Competition is fierce

The job search is going slow, as you might imagine. While there may be a few web development or content management jobs out there, the competition for them is fierce.

One good lead, however, came from USA Swimming. Last week I sent them an email in response to their posted webmaster position. On Friday, I received a reply email from them saying that I was a finalist and made their “candidate pool” — yep, they actually wrote “pool,” although I don’t believe the pun was intentional.

Their email requested me to provide a review of their website. Well, being unemployed and all, I had plenty of time to give them a full review; all of which I posted online in a special section of my site just for them. Check out my review.

Perhaps I went over the top. Then again, perhaps I’ll knock their socks off — aqua socks that is.
