I'm also a junior at New Mexico State hoping to graduate next year with an Accounting degree and then on to grad shcool probably. Just a word of advice for those being laid off and having trouble finding a job, go back to school if you don't have a degree. I went back after taking a 10 year hiatus and I'm glad I did and I'm doing this while working full-time and raising a family. So no excuses for anyone else!

Here is what I envision. This poll will serve as a gateway for the Job Forum. Each of the above listed segments of the workforce will have a designated Sub Thread which can be turned into a group forum that people can subscribe too. Inside each sub thread people of similar backgrounds can list their location, specific job title, and other relevant information that will help out others. I REALLY encourge individuals who are recruiters to get involved because they are the gateway to big time companies, those people are the golden kids. We can help one another get great jobs and work to make this a real community that cares about the well fare of one another.

FYI, posted this in the original thread...

Awesome idea!!! We are hiring like crazy lately and I would love to help a fellow Bronco fan and Maner get a great position with long lasting security!

In particular I would be looking to help folks with the following skillset/training:

Contract Administration

Engineering (General, Industrial, Mechanical, Electrical, Electronic/Avionics, Propulsion, Aerospace, and Software)

Quality Assurance/Quality Engineering/Product Assurance

If you have skills that are even close, get in touch with me. I received an email today that stated some of the upcoming events regarding meeting our agency's vision. One of the things that stood out was the following:

First, let me tell you where we stand on Human Capital. Our need to hire qualified and fully capable personnel over the next few years will be significant. Everyone in the Agency will be needed to ensure we execute a human capital strategy that works. Our Human Resources (HR) folks are working very hard with the Office of Personnel Management and a professional HR contractor to get our recruiting and hiring strategies in place to deliver human capital results based on a full understanding of the Agency's short and long-term needs...


So, I have an opportunity to help both a fellow Maner and my agency if skill sets match. And, while I am in the Denver location myself, my agency has personnel all over the nation and overseas as well. If your skillset matches up with our needs, and you're not some bum (Bob need not apply! ) I feel confident we have a position for you! Another excellent source for information would be our very own Miss Independent. Her schedule is packed right now, but I would imagine she would help a fellow Maner if she felt you could help our agency in return. Hope you don't mind me name dropping, G.

Students!!! If you are close to gradumatating or have recently graduated and are looking for employment, chances are we have something for you as well. If you are a Culinary Arts major we may not have anything for you... but Miss Independent is pretty creative so anything is possible! Seriously, there are a series of openings available right now. I've heard our agency is interested in hiring several hundred/thousand people in the next few years. That number is out of date and has probably changed in recent weeks/months, but I would guess the number has increased, if anything.

Once again, GREAT THREAD and I wish all of you the best of luck in finding employment or keeping your current position if that is your wish.

Good Luck!

Technically a field geologist for a rapidly growing environmental services company. I say technically because on top of geological sampling, analysis, and remediation oversight I'm cross trained in industrial hygiene and safety (IHS), about to start handling a good chunk of GIS work, help with CAD, and have covered for site supervisors on our demolition side.

Based in St. Louis and work throughout pretty much all of Missouri, Illinois, and partially into Kentucky and Indiana. HR stuff really isn't my deal but if someone is in the greater St. Louis area and is a union laborer, operator, asbestos abatement worker, has a PE stamp, IHS certs and experience, or a geology or earth sciences degree I could put you in touch.

For the trades though union is a must, we're a pretty strongly union outfit on the trades side of the company.

Cool if you can win the contracts. Bidding has been akin to "dog eat dog" lately. Over the past decade we've faced 4-8 competitors a bid opening, the last few moths those numbers have increased to 14-20. We've cut our profit margins to all time lows, and are still being beat by "no-name" companies which are bidding lower than cost. I guess "buying work" is better than cutting the workforce.

When you have a
'I Hate My Job' day,
[even if retired you have those sometimes]
try this:

On your way home from work, stop at your pharmacy and go to the thermometer
section and purchase a rectal thermometer made by Johnson & Johnson

Be very sure you get this brand..

