I *Really* Want This Job

No, I'm not back posting regularly just yet, but I ran across my dream job and was wondering if anyone had any connections to help me land it:

US-CA-San Diego-Series 60 CDMA Solution Manager (technical marketing)

A Bachelor or Master Degree in engineering, marketing or related field of study.

� Understanding of the mobile software project & product planning process

This would be *perfect*. It would be technical, but get me out of daily coding (because we're all seeing how wonderfully productive I am at that). It would also tap into my writing ability and keep me involved with mobile stuff. It's also in my desired cities.

Anyone got any contacts, leads or any other inside knowledge that could help me get on the short list for this, I would be truly grateful.
