I'm job hunting again

[ #6869 ]

The perl foundation grant has run its course, so now it's time to find alternate funding. We got a lot of good work done in the past six months, and I'm happy with the progress that we've made. More needs doing, of course, but lots has been done.

Unfortunately that means I get to do the whole job hunt thing, as my family's grown accustomed to eating and suchlike things. Committments are making it tough--I've promised, as part of the perl 6 effort, to do the Zurich session, as well as doing the OS X tutorial. (And unlike OSCON, Ora's OS X conference doesn't do honoraria for tutorial sessions) That sucks time, as well as cash. (As ETH isn't paying for the Zurich trip, nor for any YAPC stuff after if I do that, and it's two weeks I can't work)

So, it's hunting time. Consulting, training, freelancing, and maybe telecommuting. Whee, fun, since it's me and a half-million other unemployed computer folks. If anyone has any really odd stuff they need done... (As I do C, perl, SQL, and all manner of bizarre things) drop me a note, please

    If you aren't already on the jobs@perl.org mailing list
       see lists.perl.org
    or checking the website, then you might want to do that.

    Not only will you see job offers (some of which are
    telecomute, but most of which will be local out-of-area
    positions), but you'll also see the odd short-term contract
    need.

    If nothing else, the continual stream of postings can keep
    you refreshed as to the sorts of skills folks are hiring
    for, which can help when crafting resumes and inteviewing.

    Best of luck :)

    I'll be in your shoes a year from now when the wife and I
    move to Portland.
