Hi,
I am highly educated. I have Bachelor of Computer Science, Bachelor of Microbiology, Medical Technologist, PMP degree.

I was working for big company as Java Developer from 2000-2004. Due to family responsiblities and emergencies, i had to quite job. I was home till 2008. Then i got job as Project Manager in IT and i also started startup IT website design company. But due to budget cuts, i got laid off in first quarter of 2009 from Job. I was getting few website design and SEO project for my IT company. But last three months no projects at all. Again, due to family responsibilities i have to be home for next 4 months. I am very hard working person. I want to get some projects which i can managed from home. But i am not getting. I am so depressed:banghead: . I don't know what to do.

I am desperately looking for remote IT management jobs i can from home. But i don't know any resources. Does anyone knows?

Thank You,
Angela

Yeah, its going to be tough. In a period of layoffs, the remote and the contractors tend to be the first to go. After all, it is easier to get rid of people when you don't see them every day, and / or whose employment is supposed to be time bounded anyway.

I would actually be interested in looking into the mind of managers, in learning how they rationalize getting rid of certain people that are "easier" to get rid of, than for the good of the company.

Henry

Job market seems to be improving.. well according to some newspaper reports.

It would be a good idea to improve your technical skills or learn new skills etc; assuming you do technical work and not managerial work alone.

Flex is a good new area to learn; especially for java developers; as the programming language(ActionScript) it uses is similar to java.

It wasn't an answer as such. I passed on some lead/contact details and it wouldn't have been appropriate to publish them publicly.
 
So there I was, trapped in the jungle. And at the last minute, I was saved by this tiny ad:
