A recent Yale grad, who is a friend of a friend, wants to work on
education but is also interested in doing the "Bay Area start-up
thing" that she has been hearing so much about from her friends.
I don't know Christina, but she comes so highly recommended from my
friend, that it is enough to even allay my fears prompted by her
choice of schools.
Her resume is included below. If anyone has any available positions,
they should move fast. Christina is out visiting the Bay Area through
Tuesday and is totally available for interviews. Through Tuesday, she
can be reached at 415 552 7166.
