Between a heavy Coursera load (R, computer security, GIS) and special project at work I’ve been working 12+/7 since… Labor Day? Often 14+. It’s not as bad as it sounds since there’s a lot of variety with the Coursera classes.
Hence no posting. I have quite a bit in-progress but haven’t had time to really dig into any of them.
Anyway, I get a lot of calls and email from recruiters. It’s nice to be wanted, less so to be pestered when it feels like the recruiter is just trying to meet some body count. (Yes, I’m sure it’s a lovely town. But there’s only a handful of potential employers and anyone with experience in this industry knows that the most stable job can disappear without warning and you don’t want to be stuck in a small town with limited job opportunities and a lot of people desperate for work.)
Last night was a new low though. I’m dreaming I’m at work (well, “work”) and I get a phone call. From a recruiter. Even if I want to talk I can’t because it’s an open office and everyone else has turned towards me.
In the dream it was annoying. The morning after I have to laugh.
