Finding a Job

I've been looking for a contract role for 3 months now, after a short holiday, etc, all of a sudden, after at least 8 weeks of nothing, in two days I've had 3 offers, is anybody else finding that the market is picking up a bit?

Yesterday I received a postcard from some company seeking job applicants for various software engineering jobs.

Recently there have been a few commercials on the broadcast radio by a company looking to hire.

The problem with these positions is that they require high level security clearances.
