So I went to the Job Fair today. I was exceedingly wound up about it last night and this morning and managed the world's fastest total revision of a resume ever I think. I printed out fifteen, enough for about half the employers, as if fifty percent was a reasonable match rate. I didn't need that many of course, I think I handed out three and one of those was to Kelly Services. The employers represented were basically military, law enforcement, health care, and food service. Not a very encouraging pool.
Anyway, onto the nuts part. The part giving me butterflies so big they might as well be fruit bats.
I spotted a listing of job categories with the local radio broadcasters. While I know nothing about, and have no interest in, working the public side of radio, I do know computers so I chatted a bit and they aren't looking right now but I can submit a resume. Pretty standard for the geekier positions around here.
And he actually skimmed it.
And noticed a little bit about working on the Cassini project's mission planning software.
And he's really good at talking people into things.
So around 8:10am I'm going to get a phone call and talk about working on that software for about 10-15 minutes on the radio.
I'm going to die.
