I Used To Write Job Ads

Back in the day, just before and during the early days of the Internet, I used to write job copy. I generated about 90% of my fees by selling this to my clients.

The event organisers started the day with a set of "speed pitches" from the various vendors involved in sponsoring / exhibiting at the event. As someone who is involved in both recruiting and implement inbound marketing strategies for technology companies, this would be interesting exercise.

It is never past the point where it is possible to be what you may have been. Never work only for cash or for force. They won't save your soul or help you sleep at night. Diligent work is terrible when life is without reason.
