green_dreams: A green picture of a rainy city street at night in the rain. (green rain)
Up early again, but this time because one of the cats was making "I will play with gravity if you don't come feed me, ha-hah" noises, not because I woke up. (Although it has just occurred to me that if this is what woke me up, it means I didn't turn on the humidifier. Dammit.)

Anyway, the job that I got a call about before Christmas didn't pan out, but between that and the one I applied to yesterday morning and the current search (because this is what you do when up before 7 a.m. while waiting for the cats to finish eating, or at least what I do, at least this week), I am wondering if TBS changed something (or changed something back[1]), because the posted salaries are suddenly looking a lot better. I mean, "add on 50% of what I'd expect" better.

I'm reminding myself that (1) there is going to be more competition, and (2) it is possible that I am missing something, but it's a possibly good sign?
[1] As I have mentioned before, although possibly not here; a couple of years back, a ruling went through that government agencies hiring temp workers had to go with the lowest bid that met the job description. Temp agencies promptly started submitting lower bids, and the savings were passed along to you the consumer me the worker.
