Sing That Fakey Bot Song, Bot Boy

I remember a time where old, crickety shops adorned the end of strip malls that housed a hundred a more electronic parts, some divided into sections. Some areas were composed of gently used electronics that were for sale, and another area that was exclusively for devices that needed repair.

The Job Search Culture; Yes, Santa Claus Is Real

For many years, I maintained a blog that was designed to document the intricate details of my job search. Having experienced the job search in both the antiquated and the digital realm provided stark differences in recruiting practices. It’s interesting how we have evolved from the good old days of the classified section of the… Continue reading The Job Search Culture; Yes, Santa Claus Is Real
