In which Primo and I discuss - or, better put, have a one-sided discussion about his possibly getting a job soon if he does not win the election, which could happen because this is such a bizarre year and the people here hate DT so so much that they just might not vote, which would help Primo



Me: I met an IT recruiter at the PMI meeting last week and spoke to him today.

Primo: So?

Me: He's really nice. He places people at [globally-known companies with operations in our city].

Primo: So?

Me: And he is always looking for engineers! For project work!

Primo: Uh huh.

Me: I told him about you and that you hadn't been working for the past two years because of your mom and dad and all he said was that they would really like to talk to you!

Primo: But my technical skills are out of date.

Me: Primo. You have skills other engineers do not have. It's easy to find the technical skills. It is so much harder to find someone who understands the technical stuff and can explain it to people who are not technical.*

Primo: Maybe.

Me: It would be very nice for you to have job, don't you think?



* NB That is actually my job, although at a far less technical level than Primo's old job.

  1. I work in IT and can second, third, fifth, hundredeth unto infinity that what you say is true. Finding techies is easy. Finding techies who can switch between speaking English and Techie is nearly impossible.

    1. Anon, I showed this to Primo as soon as I saw it. Preach!

  2. So what's his game plan if he's not elected? Surely he doesn't expect you to support him forever while he runs for different offices, or does he?

Primo reads this blog, so please keep that in mind in your comments.
