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
