How to Find and Apply to Industry Roles

So I recently attended the Scismic [1] webinar on How to Find and Apply to Industry Roles This follows on from last months webinar.

Some really useful tips here on what to look for, how to match skills to roles, how to emphasise your skills / experience / expertise to the job description. Different skills and types of roles between academic and industry experience and how you add these to your CV to gain the attention of the Hiring manager.

A really good webinar. I am adapting my notes as I am not looking at working in Biotech, nevertheless the idea of the informational interview could be really useful going forward.

If you are looking for a job in Biotech. I would recommend reaching out to Erin at Scismic and seeing how they can help. They are a job matching service, so they can take your skills etc and match to possible vacancies.

Informational Interviews

So I recently attended the Scismic webinar on Informational Interviews. This follows on from the 'A summary of you' webinar from 7th May.

The webinar included an explanation on what an informational interview is, the purpose. preparation and how to go about setting on up. The difference between this and a formal interview process and the fact these interviews are about finding out about roles and not about asking for a job.

Some excellent tips were on the sort of questions to ask, the type of questions can be put in to four categories.

A really good webinar. I am adapting my notes as I am not looking at working in Biotech, nevertheless the idea of the informational interview could be really useful going forward.

If you are looking for a job in Biotech I would recommend reaching out to Erin at Scismic and seeing how they can help.

Ansi Weather 2

Donate using Liberapay

Further to my previous post on ansi weather

I wrote this, which asks for your location, and displays the weather.

echo "where do you live ?"
read location
ansiweather -l $location

In my previous post I was trying to use sed to clean up the output, this isn't needed as the -a option removes the colour coding from the output

ansiweather -a false -l Plymouth, UK >> weatherinfo.txt

Produces

Weather in Plymouth => -10 °C – Wind => 1.72 m/s NNW – Humidity => 62 % – Pressure => 1028 hPa

Which is far better.

so our new shell script is

1 #send weather info to Mastodon
  2 # current date
  3 date > weatherinfo.txt
  4 # current weather
  5 # use -a false to remove colour from output, set location, output to a file
  6 ansiweather -a false -l Plymouth, UK >> weatherinfo.txt
  7 # output to console too
  8 ansiweather -a false -l Plymouth, UK
  9 #send to Mastodon
 10 toot post < weatherinfo.txt
 11 # done
 12 echo done

So the final output to Mastodon is

Final Output

There are more options in the READ.me file

Thank you to Noisytoot for helping with this.

If you now combine the 2nd script with the one I have at the top of this page you should be able to input your location, then get the local weather.

PodCast Search

I found this on the Fediverse last year, so am sharing again as it was originally shared on the Devon & Cornwall Linux user group website. 

As the name suggests this allows you to search for a pod cast in a good range of topics.

Libre Lounge is another podcast that has covered different aspects of the Fediverse, this includes some of the more technical aspects including a multipart discussion on Activity Pub.   Activity pub is one of the protocols that allows posts to be federated across the network.

CEEFAX on the Pi

CEEFAX was a text based TV information service provided by the BBC back in the 80 to 90's. It may have started earlier, not sure.

Fast forward to 2020 and we have working version on the Raspberry Pi computer.

You can read more here.

I am in the process of testing this out. My Raspberry Pi is running Raspbian 9.4 so I am in the process of updating this. It seems the latest update to Raspbian is 9.9.

raspbian update

This may be a long process, so I will have to post an update to this tomorrow. But in the meantime you can read up more.

If I get it working, I will see if I can bring it to the next South Devon Tech Jam on the 14th March. It may be something to have along side the Retro Computing area we are going to be setting up.
