Happy New Year!
Please allow me to briefly introduce myself; My name is Elise Holland
and I am one of the owners of a boutique recruiting agency (TriNova).
One of our clients (described below) is looking for a talented OO Perl
developer to function as their lead Web developer. I think this is a
wonderful opportunity for the right person as it's an interesting,
niche-oriented company with a fun, intellectually-stimulating crew of
people on board. I understand that you belong to a Unix Users' Group
(and Unix is another important piece of this position) so I thought
perhaps you might be able to help me. It's been a tough search so far!
Would it be appropriate for me to send this email to your users' group?
Also, is this something you might be qualified for/ interested in? Or,
do you know anyone who may be interested? I would be happy to provide
more information, if so. Also, my firm gladly pays referral bonuses if
we place your referrals!
Thank you so much in advance for any help.
All the best,
