Three months ago when I wrote (How To) Hire Me, I thought I was up-front about “Hey folks, I need a job!” Given that I’ve received no corporate pings, I have to guess that I was being subtle, which is an odd idea for me—I’ve never thought of myself as the subtle type.
My guess in the past has been that the type of gig I’ve wanted isn’t available, but this time, I know that’s not the case. That’s because (unlike what I predicted in the post linked above), I’ve come across at least three good possibilities just recently:
Evangelist, Safari Technologies at Apple
None of those are perfect (or I’d be applying, not blogging!), but they look darned interesting, and they’re exactly the type of gigs I thought would be insider-only.
My point? Well, I’m not exactly sure… I’ve spent much of the last couple of days updating my résumé (if you want to see it, ask!) and trying to figure out what I want to do next. If you have any ideas, or if you know of other cool gigs, or if you know of someone who could massage one of the above so that it’s even cooler (e.g., travel is a plus, but moving is not), or, or…
Anyhow, this is me, trying to be less subtle, but still completely flexible. So keep me in mind, ok?
