The nice thing about getting three calls back within 48 hours is that it's rekindling my confidence a little bit. Even if none of these jobs pan out, at least it shows that i have marketable skills that people want. I'm not as isolated from the scene as i thought i was. I might not have the enterprise skills the banks are looking for, i might not have the Web 2.0 skills the start-ups are looking for, but i do have a reasonable niche somewhere in-between.
I've spent a lot of time over the last two days reading up on the latest technologies to kinda refresh myself and get a wider picture than what i'm getting just via the work i'm currently doing. I know whatever i end up doing i'll be dropped in the deep end as usual (no two IT companies ever do things exactly the same), but i'm getting more comfortable with the idea of a move.
I'm also getting comfortable with the idea of waking up early. I've been up at 7am every day this week, though admittedly i'm not lucid till well after 10. Perhaps i need to start drinking coffee in the morning again.