Change into very comfortable clothing and sit in your favorite chair. Open the package and remove the thermometer. Now, carefully place it on a table or a surface so that it will not become chipped or broken.

Now the fun part begins.

Take out the literature from the box and read it carefully. You will notice that in small print there is a statement:

'Every Rectal Thermometer made by Johnson & Johnson is personally tested and then sanitized. '

Now, close your eyes and repeat out loud five times,'I am so glad I do not work in the thermometer quality control department at Johnson & Johnson.'

Change orders, when warranted are part of contracts, once awarded, but most municipalities and water districts cover their asses regarding additional charges above and beyond the contract terms with cleverly authored specifications which exclude almost any avenue for additional charges, ("contractor to verify pre-existing conditions", "all information is based on best available data", "Contractor to verify all dimensioning prior to bid","engineer assumes no responsibility of information provided by others") are some which can "bite you in the ass. What we are encountering are companies which are venturing into our market and have little or no experience with the costs associated with the industry. Stringent testing requirements, start up costs, training costs, and safety requirements which are not as enforced in the residential markets. The other type of contractors we are now facing are the "mom and pop" operations which have little or no GC costs associated with their operation.

To give an example: we just bid on a water treatment plant in Elizabeth a few weeks ago. We were 4th. The winning bidders' price was more than $370.000 less than our bid. We estimated the cost without profit margin to be higher than his bid. Bidders #2,and 3 (which BTW have been in "our" market for decades) were both within $40,000 of our bid.
WTF is he doing? Illegal labor? Using Legos in lieu of brick?

Oh well, back to estimating. Gotta sharpen that pencil.

If I could tomorrow, I would scrap our avaya system and put in POTS lines. I no longer see the necessity for phones on ever desk with Moblie Phone, IM, and Email solutions.

depends on the company.. about 70% of our workforce are agents who communicate with our customers, and they use desk phones a lot. Due to the fact that we are split over several hundred locations I can see the benefits of skill based routing and some other features we will get with the new phone system (Siemens btw.). But I do not think that it will save us money and I also think it will cause a lot of troubles.. especially as we have several hundred locations. The technology is still interesting.. who would have guessed that you would get hundreds of server with a new phone technology... I certainly was surprised

We have had the same problem in our market with all the Electrical Contractors bidding the bigger commercial jobs. With the housing boom going bust we have a lot of residential contractors low balling the bids. As a union we never really have competed with the house ropers due to the wage differences between our compensation packages. The problem now is that they are bidding into areas that we as a union used to have a bigger market share of. The problem with these house ropers is they don't have the skill or experience to due these bigger jobs, but it isn't really about craftsmanship anymore it is about who has the lowest price.

Neither, ha. It's a BS in Molecular Biology. I do downstream work in bioanalytical, developing assays for preclinical/clinical testing. I've only been doing it for a few years out of college here and it's really not for me. I'd like to get back in school, perhaps in a completely different area... business, econ, something along those lines. What about you?

You want to leave health care? Really? in this economy? I work for a large PBM/PPO as part of the P&T advisory committee as well as the daily processing of non formulary Drug requests and daily peer-peer consults on denied requests with physicians/CRNPs/PAs. I also do PRN work at clinics around the state of TX for extra $$(I still have student loans)

I'm an accountant.

I work for a company that does network security for government regulated businesses. So, the more regulations the governent makes, the more money people have to spend on what we offer!

My other job is my own business doing accounting services and payroll services for small companies. I basically do what Paychex and ADP offer to big companies but I offer it to small companies at much less than they do!

crap I wrote a big blog and now b/c of time out it was erased. Oh well basically I work at a seasonally outdoor manager restaurant within a private country club. So far we got raises and bonuses up to 3 % and we are having a better fiscal year then last year so far but The GM is preaching every staff meeting about cost, cost , cost. We really don't experience the super highs of the economy but we also are buffered against a slow economy so a little give and take. I personally would like to get to know more Food/Hospitality/Beverage people b/c of recent threads would like to talk about challenges and such as.
