(Winks for you Star Wars fans...)
So, a really good opening fell out of the sky here Saturday, and the package with my credentials is already with the right people.
This one is unexpected, but it would be a strong, strong fit. Obviously one's need to have a job causes a certain amount of flexibility... you might take something that's a little less than ideal simply out of desperation. That's not the case here. This is a position that contributes something excellent to the world. And that's something that outweighs any sort of other incentive, really.
I'd like to do something good. Newspapers were good because they used to be the Fourth Estate. Not so much now.
PR was a high-paying fun job, but at the end of the day, you weren't adding a lot to the world karmically. I loved the job but it wasn't exactly solving problems.
This one is a prize. I'm going to be hopeful.
