People come to My Perfect Gig to look for their perfect engineering gig and in this economy you expect people to to be relentless.   Some folks are unemployed and looking and other have a gig but are keeping their eyes open because many employers are making difficult choices and cutting to the bone (see WSJ article on severance pay).  Despite all of the craziness and stress, we saw people pull away a little this week on the pursuit of career perfection.

We had St. Patricks Day and the kickoff of March Madness this week and that led to a slight drop in how many folks visited to the site.  This is great.  This is normal.  Folks should be taking a deep breath to drink some green beer and watch NCAA March Madness.  The last few months have been a wild ride.  In fact, hasn’t there been so much drama since the Presidential election really heated up last summer.  Everybody needed the slice of normalcy brought to us by St. Patty’s Day and NCAA hoops.  This week’s events along with the start of baseball, gardens perking up and a dash of warm air will provoke people to take a deep breadth as they think about their next career move.   Their next perfect gig.

When the engineers are ready, we know there are a lot of opportunities out their for people trying to find their perfect gig.  We have great clients like CACI, Raytheon, Phase Forward and others looking for great engineering talent.   By the way, it is worth noting that I am 15-1 after the first day of March Madness.
