Hi, my name is Jeff
In the beginning, there was just being a lawyer. And that was enough. Sure, free burgers were fun. That Mexican joint was a blast, too. Do you know the idiots in marketing wanted them to have cookies at the cash register? What a terrible idea -- that's not authentic Mexican! So I had to start looking for another position.
So then it was back to being a lawyer -- which was cool and all. But the business got to be a bit of a drag and I just wanted to help people do science and heal people. I helped buy a company. And then I helped buy another and another. Then, the layoffs started.
I felt really bad for all the scientists that we let go -- we thought they'd get picked up by someone. And for a while, they were. And then, they weren't. Somewhere in the middle of that, I became the boss.
Do you know how hard it is to be the boss? Of course you don't. Money was still tight, so we had to keep letting people go. I felt so bad. Who was I going to talk to about this?
So I started a blog. And I wrote some posts. And then I wrote a few more and a few more. I got fired, and that stank. But the blog kept going, which was nice.
So I'm looking for a job, just like all of you chemists and other pharma scientists.
My name is Jeff, and I am Chemjobber.
