The email was from an HR person, saying that her company was interested in hiring me for a senior communications job.
I remembered the email at about 8 p.m., while I was cleaning up after dinner. It had arrived mid-afternoon, while I was busy trying to finish up a client's project.
I went back and looked at it again. Spam, I figured. But I looked up the HR person on Linkedin and, sure enough, she really did work at that company. So I sent back an email saying I'd be happy to talk.
The following day we chatted, and she asked me to send along my resume.
I updated my resume and sent it off. The woman wrote back and asked for another phone conversation, and that's set for tomorrow morning.
I love running my own company, but this is a challenging opportunity (to put it mildly). There are times when I wish I hadn't left Apple, and this would certainly be my chance to apply all the things I've learned as a small business owner in the past three years — things which I believe would make working a corporate job, at the right company, as much fun as being an indie business person.
Is this the right company? That's what I'm going to try to find out.
