Doug, is there a good blog keeping tabs on the musical chairs of int'l development consultancies' groups these days? I have enough trouble staying on top of the fallout of Booz Allen's private/government bifurcation last year, let alone figuring out which BE group you were a part of and who picked it up, that I'd be interested in getting a decent daily or weekly read that would be a good intel source or backgrounder on movements in the industry.

Mind you, my own independent association with BE ended about three years ago, but I'm still interested in where the *people* go...

Oh, and by the way, don't sweat the status of "unemployed". You're bound to find something good before too long, and besides, you will hardly be auditioning in circles in which a few months' gap will matter to anyone with a brain.

Plus, you were laid off...not "fired".

If there's anything I can do to help, let me know. Can't say that I have much in the way of connections as far as international development, but I have been working with a couple of overseas consultancies.


Also freelancing! And my biggest client decided to take the project back in-house at the end of last year, whee! There was legacy work from that until just recently, but now it's pretty much sales mode...

Mike Ralls

Good luck to you. I'm sure you'll find something, the good people always do.

Dennis Brennan

I'd offer to make some calls for you, if I thought you were interested in law firm work in Philadelphia, but nobody hereabouts is hiring. (My firm laid off a handful; many of the other medium-sized to large Philly firms have wielded even more axe than that; and there was one high-profile law firm dissolution). But if you want me to try anyway, let me know.

James Bodi

Stupid malfunctioning economy.

I'm afraid I can't think of any useful links that I have, and my only idea - sovereign risk insurance, which I may have mentioned before - is a good couple of knight's moves from what you do now.

Good luck!

Gavin Weaire

Best of luck with the difficult situation.
