Looking For Group

I'm looking for full-time work. The majority of my experience is in Linux administration and PHP development (recently with a Drupal focus), but I'm a polymath: there's little on the internet I haven't at least brushed past, and I'm an expert on several fields within it, ranging everywhere from computer hardware to social trends. I'm entirely self-taught, a hard worker, good both on teams and individually, and I don't let my ego get in the way.

I am currently sifting several RSS feeds for public job postings, so I have no shortage of jobs to apply to. However, each job application is a fairly involved process of multiple emails, phone calls, and interviews. It's one of the truisms in the IT industry that it's not what you know, but who you know. I know a whole lot of technology, but I've had a harder time knowing how to ask my social circle for help. Given recent events, I'd be a fool if I didn't head-butt through get past that particular mental block with alacrity.

So if you know of an IT position you could recommend me for, please pass my resume on. If you know an IT director or an HR person, ask if they need a dedicated internet guru on their team, or know someone who does. I'll also take contracts on as I can, although juggling contract work with current needs seems more difficult.

Please, and thank you.
