Unemployed — Again

That was a good 18 months now back looking for work. That the problem with contacting at some fortune 500 companies. After a big Microsoft case concerning contractors, a lot of big companies only allows one to contract for 18 months then you have to wait six months before one can go back to the same company. Upper management likes it, especially in light of the fine work our  politicians are doing to help us in the middle class (Obamacare , taxing the rich, investing in (temporary) Green Jobs)) —NOT (that another rant for another day) The 18 moth limit to contacting  plays havoc with lab mangers e who have to let go good and  trained technicians.  My manger would love to hire me but there is a hiring freeze due decline of PC sales  losing market share to  smart phone and tablet business.
The silver liner I do have a place to go if nothing pans out in six months. They told me to call. Right now Intel is a chance with opening of the DX1 fab and reopening of FAB 20. Now only if there temp IT firm in India actually read my resume and stop sending me job request for engineers in California and Texas but I live in Oregon.
My goal as always is not how much the government can help me (unemployment food stamps) but how little I need it. The record to break for me is 30 days. I do not count how long but I never been on extended benefits more than 4 weeks. I had more jobs than a 99ers who became the 99%ers
