Job fair

My long-term freelance project ended at the end of July. The first few weeks of August were spent dealing with a nasty summer cold, and then getting my website, CV and portfolio in order.

For the past four weeks I've been looking for a new job. I'm looking for a full time position since freelance is so unpredictable and I'm sick of being pulled into projects that are already down to the wire, in need of a miracle to pull them off.

One company stood out as being a possibility, so the trip over to the hell that Potsdamer Platz is wasn't entirely worthless. I swear, that part of the city is such a fucking urban planning failure. I've been over there countless times and STILL get disoriented and can't find my way around it – even with my iPhone and all it's various navigation tools. Nightmare.
