My friend Jim is the founder and CEO of the Lending Tree of Insurance,– a very cool, profitable company with a bunch of software guys. They’re growing rapidly and in are in need of a Jr. Software Developer with .Net and C# experience, a Director of Marketing, an Affiliate Manager, and an Email Marketing Manager.

Being self-employed allows me to get involved with things like this…Here I am at a High-Tech Career Night Fair event where I served as a recruiter for   The woman to your right was there also as a recruiter as well. She was there independently and was snagging people from the booths even though she never paid for booth space. There were a bunch of people there that did that, including this one gal I recognized from a group I’m a member of.  Anyway, here in this picture, we were waiting in line for some food—I got the jalapeno poppers and then took the jalapeno out, gulping up all of the cheese instead, and everyone thought that was the darn funniest thing. Ha.  These same people also enjoyed chicken wings, but unfortunately I have issues eating things off of bones so I stuck with the poppers…I love chicken though. Something about nawing off the bone just grosses me out, ya know? Makes it seem a little too real and caveman-ish for me. I wish I didn’t feel this way because I’d incorporate things like ribs into my diet. Can’t pass up the free smells though. 

By the way, I’m still trying to help them out, so please let me know if you’ve got a hot lead for me. I’ll reward you handsomely, and will be sure to fill your piggy bank until it explodes. I promise it will be enough to pay your mortgage for a month or two. It’s a win for you, a win for me, a win for the new hire, and a win for Jim. Awesome.

The company offers VERY competitive salaries and benefits, free beer, flexible schedules, and a cool work environment, just to name a few perks.

Anything spam I’ll report so make sure it’s just good old resumes you send me.
***Make sure the resumes are qualified for the positions, and not OVER qualified either. That’s been a problem with the Junior Software Developer position. We’ve gotten tons of people with 7+ years, which is too many for the position. The person would be bored and would want more salary, even though the salary is GREAT, but only GREAT for a JR. Developer, not Sr. level, ya know?
