But I find this to be true for *any* job. I recently changed careers
to technical writing, and I've been employed for 4 out of past 8
months. Even though this is all new to me, I get an average of one
job lead a week from my contacts, so I constantly have stuff out there
that I'm waiting to hear about. I'm looking for either contract or
permanent work. I've found that people who talk you up to other people
are your best resource. Admittedly, I'm still unemployed, but I find
myself not really worried or depressed about it because I still keep
getting little nibbles, and frankly, since I still have income from my
last contract, I'm not marketing myself as strongly as I could.
