I do contract technical work. My resume is in the files of probably around 1000 technical recruiters.
I have a job (Working for the Carlyle group, and you think that your life is surreal!), so I'm not looking, but the volume of unsolicited contacts is a good indicator of what's going on in the job market.
I had nothing until March, and maybe 1x/week until about mid May.
It's not up to about 5-6x a week, and this is when I'm not actively looking.
People are hiring not, it's not just fudging the Birth/Death Model.
