Job hunting is soulcrushing

Okay, on a good note, I've had four phone calls today from recruiter/headhunter type folks; two of them found me from my newly posted resume, the other two were callbacks from bumps I sent.
I've also had a couple of e-mails, including one setup for an interview with a direct company that looks promising. I'm also getting repped into Boston Scientific tomorrow for a position that they have open.

The nice thing is that my experience is highly technical and has been flirting around the medical device industry for a while, so I'm in a good position to become a lamprey on well-funded medical device design companies. That's a decent position to be in during a recession, but it is not recession proof, as was learned by Medtronic around that July of 2000 timeframe.

Let's hope.

Hey Rob,
I don't know if you knew this, but Hellbob works at Boston Scientific. He's in the IS Systems Support department as the End Systems Security Administrator. I'm sure it's no where near the department you're going to, but feel free to put him down as a personal reference. (His real name is Rick Snyder)
Also, if you're going for a permanent job rather than a contract job, he's willing to split the hiring bonus if you put him down as the referral.
If you wanna contact him his email is hellbob at gmail

No, I didn't know that, but excellent, yes.

I don't know if the hiring bonus is possible, as I'm being put in by a recruiter, but I'll certainly try. If I get an interview. And get hired.

But cool! Thanks!
