it's braggable

Undertoad 10-06-2018 09:27 AM

Facebook, Google, and Linkedin tried recruiting me this cycle, but they all want people to move to Silicon Valley and I have no interest.

That would be bragging, except I know the game. It's not actually flattering. They have run out of people who voluntarily want to live in Silicon Valley, because it's entirely insane. Now they are going after anyone with a few correct keywords on their resume.

I have some of those keywords, but it doesn't mean I actually qualify for the positions they have. In local interviews, when people have bit on my keywords, they are always disappointed that I haven't done anything with their desired technology in quite some time. I never get any of the keywords jobs. My approach was to interest the recruiters in my keywords and then do a search to find jobs they are also offering which are not so cushy. "No I can't be your Perl programmer, I haven't done it in 20 years. But I can be your technical writer."

And then they wouldn't even hire me to be their technical writer. But at least it got me some decent bites.

My radio plays through the night as a noise mask. This morning I woke up and there was a Beatles song playing. Then, they played another Beatles song. And then another, and another, and another. Five Beatles songs in a row.

I got up and checked the interwebz thinking, maybe, one of the remaining Beatles had died. I guess not.

And now I'm up.

Late Friday afternoon I was trusted to change the address (the A record) for the domain name of the largest potato chip brand in the USA.

Good luck?

Is it on the island, or are you ridding yourself of ferry rides for good?

Wow cool, a car free island away from all the riff-raff.

Undertoad 12-07-2018 05:44 PM

WOW

A remarkable location, hope you get it!
