Gizmodo had a bunch of secret search tricks too that included personal info like “my flights” and “my shows,” but they didn’t always work for me. Might be worth a try also.
For my job, I need to save a ton of web pages—but most of them I only need temporarily (for the next post or article, for example). To save them to Evernote and then delete or move these pages takes more work than saving them to Pocket and clicking the checkbox to archive it—or, more importantly, make it disappear…
Thank you Moon. I do miss you!
My go-to method is now having lots of fans running when we’re out in the backyard. http://lifehacker.com/keep-mosquitoe…
Lol, have a lollipop
If the interviews went well with the jobs you applied to, ask the hiring managers for any tips for your next job search, things that might have held them back. Some of the hiring managers I talked to said they’d be open to giving that sort of post-interview advice.
Yeah, people are going to ask where you’re going. They’ll probably find out even if you don’t tell them. I wouldn’t worry about the ‘bad blood between companies’ part if other folks have defected there too—and as long as your contract doesn’t say you’re not allowed to work at a competitor.
Thank you! I appreciate that a lot!
Aww, don’t leave! I’m going to be writing about productivity & apps at Zapier, probably also still doing freelance reviews at The Wirecutter, and post whenever I can at How-To Geek. But, again, consider staying!
Much appreciated, Tom, thanks!
That’s a pretty crummy thing for a company to do. I’m not sure what the protocol here is—if you give them a week’s notice, they might just fire you after three days.
Guess this is a good time to tell you all that tomorrow (which happens to be my birthday) will be my last day writing at Lifehacker. It’s bittersweet, but I want to say thank you to all the great commenters here who have been part of my life for the last five years. I’ll still be around in the comments, though, and…
That’s a good solution. Unless your friends already have very expensive tastes, of course ;)
I agree with you for the most part, but it’s odd that people ignored what their friends specifically asked for on their registries and instead got a different item from the same category. I think there should be a balance between getting people what you think they want or need and letting them choose also. (I like to…
This is an awesome story. Thanks for sharing.
I’d like to take this opportunity to give a shout out to former Lifehacker writer and editor Kevin Purdy. When I first started here five years ago, he helped me get acclimated, shared post ideas, and discussed with me freelancing in general. Even after leaving Lifehacker, he also referred me to other freelancing gigs…
You got it
Thanks for the correction
That’s pretty exciting! Let us know what happens (and congrats to you & the mom)
