    That can only be a good and positive thing if it's to be taken seriously:)

    Thing is, it shouldn't be taken seriously. The company making the press release has a vested interest in making people believe the IT contracting market is picking up. It's no more reliable than Starbucks commissioning a survey that shows people like coffee.

    The contracting market for top-tier contractors has never really tailed off (apart from in the government sector) - as the skills they have will always be in demand. For 'mid-tier' and below, the situation is still dire, largely because so many organisations that would have employed them have gone to the wall, or been cut back to the bone, or lowered their rates to ridiculous levels. I'm glad I made the decision to switch back to perm.
