I myself have now been out of work for three months (for the record I've been working in some way or another without a long break since I was 13!). The market is absolutely dire, I know of another out of work for the pat six months. Luckily, I've just secured a three month assignment (hopefully with lots of extensions). The down side however is that rates are way down and with the new government tax regime here in the UK, things are tough... But still, a little money, is better than none!

In 23 years in the midrange arena (18 of them as a contractor), the longest I had ever gone without a contract was one day. At the beginning of this year, I was without a contract for two MONTHS, and know of two other capable contractors who were in the same boat during that period. Does anyone think this is a temporary slump in the market, or is this the death of the RPG contract market? Bob Lancaster
