Not sure why. Glad they're around though. I've interviewed for 3 different jobs within the past 2-3 weeks and I've received offers for all of them. I also saw my competition each time.

I am glad that worked out for you to not have to do an extensive search. What you say is true enough, if you don't job seek for a good period of time (several years or more) you may lose what few job-hunting skills you thought you might have once had. I think it is a good idea for nearly all of us to stay in practice for job hunting.

I often recommend job seekers going to job networking functions to learn more about marketing themselves, especially if they suddenly find themselves without work and cannot land another job relatively quickly.

That's outstanding! Do you credit your resume and qualifications? Interviewing skills? Both?
