Doing your own startup company seemed to be the thing to do. But it was not to be. So off we go looking for a new job. Interesting thing about time. The more experienced you become, the harder it is to find work.
Here's my favorite: "You sure have done a lot, but you're just too senior". Never taking into account the fact, you may really like doing something that isn't the top dog. So I have come up with the Reverse Peter Principle: "HR will never hire the most experienced people for a position, but instead pick those that are almost good enough". Think about it.
