Journal Journal: Got Connections? Get Rewarded!

Do you know someone personally who works in HR for Google, Microsoft, Apple, or Adobe? Take a look at my résumé. Would you feel comfortable introducing me? If so, after I've seen them, I'll donate $100 to your favorite* open source project. If I accept a job with the company, I'll donate another $100 to the same project.

Why am I doing this? I'm moving back to the US this summer, and I'm targeting the San Francisco area for my relocation. I'm confident in my abilities, but I know that often it's just a question of breaking through the anonymity barrier. If you can get me in the door, I can do the rest.

Why open source? I believe in it, I put my money where my mouth is, and besides, I'm not trying to buy a position at one of these companies, I'd just like a little help getting in the door.

Is there a great company to work for that I haven't considered? Get me in touch, and if I accept a job with them, I'll donate $200 towards your favorite open source project.

*Note: I'm serious, and won't donate to a project created just to funnel cash directly to you
