yesterday had a nice long phone conversation with the VP of Engineering for Empirix (also in Waltham, like Porivo’s new parent Gomez, and yes Gomez and Empirix have a long-standing but… strange… partnership). Basically, the same result as everyone else, though – they love my resume, would love to have me, but don’t have the slots / free money / etc. to do so. He said they could probably get it done around October or so, but that’s not very helpful to me at the moment
On the bright side, he said he was going to meet with their CFO today to see if anything could be worked out, but I let him know about all the timing situation stuff so hopefully I’ll be talking with him again this afternoon to find out what the dealio is.
I really need to get these few parts of my resume I’m not happy with re-written so I can send updated versions to the various places I’m targeting now. Bleah.
