Consider work outside of I.T.
There is plenty of I.T. work going on, but you'll find more and
more software moving offshore just like manufacturing these days,
that and inexpensive programmers moving inshore.
Ireland a prime example.
Consider looking at a big established firm rather than a get-rich-
quick startup, getting a more general list of skills helps too.
Working for an RBOC isn't sexy, but they've proven to be damned
Part of financial planning is trying not to make the same mistakes
Survival of the fittest doesn't mean the strongest, or the
smartest, it's those who best adapt to change.
