    I just started working at Microsoft, but they just shut the doors and are now in a hiring freeze. There are hiring freezes at all of the bigger companies around here. What area of expertise? I know several technical headhunters around here.

    I'm a generalist. I've been working supporting SAV/SEP for Symantec up until about noon. Previous to that I've worked in admin and troubleshooting capacities while I was in college.

    There's a chance I've yelled at you before!
