Finding the Job you've always dreamed of.

OK, I know that this is not really Web2.0, Business, Marketing or MySQL related, but I found a very inspiring story about an executive finding a job of his own dreaming.
I'm a lucky guy who has an interesting and fulfilling job, but paving the road for the career of your dreams is something that everyone should get used to, especially in this turbulent times.

work @ webfaction: they need an australian customer support person

What they need the most in the short term is someone who could do customer support between 3am and 11am, London time, so someone in Australia would be perfect

Do you happen to know anyone who might be interested in the job?

Ideally it would be someone who’s familiar with web technologies (web, DNS, e-mail servers), linux and maybe some web frameworks (Django, Rails,. ..).

The candidate would be doing customer support (answering tickets) but if they’re interested they could also do sysadmin work or even development work.



see the webfaction job page for more details
