I saw this today, advertising for a pretty impressive list of skills
for £175/day. I think the company were taking the piss. I've seen other
things on stupid money over the last few weeks too.
Personally, I haven't seen any drop in the number of phone calls and
emails that I'm getting. And I've just started another contract at 10%
more than the previous one.
And, bizarrely, I'm getting lots of enquiries about running training
courses. I guess that companies want to ensure they're getting the most
out of their employees.
