Still alive

Filed under: Life — sankirnam @ 7:42 pm

Don’t worry – I’m still alive, but I’ve been busy (in a good way) with work commitments, which is why communication has been very sparse here. A lot has happened recently, which I do need to get to, but those will be topics for future posts.

In the meantime, I should share some exciting (or not) news – I crossed 1 million views on Quora, a popular social media-type Q&A site. I’m not a huge fan of social media sites, especially since there are studies that have linked heavy Facebook usage to depression. However, having an online or digital presence is increasingly important, as the products of the tech industry begin to encroach more and more into our lives. I wrote about this before, around this time last year, and my efforts seem to slowly be paying off. It remains to be seen whether this strategy will work for my industry of choice (organic chemistry research) – jobs in that field are obtained through word-of-mouth, hidden handshakes, and backroom deals with influential people. I’m still working on finding out who these influential people are in the companies that have labs around here (Allergan, Pfizer, J&J, Teva, and others).
