Not much interesting in this issue.

So far, just a link to a C interpreter: Ch. Free download of the standard edition.

Also, nice short article on dealing with headhunters by Scott Kariya.

  • Insist that a recruiter get your permission before altering your resumé.
  • Ask the headhunter what type of relationship he has with the hiring company.
  • Make sure the headhunter knows how much compensation you're seeking.
  • Don't let yourself be badgered into a job interview you don't want.
  • be cautious about divulging what you found out about a job in an interview to the headhunter. They might use the information to give subsequent clients a better shot at the job than you got.

  • Last post

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

  • Unemployed

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

  • Home from the cruise, off to Sunnyvale

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
