As many of you know, my former employer, Radical Entertainment basically was shut down recently. Many of my ex-coworkers are now out of a job. Because I’m lazy, my LinkedIn profile still lists Radical as the last company that I worked for. I guess some people just assumed I got caught up in the layoffs as well because I’ve received many different pieces of correspondence from recruiters and HR people, all wondering if I was interested in applying to their company. While it’s great to see the industry rallying to help itself, it’s not a good sign that most of the companies trying to help are outside of Vancouver. The industry is doing ok but apparently not here.
I need to go reply to these messages now and thank them for thinking of me but someone else is more deserving of consideration.
