Subject:Re: query re having your own web page From:Dan Brinegar <vr2link -at- VR2LINK -dot- COM> Date:Mon, 27 Apr 1998 12:00:38 -0700
When I first put up a home page, I got lots of leads... four or five a
month in 1994, f'rinstance, when I was already working... being the only
candidate for the next job who had a web page, and had managed to send the
interviewing manager an email bread-and-butter note got me the job.
These days, I worry that my website is more spambait than anything else [I
know: "waahh!" ]... although I *have* used it from time to time in the
last year to eliminate the truly clueless agencies or employers from ones
who could use my online resume or samples: ya need a clear resume from me?
Want samples? Just go to "aitch-tee-tee-pee..."
My website *does* make it a whole lot easier for me to get my work from my
apartment to the customers' offices without one of us having to drive
across town... get an emergency fix out on a project, and so on.
