    Not adding anything but happy to chat four hours. Wonder if he's bipolar?

    Either way I've made my mind up so..

    32.
    Thanks for the feedback - but what do you mean by, "doesn't want to take on anything or learn"?

    Frankly, it was a quiet day, and I thought I'd invest some time on this board that I'd only recently joined. I put some time in responding to an interesting post. That's why I'm here.

    I certainly didn't expect to have my mental health evaluated. Does thinking differently worry you?

    And - definitely not Bipolar.

    32?

    I don't care how niche or in demand your skills are, if there isn't the projects around you aren't going to get the work. Anyone sitting there thinking their magic CV is going to see them walking into outside of IR35 contract in the next 12 months is soon in for a shock.

    Well this thread as cheered me up no end...
    As you are all walking out of contracting I was looking to get back in.
    For those of you looking for something else - that was me 5 plus years ago. I did my own thing, provided hosting services, sold software, offered seo work etc etc no middle man. It can be a lonely road with income up and down quicker than loose knickers.

    it's going to be an interesting rest of the year

I could be on the bench 6 months and still earn more than a perm as well so you'll ignore it for 4 or 5 months and when the realization hits perm is the way you've already spent the time on the bench.
    This.

    That's if you can get an interview. HR can have a tendency to view applications from erstwhile contractors with suspicion.
