Blog by Sumana Harihareswara, Changeset founder
Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2005 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.
I've now applied for a bit of the jobbery. In the past two hours I've sent out two truthful letters that include the line "I believe I'm a great candidate for this position and for your organization." That gets the spirits up. Thanks, Danny and Rachel!
It's scary how well networking works.
