Employment wanted in San Francisco area for 4 months Dec-02 to Apr-03

Ah, subtlety is a lost art... :-)

Yeah, I'm heading to the SF area (from New Zealand), and I'm really keen to find a job in the IT arena. This could well be my only opportunity to ever work in the US in my life, so it'd be cool to actually get experience within the IT arena rather than the dish washing arena. :-)

Dream job

Something involving:

  • UI
  • Python
  • Open Source tools/development
  • Embedded software

Dream employers

  • Google
  • Apple
  • Someone doing something productive & not just trying to sell more widgets to people who don't need them.

I'm also keen for any tips on improving my chances of employment.

I'd appreciate it if you could contact me here: web@rancidbacon.com

[Oh, and if anyone's concerned about the "job stealing" issue: with the student work exchange visa program I'm participating in, US students get the same opportunities in New Zealand, except they get 12 months rather than 4 months. (Must be something to do with the exchange rate. :-) )]
