      Hi, folks:

      Are you interested in joining a hot fiber optics start-up firm? Or do you
      know any of your friend is looking for this kind of opportunity?

      Send your or your firends' resume to me:

      John Zhaohui Hu

      Calmar Optcom Inc., located in Mountain View (close to HW 101 and HW 237),
      is a fast growing, pre-IPO fiber optics subsystem company.

      Calmar Optcom, Inc. was founded in October 1996. We successfully developed
      and sold high performance fiber amplifiers and high-end optical test
      equipments to many premier companies such as Lucent, JDS-Uniphase,
      HP/Agilent, Sprint, NTT, Tektronix, France Telecom and leading phonic
      research centers worldwide such as National Institute of Standards and MIT
      Lincoln Labs.

      The company is currently focusing on developing next generation optical
      subsystems for the telecom industry. In August 2000, the company raised
      $18.8 million in its first venture capital round of funding from top-tier
      venture capital investors: Bessemer Venture Partners, Crescendo Ventures,
      and Infinity Capital.


      While there are many reasons to join Calmar, here are some key points to
      keep in mind.

      Fiber Optics-the hottest sector - the industry is about building the bricks,
      mortars and the plumbing for the Internet in the 2000�s. The valuations are
      unprecedented with companies being acquired or going public for $Billions.

      Excellent Financing - With $19M in first round financing from premier
      venture capital firms, Calmar is well positioned for growth.

      Broad Customer Base and Great Products - unlike other early stage start-ups,
      Calmar has a broad customer base and products with healthy margin, and is
      even profitable in FY 99.

      Exciting and Rewarding Environment - Calmar is a stimulating and challenging
      place to work. It�s a place to make the greatest accomplishments of your
      career and to be rewarded for that.

      Generous Benefit Package - pre-IPO stock option; 401K program; Life, Health,
      Dental, Vision and Disability Insurance; 20 days PTO; 11 days holidays;
      Flexible Spending Program, etc.
