Corey, nice post; I'll give it a shot. Sure as hell can't hurt at this point. I've great skills/experience that seem to be in demand but I'm not having much luck. I don't know if it's my age or the fact I took some months off to upgrade skills, (and partly due to US federal shut-down). Probably a combo of both.
Best of luck Mark - I've also noticed that sometimes hiring tends to pick up at different times of the year too, so that could be a contributing factor.
