  1. applying for a job and then waiting for a response that may never come is one of the most soul-crushing things out there

      I take a targeted approach when I look for a job. I don't put all my eggs in one basket per say, but I do put most of my eggs in only a few really good baskets instead of in thousands. 

       

      A few months ago I was offered an internship at a battery startup in Detroit that I turned down. I didn't even ask for the job. I was attending a startup event and the VP of sales was there and I showed him my ebike I made awhile ago. I got his business card, so I might be able to get a job there even next summer.

       

      It turns out that if you have an obsession with constantly building cool projects, someone will hire you. Build something cool, then show it to your potential employer. They will be much more likely to hire you than just a generic resume. I know I definitely would hire someone who built an oil-cooled PC to work at circletech instead of someone who just sent me a generic resume with a hundred talking points on it.

      Yeah the thing is I can't just go walk to Temple Place and say "Hey, hire me." That being said, I hope I do hear back from MAPC at least.
