Posted on 03/23/2010 5:52:21 AM PDT by GregB
Looking for a way to help unemployed Freepers hook up with Freeper Employers who could use good workers!
There is a big ongoing thread somewhere around here. I’ll see if I can dig it up.
Great idea GB!
If I don’t get back to work here, I’m going to be begging Freeper employers to hire me!
Woohoo! It didn’t take long to get responses!
I am interested and currently unemployed for the 2nd time in my life (at 62). It has been about 6 weeks since I got the notice.
The 105 year old company that I worked for for 20 years (in 2 stints) appears to be closing. The problem was ownership capital problems & cash flow, not operations.
The last week I have heard nothing from my usual sources, it is possible someone is trying to buy it. In the previous week it appeared that another company that I had also worked for had taken over the salesforce.
Since 1972 I have been in the wholesale hardware distribution industry, with 2 privately held companies. Most of my time was in sales & sales management, then retail store design and later I published their catalog (3,000 pages 37,000 SKU’s) from a database. I created and maintained all their web images when we took them on-line for the web.
On the print side, there is no other human who knows the process that we used to create the catalog, except me. If it survives, I am sure they will have to have some help with that.
Great idea...help each other out! Very much like the first Christian community (Acts) shared what they had with each other so that no one went without....the difference being that they were not forced by anything other than their love for God and not wanting to see a fellow believer suffer! This is true compassion!
This is a wonderful idea.
I don’t know the best way to go about it either, but it’d be great to include other like-minded forums like the “big” sites, michelle malkin, etc.
I think I must of been on the thread they had about work a while back and it has come to the surface..These Freepers are a smart bunch!!!
I need a young, energetic CPA who would like a “piece of the action”. This could be your last job.
This is a wonderful idea!
Not just for people out of work,(my husband), but for FReeper companies/businesses that I can buy from/use.
Senior level Marketing/IT guru here. Specialties include communications, eMarketing, employee engagement and communications, and IT systems. Doing contract work now but would love full-time employment again (been unemployed since January 09). Located in West Michigan but am open to telecommuting and possibly relocating for the right job.
I was 54 and working for a bus company and I would transport special needs students to Pittsburgh. They bought out the other company I was working for and there was not much work for going to the Burg. I was doing medicals and local special needs student plus Airports but my pay was going down. I was complaining to my cousin on the phone about money and he said try for another cousin was working so I got an application but just could not get up the guts to take it in after a number of months I did and within 6 months I got an interview. It was between me and another guy and he went no another job so it was mine by default. It has worked out great. we have paid bills off and have been able to save. I hope this thread helps you get a job!! I know my grammer etc,,is not good but instead of going to College I chased girls. Other family member went to College and are making nice money!!
hey great idea..I love it!!!!BTTT..
Glad it worked out for you.
There are a lot of paradoxes in life. One of the more recent I have observed is that today for the first time in my life, many experienced well educated job seekers (over 40-50) are having a real tough time finding work when displaced. This is unusual.
Previously Engineers have had this issue, because of the specialized nature of the skill. But it is a broader problem today than before.
My situation will work out. And I have decided that I never want to be dependent on a single source of income again.
The nation is in a battle with the Left for the freedom of the US. There will be economic casualties for a lot of people as we fight this battle. It will not be over soon.
