Almost there...

Thursday, January 04, 2001

Just for the heck of it, I was browsing Monster. I have an agent which collects training positions in the Bay Area. Looking through the current postings, I noticed a company searching for a DSL trainer. I'd be willing to bet $20 that this is Covad and that the position would be instructing from the training materials I helped create for them a couple of months ago.

It's kind of ironic on a couple of fronts. First, they're looking for someone who has experience doing all of these things. I feel like I could teach that class in a heartbeat, but I've never even seen a loop test run. Still, I spent a month immersed in the material and I know it pretty darned well. Second, I know I'd be comfortable teaching using their materials since there's already so much of my style in the materials. I'd be interested to contact the recruiter just to confirm that it really is Covad.

On the other hand, even if it was, would I want to work for a company that just laid off 400 employees and whose stock has gone from the mid30s to $1 5/8 a share? I don't think so!
