Finally got this one. It took me 4 months…after a while I started applying to every place I could, and got very few responses. I was spending a couple hours a day searching jobs.
Then one day, I got a call from someone who saw my resume on Monster.com. $65,000/year as a software engineer, and I start Monday. I could have spent no time searching at all, the right job just came to me! Weird.
How many friends do I have to make before I can call this one done? Technically, I guess two, just so it will be a plural “friends.” So one down, one to go – thanks, craigslist.
In case anyone’s interested, I keep a blog about my mission to go from extreme shyness to…the opposite of that. It’s been my sole mission in life for the last 3 months, and I’ve managed to make some progress.
