The Return of Andrew’s Job List
A couple of years back, I tried a little experiment, and setup a simple newsletter list designed to connect good people to good jobs.
The idea was driven by the fact that I always seemed to have a steady volume of the two (good people and good jobs) flowing through me as a connection point - and an email list seemed like a good way to make connections more efficiently.
Like a lot of things, it languished as I got busy, and ultimately stopped.
But over the past few weeks, there has been a noticeable uptick in both candidates and companies that have reached out to me asking for connections. So I want to bring the list back.
Here’s how it works.
Even if you’re not looking, feel free to sign up anyways. I promise that your presence on the list, is always held in confidence. Like any other email list, your role is passive, and you can just sit back and view the jobs that come to you in each installment of the newsletter. If you’re interested in something that you see, reach out to me (I’ll never come to you unsolicited), and if it’s a fit, I’ll help make the connection.
If you’re someone that has a role (or roles) you’re looking to fill, send me an email with a link to the job description at firstname dot lastname at Gmail, and I will include it in the next newsletter.
At most, I’ll send to this list once per week or less.
Here’s where I get to play God.
I’m not looking to be the next Monster.com here, so this isn’t about volume. It’s about connecting people that I know and people that I can vouch for, with good jobs at good companies to which I have some connection.
It works based on my reputation and my judgement, so I am going to really leverage the latter to preserve the former. Meaning, if you sign up to the list, and I don’t really know you, I may not really be able to make any meaningful connections if and when you’re interested in something.
Good luck, and see ya’ll out there.
