Anyone know of any cool jobs?

I still have my job, and it pays real good, and I love it. All except the traveling.

I currently am technical support for large scale postal automation projects... I train installation teams, fix machines when no one else can, train postal technicians how to properly work on our machines, do PR work when a postal site is not so happy with something a team may have done or has a problem with one of our machines.....

AAS in Electronics Engineering... have worked for Nokia, Motorola, Nortel, WorldCom, currently at Siemens...

Have project management experience, well travelled, on and on and on...

I tend to rise to the top of the heap anywhere I go.

I am just tired of the traveling and I see quite a bit of it coming up.

So.... I haven't even spruced up my resume yet, but if you know of a sweet high paying job that is challenging and rewarding, but will keep me at home, I would take a serious look at it.

My current job is primarily and in house position, but lately I haven't been so "in house" and it is starting to put a strain on my personal life..

Let me know !

You look like Bud Bundy.

Make up a few resume's and post them on Careerbuilder and Dice.com

When you see a job that you want to send a resume too, customize it for what they are looking for so it is not too general. I had like 4 or 5 on Careerbuilder when I got my last gig.

If you detial all your experience, it will make the resume too long and they get bored reading it all and just go to the next.

They've done studies you know.... 60% of the time, it works every time

I think they stopped using contract work, and the pay sucks for entry level Siemens workers.

No, we're not hiring right now. My pay doesn't suck by a long shot, and to tell ya the truth, I love what I do... but I got a taste of the home life, got into my house, started a relationship I would like to keep.... etc.

I have been doing alot of travelling lately and I have liked it a lot less than I used to..

I've got a fucking great job, but we're not hiring. It probably wouldn't be a good environment for you, either.

The biggest problem with this theory is that you have to apply to alot of jobs to get one or two people that are interested. When employers post jobs on the boards, they get 200-300 resumes a week, and they just don't have time to go thru them all. Its better to try and find a solid contact name and send them an email that is a little more personal than just hitting the apply button on the boards. Or better yet, finding an address and delivering your resume in person
