Sorry for the lack of posts, but the home office remodel took a bit longer than expected.
The problem with “a place for everything and everything in its place” is it can be a big source of decision fatigue when you’re going through 5 years of accumulated cords, cables, devices, books, office supplies, tchotchkes, furniture, etc.
Even after sorting into trash, sell, and keep piles, there was a lot of stuff to which I had to assign a place in the new layout. Plus building and moving the furniture, building and placing monitor stands, etc., was physically taxing. My older son helped me with two heavy/bulky pieces, but the rest was on me.
Got a contact out of the blue from a company I spoke to last round, but withdrew from when Lumigo made an offer. Seems like it might be an even more senior role than previously. At the time of this writing that call is in 15 minutes.
It should have been yesterday, but I was still putting the finishing touches on my office when I scheduled the time on Calendly. I saw the confirmation from them, but forgot to accept. So when I was supposed to be taking the call, I was cutting tomatoes for a salad. If you’re going to rely on your phone to manage your calendar, you have to make sure you accept the meetings that matter.
Wish me luck!
An Unwise Recruiter
If you remember my Three Unwise Recruiters post, I got yet another recruiter from another agency hitting me up for that same contract, making four recruiters from four agencies.
Thinking about trying a different tactic with some job sites, where the resume just lists years of experience in my targeted fields, some keywords that are meaningful to me, a contact email, my LinkedIn link, my minimum rates (hourly, annually), and NOTHING ELSE. We’ll see.
