I often advise people to go where the geeks are career-wise because, let's face it – I speak to geeks. I'm about geeky people doing geeky things, fans doing fans doing fannish things, otaku doing . . . otakunoid things? Well, anyway, conjugation aside you know the drill – I'm about people going where they find likeminded folks and do professions that fit their interests.
But my recent columns on HR got me thinking. I've advised folks to deal with HR by upping their geek game and leveraging technology and knowledge to work around the flaws in the world of the job search. I'm thinking now I've thought too small.
