I have an oh so burning desire to work at Yahoo now as a human computer interaction engineer. Currently I know of two blogs of people who are working at Yahoo and from the way they describe it, it seems like a nice homey place. According to this, they have everything that little geek person like me needs – you know, \”healthy\” food, gym, gift shop…non-smokers (because you know, geeks tend to be allergic to everything – have you ever seen me in a Bath and Body store? Yes. exactly.)
A few weeks ago I went to the Career fair and met a rep from Yahoo. I think I was able to give a positive impression as he chose to give my friend and me each a XL Yahoo t-shirt. I also took the step to ask for his business card. Unfortunately due to neglect and common forgetfulness, I forgot to send the obligatory thank you e-mail for him coming all the way from South Bay to Berkeley.
