Novell's Product Design Services department creates designs and
prototypes that eventually get built as Novell software programs. We are
looking for a few individuals who are proficient in Linux, have good
communication skills, and a desire to share knowledge of Linux
technologies. If selected, you will work side-by-side with one or two
employees, helping them migrate their design and computer skills to the
Linux platform. You'll be asked to contribute and discuss ideas for
future strategies and designs of Linux projects. It will be an informal
working environment, but you will be asked to sign a non-disclosure

Currently, there are three openings. Each job is temporary and part
time. Each starts in May and ends 1 August 2004. The work schedules are
flexible. Based on your agreement with Novell, you can work up to 60
hours per month for May, June, and July. The pay starts at $14 per hour.

If selected for this position, you'll help Novell succeed in the Linux
market. You'll also make some good contacts, gain experience working in
a corporation, and have a voice in how Novell designs and develops Linux
products. On completion of your assignment, your performance will be
reviewed and you'll receive a letter of recommendation to be used for
future job opportunities.
