Why I should never fly with American Airlines again...

Each time I head back home, I always look for good deals online regarding my flight. It's not because of the price itself, but I simply find it fun to do. When you look at your variables -- price and overall comfort -- I must admit this year has been a complete flop! My (poor) choice? American Airlines!

What's wrong with AA? Below is a brief overview:
- an agent at the check-in counter who *yells* at a customer!!!!!!!
- you have to pay for your own snack (I kind of understand that one, but still)
- the space allocated for the carry-on luggage isn't big enough! What?!?
- where is my individual screen?
- since when stewardesses hide behind a curtain to avoid passengers' requests? I'm sorry, but are they enjoying some PTO during their flight?
- the flush button in the toilet is actually hidden on the wall. I don't feel like I should comment anymore on that one...

Conclusion of the story: I'm never flying with AA again! [expect for my flight back to SF... ;)]

College recruiting has kicked in again...

It seems like college recruiting never ends... From the time our last wave of interns leaves Mozilla to the first day new interns walk into our door, we're in our continuous "hunt" for smart students. It' a lot of fun to go to college career fairs and meet so many people passionate about Mozilla.
As of now, our little crew (Bret, Dan, and myself) has just started our first round of career fairs and we've already gathered a lot of interesting resumes...It will be exciting to see what comes out of it...Stay tuned!
For those of you interested in interning with us, feel free to contact me at julie [AT] mozilla [DOT] com
Until then, best of luck with school!

Career Fairs are about to start

As some of you might have read it on my profile, one of my main tasks this summer was to work on our internship program. From the feedback I've received so far, everybody really enjoyed their internship: great projects to work on, great cultural environment and an awesome team and community!
With that being said, it is now time to start again our search for fresh talent to join Mozilla next summer. We will have a booth at the following career fairs: CMU and MIT (they both fall on the same day - 09/18).
If you're interested in finding out more about what Mozilla has to offer, please come by and say hello...! And make sure to hand us out your shinny resume :) Cheers!

What it means to work at Mozilla...

When your job is to recruit people, the ability of "selling" your company is usually crucial. Since I've been at Mozilla, I feel like this part of my role has vanished... People simply get excited about the potential idea of working at Mozilla. And with the recent release of Firefox 3, people have gotten even more excited.
So what is it then that makes Mozilla so special? Is it the mission of the Mozilla project? The great products/projects that have emerged from collaborative work between employees and community members? Passion? Devotion? The effectiveness of our "business model"? Our culture?
I would simply say: all of the above!

I will ask that same question to our interns once the summer is over. I'm interested to see how new eyes capture all of what Mozilla has to offer! To be followed in a couple of months...
