Office Moose

LJ as Social Networking Tool for a Job Hunt

A few months ago, I posted about my future job prospects at Major Defense Contractor, and since then I've been in a holding pattern while waiting to find out what my fate here is. I haven't gone full bore in job hunt because I was hoping that things would work out in the end, but at the same time I did update the resume and submit my resume for about a half dozen jobs. Unfortunately, it now appears almost certain that I won't have a job here come January. And now, I have a somewhat apropos line from the Karate Kid's Mr. Myagi running through my head:

Walk on road, hm? Walk left side, safe. Walk right side, safe. Walk middle, sooner or later... {makes squish gesture} get squish just like grape. Here, karate, same thing. Either you karate do "yes" or karate do "no." You karate do "guess so,"

So, if any of you know of any openings in editing/publishing or IT asset management fields here in the Washington DC area, please feel free to let me know so I can submit my resume. In the meantime, I'm working harder to avoid being squished just like grape.
