and maintainer of:
I have been following jobs.perl.org closely for some time now. I have applied for MANY telecommuting jobs - I have only gotten feedback in a few cases - and I never succeeded on getting a contract.
I have also put my CV in a lot of job databases in Denmark - but not many Perl jobs appear and not many freelance jobs in general.
Finally I have applied for getting accepted in several consulting company databases, this have succeeded to some extent - I have gotten some interviews, but no contracts yet.
Until now networking seem to be the way to go, almost all of my contracts have been through my network.
Maybe I need to find a new strategy or just focus on and extend my network? LinuxForum is coming up and I will be there with a bunch of business cards
