Round 5

Posted on May 14th, 2006

Co-op term number 5. I said to myself that I’m going to go for a big job this time around, and I think that I was a bit overconfident; a lot of jobs at Google, Sun, VMWare, etc. are awfully intensive and, having switched out of Software Engineering, I don’t think I have the necessary coursework to comfortably qualify for them. I suppose that I could just apply and hope for a lucky break, but then I’d have to stumble through an interview. Argh.

For the first round, I think that I’m applying to some 22 jobs. Only one of them in is Canada. All of the rest are scattered across the United States, England, and even Japan! My apologies to those who were hoping for me to kick around Waterloo… I don’t think that’s going to happen anymore.

Some of the jobs are with monstrous companies (AOL, Microsoft, Morgan Stanley, NVIDIA, to name a few), which would do my resume a lot of good. (And on that note, I should take this time to encourage a good friend of mine who is working at a big company to push some favourable buttons! :D) It’s been a while since I had a nice heavy name added to my resume and now would be pretty sweet!

I’ll be sure to keep posting as things progress. Catch ya later!

    Fine, I’ll poke around and see what I can do. I’ll let you know what I come up with. 🙂

    hey!!! that is so exciting about your co-op job opportunities. I think you would love to go somewhere different, and as much as I would love for you to be in Waterloo where I hope to visit often next year, a MUCH bigger part of me wants you to have that experience abroad in a fresh new place! DO IT! Cant wait to hear how it all pans out bro.
