It's great to see the list back and alive again so I'll my add my thanks to Matt for the resurrection! Here's a repost of something I tried to send a couple of weeks ago in case anyone can help. For the first time in many many years I am finding current work coming to an end without anything immediately lining up to fill the void. I'm very out of date in what the current best practice is in finding new projects, I assume my paper CV from 2001 won't be much use any more. I've added some stuff to my previously dormant LinkedIn profile (https://www.linkedin.com/in/philip-coombes/) and knocked up a basic resume site (https://www.philipcoombes.uk/) but I'm not sure what would be a good idea to do next. I know there are lots of 'jobs' sites out there but I'm not sure which offer quality positions rather than just encourage lowest bidder type activity. Ideally something with a bit more of a local focus might be nice as well. If anyone has any suggestions about how to go about spreading the word and/or promoting myself I'd be very interested to hear. In case it makes any difference I'm after contract/freelance stuff either commutable from BS34 or remote though I'm happy to go further for meetings and such like. Lately I mostly do full stack web dev (ReactJS/PHP/MySQL etc) but also have a lot of experience in C/C++ (including embedded), one or the other would do, I doubt there's much call for both at once. Thanks in advance for any tips. Phil
