Yay! Job offer!
One more job interview tomorrow (who will get back to me the day after) and the hedge fund should know if they’re making an offer by tomorrow night.
This is going to be quite a raise from my last full-time job.
I’m leaving for an interview in Seattle on Thursday (must find a carry-on-sized suitcase in the house) and getting back on Saturday.
Then I’m flying back out to New York on Sunday for a week and half (two more interviews).
I’ll be missing Canadian Thanksgiving (the correct one and the older one) on Monday, but also missing out on helping my parents close the pool. So, a decent trade-off.
Won’t hear back on one of my top choice job prospects until late next week or early the week after
Leaves time to do at least a couple more on-site interviews.
Okay, maybe I’ll be in Seattle later in the week
I probably shouldn’t say things until it is confirmed. Apparently airfare on Monday is expensive, so they may be flying me out to Seattle on Thursday and back on Saturday.
I will probably be in you sometime next week.
For a job in New York… but, still, I’m visiting!
Alright, so it looks like I’ll be flying into Seattle around midday on
Monday (maybe even get picked up by kao and cyro at the airport), interviewing most of the day on Tuesday and flying back home on Wednesday morning Thursday and flying back on Saturday.
When an interviewer keeps saying SEO, it kinda starts sounding like Ezio
Then, you start imagining assassinating Italians and it becomes difficult to listen.
Just turned down G*****
They wanted me out in San Francisco.
I’ve got my heart set on New York, though.
I’ll stay on file for opportunities in NYC that come up in 2013, though.
One of my top choices wants to move forward in the job offer process!
WOO! IN YOUR FACE, UNEMPLOYMENT AND CANADIAN RESIDENCY!
I can’t complain, but I want to. So, I’ll do so, but show some gratitude, as well.
I had three phone interviews today.
I turned down the first one because it really wasn’t what I was looking for. The second went okay.
The third was with a very techy guy who seemed to really like everything I had to say about my experience and the technical aspects of the work I’ve done. He mentioned more than once at the end of the 1 1/4 hour phone call that he was definitely impressed with me.
I tend to have difficulty with big decisions. I don’t want to count my chickens before they hatch, but I may have interesting offers to choose between and interview processes for other interesting positions uncompleted when I get them.
I’m not complaining about the opportunities I may have. I am insanely grateful (I will get back to that in a second), but I just want to make the best decision possible. Maybe I worry too much about it.
Did I mention grateful? Two of the three opportunities I am most interested in came because YOU reblogged my hire me post. More than that, I don’t think I’d have a tenth of the interest from employers in New York if it weren’t for Missing e users, feature suggesters and ambassadors.
If you had asked me when I wrote my first Greasemonkey script for replying to replies, I probably would have told you that all I expected to get out of it was to make a few of my dash friends a bit happier.
Now, I like to think I’m making at least tens of thousands of Tumblr users (maybe more, depending on what you believe download counts mean) a little happier, and the influx of opportunities to pursue a great job in a great city is some fantastic icing on the cake.
Or, rather, whipped cream on the pie, because I prefer pie.
Interviewing again in New York on Friday (most likely)
With the hedge fund company.
I’ll probably stay longer and miss Jewish New Year with the family.
See you again soon, New York.
I did well in the follow-up phone interview earlier this week. Now they’ll check my references and take everything to a hiring committee or two.
I have another phone screen with a mobile/web app development startup in an hour, and tomorrow I think I’m scheduling an on-site interview with the techy hedge fund company (which seems like another place I’d really like).
My name is Jeremy Cutler. I’m looking to relocate to New York, where I’m searching for a web application front-end developer job!
Why Would I Make A Great Addition To Your Development Team?
I am passionate about developing software and web applications for high-level functionality and low-level performance with a strong focus on usability. My professional and personal endeavours are often marked by a great attention to detail that complements cohesive integration of larger scale projects.
I studied Computer Engineering at both the Bachelor’s and Master’s levels and have since been able to leverage a wide variety of skills in both computer software and hardware in my work as a compiler developer at IBM and as a freelance web application designer and developer of a wildly popular open-source multi-platform browser extension, Missing e.
I love opportunities to take advantage of my experience with coding at the lowest levels of computer technology and developing front-end interfaces. My thirst for knowledge and new skills will, no doubt, enable me to make quite a difference wherever my career takes me!
Find Me On Other Sites
This is going fairly well, actually. I’m pleasantly surprised!
- Another phone interview with G***** yesterday.
- Just got off the phone with a technical-minded hedge fund in SoHo.
- Have another call in an hour with a (the) major professional networking site for their office in the ESB.
- Scheduling a call for later this week with a start-up in TriBeCa with a two-digit number for a name that does mobile and web application work.
- Still a few other applications I haven’t heard back from yet.
Thanks for reblogging my Hire Me post, folks. It seems to be helping!
