Every day this week I have received an e-mail and phone call from Bay Area technology companies looking for a technical product manager. Some companies I have never heard of, others have a market capitalization in the billions. I would love to say they heard of me through my weblog, but most found me on Monster or some similar service. These companies just signed some big deals, more are coming, and they need to hire people quickly to support the new business.
The Bay Area economy is picking up and many companies just can’t hire fast enough. Referral bonuses are back. Employees are less afraid of being laid-off. Interesting times ahead.
