    [Serious Post. Will return to regularly scheduled Linkadessen forthwith.]

    A fair number of SF people are friends of mine on Facebook. Recently I made an update about a happy event in my life. Of all the different groupings of friends that I have, it was SF people who were the most supportive. By quite a large margin. This really is a cool community to be a part of.

    I'm just going to speak fact of truth here: Facebook is the work of the debil, no two ways about it.

    It makes me hibbeldy-gibbeldy to see L'Inc posting using normal diction. It brings a chill to my spine, so to speak.

    I've been trolling this dunce from Chicago on Reddit who thinks he's some hot shot economist. It's so funny watching him get his panties in a bunch over what's obviously complete gibberish on my part.

    Little does he know that my last name is Yellen and I happen to be the Fed Chair.

    :happy:

    After 5-6 weeks of non-responses and shitty auto-generated rejection letters, I had three calls in 24 hours. One is with a recruiter who I think will do a good job in helping me find something - he has something that sounds interesting, but it would probably be a hard sell to the company (my career has been in high tech and this job would be in construction equipment).

    So @MrG , hang in there.

    Yeahhhh buddy!

    An ex-colleague from my current employer recently left for a huge promotion at a different company. He's actually the same guy I networked with who got me my role right now.

    Anyway, he reached out to me saying he wants to bring me on as his right hand man. The offer he gave was a little low unfortunately so I told him straight up I'd need X title and Y pay to move. He met me halfway and said the only way to get me to Y was to interview with his bosses and impress them enough to secure more budget for the role.

    I sent him my resume on Monday so he could refer me internally. Let's see what happens.

    Some guy who was on my team less than me and was a complete putz just left to go to a vendor as a marketing director. I couldn't believe it. Part of it makes sense now seeing one project he was pushing would help said vendor (but wasn't good for us).

    I bet he wants to refer you internally. I would wish you luck, but I know you have a lot of experience with internal reviews.

    lol yeah there was a senior guy I briefly worked with who was a complete dunce and didn't display any care or ownership over his products. Dude would just punt anything to a direct and had no knowledge over his products.

    He got a job at a top top top tech firm. Everyone who found out was flabbergasted.

    I'm still in shock.

    Thanks brah. It is indeed an internal candidate referral.

    So you'd be doing what his right hand usually does?
