2/10 WOULD NOT INGEST

on: September 28, 2010, 05:35:13 AM

Maybe we want to put job stuff in someplace other than Useless Conversation.  It's not useless and it distracts us from posting about random bullshit (read the UC thread rules).

Anyway, I got a email about a job offer in Alpharetta, GA for RIM (you know, Blackberry).  Looking for someone strong in HPUX 11iV3 and RHEL 5.  Can PM me for details.

Why am I homeless?  Why do all you motherfuckers need homes is the real question.

While I hate to derail this, I might as well post this up:

DC/MD/VA area

Temp (and a possibility of becoming perm) contracting gig.   Needs to have strong Juniper and Cisco skills.  Netscreen and Acme Packet familiarity a bonus.  Solid understanding of IP Routing (including BGP).

PM me for details.

Do we have any full-time Web Content Editors here? I'm entering negotiations with a venture capital and media firm and I'm looking for a good starting point for salary. I'd be doing copy, general editing, and possibly managing communications like Twitter and Facebook. I don't want to low-ball myself yadda, yadda.

Applied for an entry level installer job at Comcast two days ago. Got a call today about starting the interview process. While not an ideal job, it starts at almost a dollar an hour more than I used to make and I might be able to get free internets which would be nice.

I just got hired on as a Messaging Specialist for a major oil and gas player here in Calgary. I'm beyond excited. The timing couldn't be more perfect for this as it's a major raise in all areas of my career. I've taken a very long a winding road in my IT career (I have next to no schooling), but it's nice to actually step into a role that's more focused and specialised.

Plus, the benefits and salary are incredible.

I don't do so well with blood.  Or body fluids.  Or people.  Mom's been a nurse for thirty years, so I've seen what she's gone through.

Amen to this.  It takes a special type to be a nurse.  In addition to all the stuff you have here, you get to put up with MDeities, which is generally spectacular.

So the Comcast interview went fairly well.

When I asked when their benefits kick in for new employees they said 90 days and I thought to myself "America, Fuck yeah!" (most jobs in this town are 30 days, or if it is a University job day 1)

But hey, a job is a job at this point.

Should get the word out to new grads in AZ RN gigs have gotten scarce here with the flood of recent graduates and ailing state economy.

In Oregon, no one is hiring nurses, and facilities are getting fined for being understaffed.

My mother has been looking for work for like 6 months and has barely even gotten a bite, and she has 10+ years of hospice experience.

If I was out of a job with no prospects at this point in my life I would probably look at apprenticing to a plumber or a starting welding or pipe fitting job or some such.

Huh...just did a Monster Search for RN positions, over 5000+ US wide, was 50+ in AZ, 30+ in OR, curious, did Oregon adopt the same nurse to patient ratio that California put into place?  Oh, I know that some areas can be a bitch to get a job, Indianapolis has ups and downs with many of the RN's threw out the state driving there to take jobs since they pay a ton (we share crappy flats and work 3 in a row to maximize the money if possible), a lot of it is what you are willing to work, I'm working night shifts with every other weekend, but many people don't want to work that kind of shifts.  Legacy Health System in Portland OR, has 29 RN slots listed right now, I usually look at the hospital or agency and go to there web site and figure out what is available and then follow up on openings if I was looking for a job.  The bigger web sites aren't that effective.  I also get head hunter calls about 1 or 2 times a month from travel RN companies.

About a year ago I almost went back for HVAC.  Plumbing sucks...  30 years of poop in a pipe will turn you off that fast. 

We're considering a move to Seattle in the next year for a change of scenery and I don't think the HVAC would go over so well there.  I suspect, at least.

Plumbing...ecch. I'm considering a third act career switch, electrician is the building trade I like best. Can do it until you're 90, it's mostly clean and because it's dangerous to newbs, you can bill accordingly. But the apprenticeship is a killer when you're already 40 and making a decent salary.

My dad just retired as an electrician - his issue was that it was tough on his knees.  When his plant closed up last year he started looking for other work, but quickly found that the only stuff out there required too much up and down (heh) to keep him doing new construction builds.  Good luck though, he was very satisfied with his career.

And yeah, that would be a royal pain making the switch and starting from the bottom rung.  At least you know what you're in for if you choose it.

Yeah, but you can make a lot of good money as a plumber.  And if you're savvy enough to run your own business, you can do very, very well (because of the Ecch).

On a resume, what is the best way to differentiate between:
  • Solid knowledge and experience (Windows OSes, PHP, mySQL, etc.)
  • Once solid but now ancient (VMS-VAX machine I admin'd that was decommissioned six years ago)
  • Some familiarity, but limited exposure (Solaris, IRIX, RedHat, etc.)

Extensive experience: MS Windows, PHP, mySQL, VMS-VAX
Familiarity with:  Various UNIX/Linux systems (Solaris, IRIX, RedHat)

2 lines, leaves out the negative. A resume is as much about leaving out parts of the information as it is about putting information there in the first place.
