get that, but there's something to be said for taking the path of least resistance to money.
