Hey, if you are a software developer and you are looking for a job, tell me.
If you are a .NET or VB 6.0 or a Win32 developer, I will interview you before I decide to recommend you to a software firm. If you are not a .NET or VB 6.0 or Win32 developer, I am sorry that I can't judge your skills because even though I do have familiarity with other platforms, .NET, VB 6.0 and Win32 are really my areas of expertise. Nevertheless, let me know still, and I will find something for you. If nothing else, I will at least listen to you.
If you know you are talented and hard-working, don't put up with any kind of oppression. I know a few good software firms that understand the importance of developers and will be happy to have a developer like you.
Most places don't understand -- writing code is enormously difficult, and developers deserve an enormous amount of respect. The software development process is self-managing. You are the guy who builds the stuff. I know you deserve a lot more respect that you get. That is why, call me. NOW!
