Five years ago today, I posted an updated version of my Ideal Personal Ad. For some reason, it worked a lot better this time than it ever had before. Despite the fact that I received only one application, it was received in timely fashion, it was very neatly typed, and it came from someone who was not only qualified, but was quite clearly the best man for the job.
The funny thing, though, is that I don’t believe either of us had any idea at the time what the actual job was. Either way, I’m glad he got it.
