Position Information I am a long time consultant and a ...

  1. 1. Position Information I am a long time consultant and a Microsoft recognized expert with .Net, Service Oriented Architecture, and XML, so I am not looking for full time employee positions. New Jersey or telecommuting consulting positions only, please. Corp-to-Corp contracts only, no W2. My rate is $100/hour for work in NJ. I am a local .Net community leader and I’ve been in this business for a long time, so I know what the real going rates for experience enterprise .Net developers. Unfortunately, I’ve found that there are lots of recruiters that just do key word searches and just spam the results of these queries with email and phone calls and never actually read the resume. I wrote a blog post “Recruiter Etiquette - Resume Trawling” detailing the problems developers are running into when posting their resumes on various job sites. In order to filter out all that senseless email, you will have to do a little work to get in touch with me (don’t worry it will not be hard). Go to my site (listed below), and contact me via my contact me page (it is listed on the main page). Hopefully, you will also spend some time browsing the site, which should also help you get a better idea of my background and skills. .Net Solutions Consultant Architect ◊ Senior Developer ◊ XML Expert ◊ Team Lead ◊ SQL Server Developer ◊ Standards Compliant Website Designer ◊ Recognized Microsoft Influencer A Microsoft Most Valuable Professional, for XML, with over seven years of experience architecting multi-tiered and service oriented .Net and SQL Server applications.
