    OT: Crappy day

    Went to get cast off today - DENIED! 6 more weeks. Ironically I go into work and I have 6 weeks to find a new job since I'll be out of one 12/31.

    I need some help:

    1. Post lots of good riding pictures and videos. Mental health is failing.

    2. If you know of any sales/business development / analyst positions - shoot them this way.

    Don't be in such a hurry to find a job. Winter is a fine time to be unemployed.

    Oh - and your resume could use some proofreading/editing.

    Not when wife doesn't work and you have two kids.

    Proofing / editing counts as help also.

    Losing your job is no laughing matter, man. These days it's who you know, not who receives your resume. Any resume you do submit, well, it's a new day and it should read like what works these days. Go to Monster.com and read up how to write a modern resume. (not saying yours doesn't fit that model but still do some research on what works best)

    I sympathize about your cast. When my right wrist was casted (six weeks) I forgot which day I was supposed to go in and get it off. I called to verify my appointment to get it removed and they said "oh, that was yesterday, we can't get you in for another two weeks". WHAT!!!???!!! I screamed and demanded they get me in. The idea of another day in that dam cast was maddening (sound familiar). I demanded my way into getting it taken off that day...than a long long long long long period of rehab began. Good luck.

    edit: something along the lines of, anybody checking out resumes for any job at his company has 30 seconds to devote to each resume. You need to grab their attention in that short period as to why you're the guy for the job. Whatever resume you do come up with, read the first 30 seconds worth--did it convince the guy in personnel to not throw yours in the circular file? Doesn't matter what extensive job history you list, everyone has an extensive job history. It's getting called in for an interview.

    edit 2: read my signature.

    Jay, LinkedIn has done me pretty righteously...as far as engineering goes. I don't know about sales/analyst tho. Dunno if you're considering a .gov job, but usajobs.gov...
    Finally, there's a jobs webcrawler called Indeed.com that'll bring in all sorts of other sites. Good luck man!

    Look on the bright side: this gives you a chance to look for a job while you still have a job. I've heard that's the first line resume-readers look at, are you currently employed?

    Second line they look at is, are you currently in a cast. If the "yes" box is checked, that's bonus points.

    Here's a few pics to brighten up your day. they were taken about this time of the the year when I was just out of my cast and wandering around off trail near Doudy Draw with the cheapest camera I've ever owned.

    Dood - it's not JUST pretzels, it's pretzels with hot mustard.
    Huge difference.
    If you were just gonna mention one of the 2 it shoulda been the hot mustard.
    IE - "smoked pumpkin ale, hot mustard, and bike talk"
    Glad I could help.

    I have a couple of friends in the oil/gas industry, I'll pass along your resume. Good luck man, i know it sucks now but it's only temporary.
