Job Search and Summer School

Now that I’ve been unemployed for over a week, I found that looking for a job is actually more work than actually working. It’s quite a paradox. I’ve applied to quite a few automotive businesses along with a few other places. So far I’ve had two offers.

I went to the VEC on Monday or Tuesday, and found a few offers, and follow up on them. I got a letter from them just now. Apparently they have an automated search system, and they sen tme information for a job! Pretty cool.

I was so close to landing a a job at Canonical as a webmaster. I was a getting glazy-eyed until I came across:

Working knowledge of Python.

Not cool. I was so close! I wanted to learn Python over a year ago, but I ended up pushing it aside. Though the job will most likely be filled soon by some hillbilly or crazed nutcase (joke πŸ˜‰ ), I’m adding a book on learning Python to my summer reading list. Python is a really good language to learn (so I’ve heard) and Zope, a founding
sponsor of Python, is nearby. Hey, you never know. πŸ™‚

Along with my upcoming self-taught Python course, the summer semester has started at Germanna. I’m taking two distance learning courses, so I’m still free to have a vacation.

Anyway, that’s my current situation. It’s a good thing that I’ve got somebody on my side, or else I’d be done with. πŸ˜€
