Dropped in on a recruiter I contacted in Dec and visited in Jan then never heard from again. We discussed that I was still in the system and how the rates in Knoxville for certain skills like DBA work have plummeted. So a dba making $85k 3 years ago might only get $55k today.

I don’t completely buy that picture but instead of writing them off I encouraged them to market me in different ways and changed my salary expectations.
