Jobs and stuff
« on: June 08, 2006, 09:07:33 AM »
Here's your job thread.  Knock yourselves out.

Some rules:

No spamming with random crap, keep discussions to the listed jobs or finding one.

Make the listings informative, things that should be listed are:
Contact info (even if it's "Send me a PM!")
What the job is
Where it is
Company Name

None of this "hey my company is hiring, contact me!"

Jobs can be free-lance, full-time, part-time, from your company or even just something you want to pay for or what ever as long as there's an exchange of goods for services.

You can make requested by asking if anyone is hiring, but if you asked two days ago and no one replied don't ask again until a few weeks have passed.  I don't want a thread that's three pages of "Someone give me a job!"

Also note, me or another forum admin has the right to come and change our rules of this thread at any time.

Here's a link to the Wizards job page, if anyone is interested in applying for a job as a Event Logistics Coordinator or a Operations Manager. The Event Logistics Coordinator would be involved with things like organized play events like Magic tournaments, as far as I know.

Right now they're hiring a Perms Assistant who'd work with me here at Allyn & Bacon. While I doubt that anyone's up for a move to Boston, I'll just post it here anyway.

You'd be in a great environment with the option of working summer hours (leaving at 12 on Fridays). Includes paid holidays and sick time right off the bat. A very nice manager, Bob Tonner, who is easy to work with. This is a Term of Project job, so it's not like you have to make a long-term deal. This is a great springboard job with full insurance (medial, dental, vision) benefits available. See the job description if this sounds interesting to you. Good luck!

Well I just applied for the Operations Manager at Wizards. I'm *almost* completely qualified, so that's pretty good, right?

I don't imagine you're anywhere near those people, Stacer, but if you are, put in a good word, eh?

Tage, I'm nowhere near the people who will interview you, but I can put in a good word for you to the person who handles the apps in HR. I completely forgot that I knew you--is your bachelor's in engineering? I thought it was computer something... computer engineering?

I don't suppose any of you could tell me if there is a free, online resume builder. The resume I have is -  basically - useless right now. I need to start from scratch, but I need TWO totally separate resumes, one to apply for customer service/tech support jobs and one to apply for nursing jobs.  (Not going to put all my eggs in one basket this time around...)

The best way to build a resume is to look at a lot of resumes. Failing that, MOnster has a fairly decent one as far as what information to include. LDS Employment Services will also talk to you about this, if there's an office nearby (I believe you need to get a referral from your bishop first though).

It was, in fact, computer engineering, a close cousin of electrical engineering.

I agree with SatanEhlers and would also had that you should have several friends and family members review your resumes. Everyone's input counts for something on a resume because you don't know who you will be hiring. For a more professional resume (like nursing), see if you can have someone within the field review your resume for you.

I'm hiring, but the pay sucks.  And you have to be an instructional design grad student at USU.  

But if you meet those qualifications, give me a ring.  :)

And you probably have to live in Utah Valley, huh? Or I'd send J.T. over.
