Hello Sargis!

Postby sreiling » Wed Oct 15, 2014 3:35 am

I just wanted to say, hello, and see how you are doing outside of the release of 0.9.2? I am doing independent work (without being affiliated with a lab) since graduation. I am unable to move, currently, and thus am at a severe disadvantage in gaining post-doc or industry positions in the small-market city in which I reside. Still, I am happy to be doing work within my field, even if it comes inconsistently.

Thank you.

Hello Scott,

Thank you for the message. I'm doing fine outside of the release of 0.9.2. I know how hard it is to find a job when you limit your search location and the field. I have been in the job market recently. It's way better now than it was 4 years ago. Luckily, I'm off the job market currently. I was talking to a recruiter on the phone yesterday and he offered me $500 if I can find him systems administrator or Python programmer. In any case, you can also look for a remote or telecommuting jobs. It takes time, but I'm sure you'll find a suitable position. I have been enjoying the life and stay positive at no matter what life throws at me lately.

Best wishes.

Thank you, Sargis! I will also try to remain positive. It's a bit frustrating because there are post docs available around here, but they are very specific in their requirements. There are also entry industry positions available, but I have been rejected from them, presumably because I am overqualified.

It's a no-win situation, for now. However, I am keeping my skills sharp by doing free side-jobs for people when available, picking up extra hours at my mundane job (to pay off grad school debt), and learning C as well as honing my math skills. In other words, I am not complacent, and will make it! :)

Thanks for the advice on telecommuting jobs! I have applied to a few, to no avail. I think those are in very high demand, but I will keep trying. Take care, and talk to you soon.
