Admin: Light posting explained
Well, as regular readers know, I'm on the job hunt. Sadly it is distracting me from things like blogging. I have several posts in mind, but by the time I get the time to write them up here, several will be too old to bother with.
I received an unsolicited email from a headhunter outfit for a contract/job opening. I think this may be the first one I've received that is for a 'real' job, and NOT for selling insurance and the like. In fact, that is what I've spent most of the day doing - trying to compose a decent cover letter. I have no problem writing until it comes to things like cover letters. I never know how badly to strain my arm slapping myself on the back while trying to cover all of the points raised in the job description.
The job sounds like something I'd love to do, and the end product might actually help save lives. That would be cool, as opposed to the other job I applied for yesterday - tax examiner for the IRS. Not that I have a problem with the IRS, it's just that the job I applied for basically consists of repetitive work and requires attention to detail, but no real problem solving or anything intellectually engaging.
I might try to get a substantive post in later tonight. Otherwise, it will probably be tomorrow.
