Well, I am in the hunt for gainful employment once more. Could be tricky with summer looming, as I would need to find camps or other recreational activities to occupy the younger household staff right about now, and without the promise of a way to pay for it, I daren’t.
So perhaps something flexible/part-time will turn up.
Google has some openings locally (Kirkland, closer than Mountain View) and I put in for one. They have a very interesting survey you need to fill out before your application is accepted. Wish I had saved a copy. Some of it was unknowable (my GPA was forgettable and so I did just that) while some other other stuff was personality-based (are you lazy? do you procrastinate? what is your optimal workgroup size? do you hold a world record?)
Interesting to see what comes of it, if anything. I would prefer a part-time gig on this side of the lake, but for the GOOG, I am willing to explore my options.
Craigslist is far more interesting to scan than the old newspaper ads. I wonder if the papers realize how different the experience is? There’s a whole world beyond word counts and cryptic abbr’ns.
