Links and musings ...


Well, I’m afraid I’m going to subject you all to another round of navel-gazing, as I don’t have anything substantive (well, except for the links below … it is Friday, after all) framed up for this post.  As folks know, I’ve had a lot of consulting/freelance work come through over the past few months, and it was looking like one project was just rolling right on into a full-time job.  I’m not so sure if that’s the case any more.  Without getting into too many details, the company was waiting for the “next round of financing” which would have moved me to full time, supervising a whole group within the organization. While nothing has specifically changed in this, all sorts of other stuff has radically changed, and so I’m back to “fear-based” modes … which is NOT a happy thing.

Despite the fact that I might be brought on full-time for this gig in a matter of weeks, I’m suddenly in a position where I’m back to sending out resumes and pushing out to networking events.  After several months of what looked like a “track to a job” this is very disappointing.

Anyway, “in all the confusion” I did manage to rustle up a dozen good job-search articles off the web via my Twitter reading.  As usual, I hope you find these useful …
