It's awesome, tragic, and deeply ironic that TSA Pre screening takes place amid tepees at the National Museum of the American Indian.

In our last installment, we talked about when, why, and how to quit your job. This time out, we’ll discuss what to do when you have a lot to offer but can’t seem to connect with the right job.

When you have a solid resume but can’t seem to connect with the right job, reframe your career niche or refocus your work persona to open different hiring tracks.

I’m as mindlessly worshipful as the next 21st century design nerd, but it’s sad that more school kids know Steve Jobs than Gandhi.

We live in the future and complain because George Jetson never conceived of a jetpack which only worked on Tuesdays.

  • An Event Apart
    Co-Founder, 2005 - present
    An Event Apart is an intensely educational two-day learning session for passionate practitioners of standards-based web design. If you care about code as well as content, usability as well as design, An Event Apart is the conference for you. Dedicated to the proposition that the creators of great web experiences deserve a great learning experience, An Event Apart brings together twelve of the leading minds in web design for two days of inspiration and enlightenment plus an optional third-day workshop on topics like multi-device design, responsive web design, content strategy, CSS3, and HTML5.
  • A List Apart, for people who make websites
    Founder, Publisher, 1998 - present
    Leading the field since 1998, A List Apart (ISSN: 1534-0295) explores the design, development, and meaning of web content, with a special focus on web standards and best practices. We publish big ideas by outstanding designers, developers, writers, and strategists.
  • A Book Apart
    Publisher, Co-Founder, 2009 - present
    Web design is about multi-disciplinary mastery and laser focus, and that’s the thinking behind our brief books for people who make websites. We cover the emerging and essential topics in web design and development with style, clarity, and, above all, brevity — because working designer-developers can’t afford to waste time. A Book Apart publishes highly detailed and meticulously edited examinations of single topics. We produce brief books of about 100 pages — the perfect size in terms of subject depth and coverage for topics like HTML5, CSS3, content strategy, responsive web design, and more. The goal of every title in our catalog is to shed clear light on a tricky subject, and do it fast, so you can get back to work.
  • Happy Cog™
    Founder, Chairman, 1999 - present
    At the height of the dot-com boom, when "good" websites were inaccessible Flash-powered broadcast- and brand-oriented, ludicrously expensive vanity projects, I founded a design studio that was user- and content-focused, used web standards to make content accessible to all and to push what could be done in open-web-based design. Today we have offices in three cities and work with some of the smartest clients around.
