monday blues

8am

argh! monday morning. i better find a job.

10.45am

job offer from Sectorbase.com. cool beans. neato! good offer. i have a meeting with ‘em at 4.30pm today to sign the deal (better be offering options); however, i’m hesitate about accepting. is the product marketable? isn’t McKinzie and Schwab already doing something similar — proprietary financial information offered to subscribers? ehhh…

11am

meeting w/ Otec Technologies. they’re one of ‘em recruiting firms.

in the middle of my interview, i get a call from Allana Spence at Guru.com as a freelance content developer. ok. rates are fair ($40/hr), so i accept. the project was to develop an interactive prototype site before thursday, on which day focus groups will test its functionality and navigation. dang. no probs.

Guru.com started 5 weeks ago. it’s a portal (eventually an online B-to-B resource for HR) about gurus: contractors, consultants, freelancers, etc. we’re talking top-notch chief officers, stategic planners, information architects, creative directors…only the big kahunas are featured, but any contractor can sign up and submit their credentials in hopes of finding a freelance gig.

Harvard b-school grad heading up finances. the chief officers are lead by the Slavet bros., one of which helped launch Drugstore.com (which was eventually bought by Amazon.com). two information architects (super duper copywriters) from Wired and a surfin’ (cowabunga dude!) art director named Steve lead the creative team. smart and dynamic buncha peeps…

4.30pm

turned down the Sectorbase.com offer. i hope i don’t regret it. no, i won’t; i know if did accept, i’d prolly leave after a couple of weeks (ie. Frankel’s Digital Marketing Group)

7pm

home. lo mein for din-din. watched Cruel Intentions starring Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillipe, and Reese Witherspoon. bizaare. very erotic.
