Make a difference.

I’ve been searching for years for a company that can actually make use of my abilities; a company that will let me contribute as much as I want to. I’ve found a couple that were pretty close, but I find that most companies are mired in the world of job descriptions and salary bands, and can’t deal with people who don’t fit into narrow job categories.

What do you do if you have experience in everything from engineering and software development, through consulting and support, to marketing and sales, and you don’t fit neatly into one category? What do you do if you’re driven by a burning desire to do more every day?

Are there still any companies that are looking for people who are willing to do whatever it takes to make a difference?

One thought on “Make a difference.

  1. Don’t think big. Think small. The only way you’re ever going to have the creative freedom and job title control (or rather, non-control) is if you go with an outfit of less than 25-50 people.

    The problem is, the insurance will suck and the pay will be in the “low range” instead of the “mid to high range”

    But on the plus side, you’ll wear a ton of hats and get to do very important, impacting things on that business.

    I suggest finding a small business that’s an “up and comer” or simply one that’s struggling and pulling them up by their bootstraps. A real money-where-your-mouth-is thing.

    As much as I’d like to say I’m that adventurous, I’m not.
