We all know that demand for RIA and Flex jobs in America and the England have remained high, despite the recession. But that’s little comfort to Flex experts who live elsewhere in the world. (Badu and Marin, for example).
It’s ironic. Within their borders, America and the England are desperate for skilled Flex/ActionScript experts. But all they have to do reach beyond those borders.
I’ve tried applying for jobs in America. Most don’t write back. One sent me a short email, reminding me that I was a British citizen, not an American. The streets of London may be paved with gold – but I’ve no desire to return to England.
I’ve been happy working around Asia. And often busy. I’d lined up two jobs over the next few months.
But suddenly both turned out to be mirages. Now I’ve noticed fewer opportunities. And more local skilled candidates chasing those opportunities than there were previously. The locals are cheaper than I am.
So I’ve been searching the internet for opportunities. In Asia, elsewhere, in industry, and in universities.
