I agree completely. I'm in the same boat -- I started looking for a new position about 2 weeks ago, and at this point I have 1 job offer (for 15k on top of my current salary), 2 second interviews lined up, 1 third interview and a meeting with a recruiter later this week. All of the other work was done by myself through Monster, Dice, etc. If you've got the right skill set, are in the right area, and are open to working in a different type of environment (smaller company mainly), then you're golden. I'm in the Chicago-land area fwiw.
