Could give me any suggestions about which companies I should apply to, or
do you know a good placement company I should talk to?

I saw you are an organizer of the Perl Meetup group, as well as seeing your
name in other Perl posts and mailing lists.

I enjoy Perl programming and using Linux and Unix and have over 10 years
experience on these. Currently I work at IBM for Michelin, where I get to
work with Perl fairly often.

I live in South Carolina and am hoping to find a job where I can work some
weeks on site in New York and work the rest remotely, perhaps two weeks
every two months in NY. My mother lives in Brooklyn and I enjoy visiting,
but I don't want to move family to NY.

Thank you for your help,

David Selby
