I keep seeing hits in my Apache logs for this page; so I ought to consider keeping it a little more current.

Summary

Among my many adventures, I have been seeking work. At this point, I have applied for many hundreds of jobs but been interviewed in person for only three and over the phone for only six. It is quite discouraging to have a return rate of less than four percent. And still have no job.

Job Search

My current strong lead is a position at O1 Communications, a competitive local exchange carrier (CLEC) based in Sacramento. A CLEC is a phone company. Since my most recent experience was at Worldcom (another phone company), this is a natural progression. I've had a first interview and have tentatively scheduled a second interview with thier IT Manager, Matt McGuire. As it turns out, Mr. McGuire also worked for a time at Worldcom.

The Home Front

Home improvements abound; I've now used all my blocks, a major milestone in the retaining wall project. Other than some minor touch-up, the structure of the wall is complete. After rebuilding the fence in the backyard for the third time, I have been working on completing the stain. Inside, Jan has been painting the stairwell and touching up interior walls. It's amazing what a little water-soluble pigment can do.
