Follow Up to What's Next


I didn't even get an interview for the Plan B Executive Director spot.  Oh. Well.

What's Next For Me

I've applied for a new position.  Doing what?  On December 20th I received -- as did a large number of people -- an e-mail advertising a position for the Plan B team.  The position they advertised was that of Executive Director.

Here's my cover letter:

To Whom It May Concern:

I am applying for the position of Executive Director of the B Team. The B Team website tells applicants to reference #1453. Consider this my cover letter.

I am also attaching two resumes. One, cjdcivic.doc, covers my career in work that is probably of more interest to the B Team. The other resume, cjd.doc, covers my technical career in information technology for the most part. Both resumes cover my educational background. I first earned a degree in physics from Rutgers University. After working in that field and doing some graduate study in that field, I tried a switch to social psychology by becoming a graduate student in social psychology at Columbia University.

I will also point you to some blog postings of mine on my blog Independent Broad Minded Centrist (http://independentbroadmindedcentrist.blogspot.com) that are relevant to the kind of work that the B Team seems interested in. They are:
My photographic art has drawn all sorts of attention. I do have a Flickr site that you can find at http://www.flickr.com/photos/27233112@N05/ . My Science Fiction Art (http://www.flickr.com/photos/27233112@N05/sets/72157623558606716/ ) has drawn significant attention in Washington, DC art circles and elsewhere.

I am very much impressed with the work that Sir Richard Branson has done in multiple fields. I am probably more acquainted with Virgin Galactic than most people. One occasional dream I have is taking one of those Space Ship Two trips into space – with camera gear of course.

I expect that many people will be interested in applying for this position. This is a way for the right person to make a significant contribution to helping business enterprises make more positive contributions to world society.

Thank you for considering my application.
