Oferta Laboral

Un blog que además de ofrecer conocimiento y avisos de conferencias, también incluye oportunidades laborales es algo a lo que estar subscripto, así que ¿Por qué no hacerlo si es gratis? Íngresa tu mail a la derecha de la pantalla y ya está.

Vamos a la oportunidad laboral de hoy, obviamente yo no tengo nada que ver que esta oportunidad y no puedo dar consejo ni ofrecer garantías de ningún tipo. De hecho, la oportunidad fue copiada del site de SCIP, aunque si algún lector del blog es seleccionado me debe una cena en el John Hancock Center de Chicago (ahí es la oportunidad) la comida de ahí no es genial, pero la vista no tiene precio, lo que si tiene precio caro (me han contado porque yo siempre voy invitado por alguien ;)) es la cuenta, pero eso no será nada si es que son elegidos para este puesto ;):
