Job Search

I was on the road and got stuck in the middle of a storm. I pulled over and decided to wait it out until the road conditions got better. While I was waiting, I was thinking about my job search strategy.

I realized that I was doing way too much busy work and not enough substance. There’s a lot of job postings out there and after a while, they all start to look the same.

So, I’ve decided that I’m going to be “more intentional” and go deep. I’m going to spend a lot more time researching the company, their product/services, and culture. This time around, I shall optimize for quality rather than quantity.

Impostor syndrome abound, “Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!”
