Garrett Mace wants a job as an electrical engineer. This sounds like I’m joking, but I entertained a similar strategy in spring 2002. I didn’t want to offer a substantial reward ( I couldn’t afford it), but a prize of symbolic value, kind of offbeat. I was considering offering a free expensive HAM to anyone who found me a job connection (I was doing this in conjunction with a blanket email with my resume and my favorite 10 links about technical writing and software development. After thinking about it exhaustively, I finally decided that the best 10 links were reward enough, and the idea of dangling a prize seemed to smack of desperation (which was true).
