My job search has been a derailed a little lately (more on that later), so rather than highlight the super productive things I've been doing, let me just tell you about the search terms I always think will land me my dream job.
I'm a virologist, so I always search for the variations of that term, virology works, virus doesn't. It suggests computer science jobs. And antiviral is pretty much a nonstarter, I have no interest in working for McAffee or Norton or any of those software companies.
I've also spent a lot of time looking for drugs (antiviral drugs). Drug discovery and drug development work, but just "drugs" suggests a lot of jobs in the non-profit sector. In drug counseling mostly.
And then sometimes I get frustrated wading through tech positions, and I'll just search for phd- don't do that. There are scads of chem or computer science jobs that require a PhD and makes buckets of money.
I promise more on search terms that are working for me soon. Much busy-ness here, I have 5 more papers to edit and am taking another "networking field trip," this time to WA.
