I’m English Major with a BA Degree who has been a software engineer for 12+ years.
Loosely translated, this means: I know a bit of French, read Milton, Tolkien, Angelou and Achebe , write short stories all the time AND geek out on databases.
For fun, I decided to write my perfect job description. Roughly, it reads something like:
Local flower shop is seeking a self motivated shop assist. Candidate must enjoy assembling colourful arrangements whilst running our e-commerce database-driven website, with reasonable hours so said candidate has ample time to explore short story ideas.
Now doesn’t that sound lovely?
