Jobs 2.0

Matt at 37svn wrote a good piece on the new way to get hired.

I’m one of those people who will be looking for a job in the very near future. Unfortunately, most of the employers that actually need a professional like me wouldn’t be looking at technorati, icerocket, delicious, memetracker or really ANYWHERE in the blogosphere. I hate that word. Regardless…they’re still purely relying on their own in-house metrics and completely missing out on what the rest of the world is saying.

That made me sound like a disgusting marketer wannabe. O_O

So, the question has been burning for a while. What do you want to do when you get out of college?

I wouldn’t mind doing the following things:

  • XHTML/CSS overhauling
  • PHP/MySQL Application Development
  • ColdFusion Application Development
  • Professional Development Training
  • Something completely different, but web related
  • Data Mining/Corporate Knowledge

I’ll be posting a resume soon. Here’s to making that expensive piece of paper go to work.

    Good read..

  2. What? No Ruby on Rails?

    I’d love to work on some cool web apps, design networks, admin networks, or maybe manage a large Microsoft Access database. Something with security would be cool too.
