Redmond Salaries Mean What They Mean

Okay, okay. I keep telling you about those numbers that are coming soon. Well, soon is here and now you can read it for yourself. It's still good to be an IT professional, what with the crazy recession. The numbers say so, right?

I won't say exactly what's so good about those numbers, because, hey, I like getting the clicks on the story. Already, though, I've heard from some readers who tell me that it's been incredibly difficult to rejoin the workforce because of a lack of jobs, let alone even think about what salaries IT people made last year. Yes, it's tough for lots of folks out there, even IT pros. I hear ya. So, essentially what I'm hearing from readers, especially those who have been on the dole, is this: Salaries are nice, if you can keep one.

I'd like to hear from readers who still come to this site for info, even though they might be out of work. What are you doing in between IT jobs to keep your spirits up or to keep busy and continue staying abreast of technology? Are you doing volunteer work? Are you continuing to study up for certifications? Are you completing some pet projects that involve technology? Let's hear it. And write to me if you'd rather share it anonymously.
