"My contract at Microsoft was ending and I was looking for my next job. So, of course I put my Facebook status to something like 'looking for a job.' Almost predictably, a friend in Chicago saw it and mentioned she had a contact at Paramount who was looking to fill a position. A few weeks later I flew to LA, a city I hadn't been to since I was nine, and interviewed for two positions. They offered me a job that day and two weeks later I was driving a packed car from Seattle to LA."
