At my last job, one of the main reason's they kept me around was my ability to make good looking flyers, invitations, banner ads, business cards, letterheads, etc etc. After my lay-off I realized I could start doing the same thing freelance and have my first project.

The benefit is that I never need to actually meet my clients, we can exchange ideas and color schemes through emails, and I can even have prints made by an online company I trust and have them shipped directly to the client.


(I know this is a personal plug, but I think the nature of this thread makes it okay.)

PM me if you want to see examples of my work, I can't think of someone I'd rather work for than a 'fester.

If you ever get wind of anything good (but entry) level in sales (particularly medical -or fitness- related) in the St. Pete/Tampa Bay area LMK

Think my personality would lend itself well to sales. ...but if I got a job, I couldn't spend as much time on the 'Fest.

It would be really nice not to beg hubby for things, I like the idea of being able to support myself.

Looks like my company is looking to almost double it's manufacturing workforce.

Check out the listings.
http://www.imclone.com/careers.php

Drop me a PM, and I'll try and answer some of your questions. Many of the manufacturing jobs require no prior pharma/chemical experience. Biology, bio-med, engineering degrees are all plusses.

We have a 2-3 month contract with option for extension for an Agile methodology trainer/consultant. Should be in the NYC area, on-site for the duration of the engagement 3-4 days a week on average but up to 5 days a week at times. Not looking for a single methodology evangelist (e.g. can't have drank the Scrum Kool Aid and think it's the only solution)... looking for a multi-disciplinary expert in Scrum, XP and/or Crystal.

Engagement is in SoHo in NYC.

http://jobsearch.usajobs.gov/agency_search.asp
See what I mean about red tape? I just got an email...

On February 24, 2009, the Federal Bureau of Investigation's online job application system, FBI Hiring Management, will be integrated with the Office of Personnel Management's USAJOBS website.

In preparation for the integration, all currently listed FBI vacancies will close by February 13, 2009. The integration with USAJOBS will make it easier and more efficient for you to apply for Federal positions and manage your online applications.

USAJOBS allows applicants to:
* Create and store up to five resumes online
* Create search agents to receive email notifications for new job postings throughout the government
* Use one login to apply for jobs throughout FBI, and other Federal organizations
* Track the status of jobs you have applied for through USAJOBS in one central location

To prepare for this change and familiarize yourself with the new process, we recommend you create an account on USAJOBS (www.usajobs.opm.gov). If you have not applied for a Federal vacancy posting using USAJOBS, you will need to create a new account, consisting of personal information, user id and password, and at least one Federal resume. If you are already registered in the USAJOBS system you do not need to re-register.

Once established, your USAJOBS account will enable you to post multiple resumes online, apply to other Federal jobs, and receive automated job alerts.

NOTE: After February 23, 2009, the information you have in the FBI Hiring Management, including your resume, will no longer be available. In addition, new job listings will no longer be posted to this system.

Tips for the USAJOBS registration process (www.usajobs.opm.gov):

1. Establish account information
On the USAJOBS website, select the MY USAJOBS option and click "Create Your Account Now!" You will first be prompted to provide contact information, establish user access information and provide citizenship and veterans' preference information.
After entering this information, your new personal page will be created. Here, you can choose to create a new resume or set up email notification agents to alert you to new jobs posted to USAJOBS.

2. Create and Store a Resume
To add a resume on USAJOBS, use the resume builder provided. There are four steps: Getting Started; Experience; Related Information and Finishing Up.

Resumes created on USAJOBS will be centrally stored and can be used to apply for other vacancies within the Federal government. You can store up to 5 resumes on USAJOBS!

Note: To copy a resume currently stored in the FBI Hiring Management system, you must first retrieve the document before February 23, 2009. You can use that data to populate your USAJOBS resume.

3. Create a Job Search Agent (Email notification) USAJOBS allows the creation of up to 10 different search agents to receive email notification of new jobs postings that may be of interest to you. These notifications can be set up to send you job postings available throughout the entire Federal government if you wish. USAJOBS email notification agent(s) will replace any notification preferences you may have set up in FBI Hiring Management.

4. Apply for jobs
After establishing your USAJOBS account and creating at least one resume, you are ready to apply for new positions. When you find a job of interest, simply login to USAJOBS and follow the instructions provided in the vacancy announcement to complete the application process!

Additional information on the application process can be found at: http://www.usajobs.opm.gov/firsttimers.asp

Seriously gov't job postings give me a freakin' headache! The job descriptions are never clear, they often don't clearly specify how much experience they're looking for, and there's a mile long list of things you need to submit. That alone is enough to drive many (talented) people away from gov't jobs!!! I dunno what the government is going to do when the attention-deficit Gen-Y start entering the working world in full force.

How do you see the current budget pressures affecting NASA? I read a Rice University study recommending to the Obama Administration that NASA focus on developing bio-fuels for commercial aerospace, and keep the current shuttles running until 2015 or something. I'm curious how seriously those recommendations are being taken, since they really shift the focus of NASA.

I'm curious how seriously those recommendations are being taken, since they really shift the focus of NASA.
I have always believed the 2004 Bush's Space Exploration Iniative was not the way we should explore space, ie, utilize the ISS for human reseach to go back to the moon and Mars, and de-emphysize scientific research on ISS. First, the mandate lacked the funds behind the ambitions. I also believe the Shuttle will continue to fly for a few more years and not depend and paying the Russians for flights to ISS even after we spent millions of dollars preparing for the shuttle to retire. I think the Obama administration will concentrate more on robotic space exploration rather than manned flights. I predict that we will not return back to the moon nor a flight to Mars in my lifetime.

I just updated my resume and sent it out to a recruiter friend of my husbands.

I've never had a real job interview before. ...and have no 'real' job experience.

I know I need to deal with people (I'm a people person). I think it'd be 'fun' to do something in sales, but I'm open. My BA is in Social Sciences. ....slowly working towards a MS in Exercise Physiology.

I need to find a full time job. I figured I need ~50K a year just to live (if I had to). I figured I could work full time and take one class at a time (at night). Am I being even almost realistic, any advice or ideas? (don't flame me...however, PM me if you have some ideas/comments)

i dont know if there are a lot of jobs starting you at 50k/yr, unless it is sales and you are very good so you could easily surpass that in commission; but straight salary i think it is more likely to be around 28-35k.

Well, I figured out with my lifestyle... I need that to survive. If I found something at 35k, and could make decent commission- that would be okay. ....a little stressful. ...and with this crap market, I think I'd be lucky to find anything period.

Don't mention the word "training" in economy like this... instead, say I learn from what I do (or similar BS). We just turned down a guy who has great people skills and IT experience (although not the kind we're looking for), but the "T" word killed it.
