New Job

16 Sep

I have two weeks left before I finish up at my current work.

I’ve spent the last few days checking out the local employment environment. It doesn’t look great. I really love my current work and thinking of doing other work (available in Adelaide) is slightly depressing.

Looking further afield, it seems as though I need to put a lot more effort into GitHub and StackOverflow.

Current plan is to:

  • Do a budget
  • Sort out resume
  • Start contributing more to GitHub and StackOverflow
  • Contact recruiters
  • Look into the 3 startup incubators/co-working places here in Adelaide.
    • http://hubaustralia.com/spaces/adelaide/
      • In CBD, good location
      • Looks to be the slickest of the three, new looking building and fit out
      • Just started, received a big grant from the State Government and kicked out Format (http://format.net.au/)
      • Most expensive: $600/month. Seems like they’re just using the same pricing as in Sydney and Melbourne, but real estate is cheaper in Adelaide!
    • http://majorandistillery.com/
      • In CBD, good location
      • Went to a talk here, the building is quite old
      • The owner/manager/founder (?) seems to be very proactive, organising events and meetups etc.
      • Seems like mainly guy programmers would work here
      • $300/month
    • http://www.adelaidecoworking.com.au/
      • In Norwood, not optimal
      • Can’t see much in the photos on the site
      • $300/month

    Hey 🙂

    I’m from Hub Adelaide and noticed that you were keen to check out the coworking spaces! They are all excellent communities so would recommend all of them – just really depends on what you are looking for.

    Happy to show you around Hub sometime if you’re keen to find out more about us and learn why our prices are the same as Syd and Melb. Head down to 5 Peel St (which is not actually the old Format building) and ask for Jemma or Neil 🙂

    Cheers,
