On the subject of dovetailing skill sets…


Just came across this gem of a Craigslist post in my RSS reader.

computer/gardening help (Cambridge)

Harvard academic requires help at home/home office. Approximately five-10 hours a week to help with computer (creating an address book; digitizing photograph collection); and simple gardening.

Located four blocks west of the Square—near ART and Cronkhite Center; flexible hours. Salary to be arranged.

Please send bio

Creating an address book? Check. Digitizing photograph collection? Boring, but check. Simple gardening? That might mean going outside away from computers. No check.

I don’t know too many gardening computer experts but if you excel in both fields and you live in the Boston area, say hello to your new dream job. Don’t forget your bio.
