I spent four months blessed with copious free time around the change of the year, before landing my current job hacking on billing systems at a telco. So why is it that after getting not much worthwhile interest from potential employers during that time, I now get three (yes, THREE) employers - not agents, but honest-to-god EMPLOYERS - contact me out of the blue asking if I'm available. They're all big names too. God knows how they got hold of my details, I suppose google must have cached my CV or sumfink.
Pity for them that I'm enjoying my new job.
