My week thirty four (*) summary.
Merry Christmas to everybody, I hope you had a good time so far? Only 1,523 readers to go until we reach the #30,000. Given the fact that the last weeks average number of readers was above 800, we will reach the next target in 2 weeks or less 👍.
Besides the Christmas preparation I did remind 70+ people to think about my job proposals from the past weeks and contacted 10+ candidates directly, who seem to be actively looking for a new job, according to their XING profile. It does not always match the reality, as I had to learn in the meantime.
Anyway you have to trust the data you see and will find out later. I did introduce a new profile to one of my customers and got confirmation for two F2F interviews in the 1st week of January 2018. There are some more interested candidates in the pipeline, who have to make up their mind during the Christmas break.
As mentioned earlier I did give one career advice so far and I am looking forward to the time between the holidays to do more. If you are interested look here, but the text is only in German (https://www.computerwoche.de/a/karriereratgeber-2017-18-michael-nuesser-hsc,3332229).
Have a relaxing time with your family and friends and enjoy your time off, I will do 😉.
