Looking for a new job!

Anyone know of anyone hiring in the Fort Worth, Irving,Arlington area?

My Company is relocating our Corporate Office to Houston. Due to my family being here i don't want to accept the transfer.

I'm currently the US Safety Compliance Coordinator and have experience in the Oil and Gas Industry. I can email my resume if you can help me out.

Take the transfer, pretend you are looking forward to it and look for something locally. Even go so far as to take a 6 month lease in Houston just in case it takes a while to find a job in DFW.

I would be concerned that the company would let me go as soon as they figured out that I wasn't all that excited about relocating. It seems like a shitty thing to do to the company but they wouldn't think twice about putting itself before you. You shouldn't think twice either.

I have a little girl, I rather find something here before being transfered. I have a couple of months before transfers will start.

Odds are, you can find something in your field that pays better in Houston.

You asked what good pay is. Twenty + dollars an hour based on experience. You have no mortgage experience so you would start at 20$ an hour.

UGH! I feel sorry for the people that unemployed. I have been applying like crazy and have not heard a peep. Seems like the only way to get in anywhere is to know someone.

I work from home when my child is sick, but i doubt they will let me do it fulltime. The "new" US President comes in today. I think i will try to talk to him. Either way i still have to find a new job. In order to move up now, i would have to move to Houston...and at this point, money is just not worth it.

Best of luck everyone; it's tough out there. I am busy as hell, but I will offer to look at your resume if you'd like suggestions/another pair of eyes to check it over.

IMHO after working out here in Midland/Odessa on a few Cisco related projects and talking with these guys - the oil/gas field seems very volatile.

Basically, if I worked in that field I'd have to be willing to relocate as needed it seems. However, at least in Midland/Odessa - having experience in that field is a major plus if you're willing to relocate there you'd probably be able to find something.

I don't work in the field, i work in the office. Although i travel to location for trainings in such, i dont work in the field. I basically make sure our company is compliant with all safety regulations, risk management, safety reporting, training, alerts...etc.

Yeah, by "field" I meant industry, career field, company in oil/gas...etc. Around here they complain that unless you've worked for a company in the industry, you won't get in. i.e. you could be the best at what you do and you've worked in every industry but oil/gas and you're considered less then a less skilled person who has worked in the industry.

I don't know first hand, just what I've been told multiple times. Either way...does not matter I guess if you don't want to relo.

If it was around here and just another city like Dallas, i would be ok. Houston is a shit hole, and too far from my family. Money is simply not worth being unhappy.

Good point, I should've mentioned in the Odessa/Midland area.

Where my Dad has a camp area (Sullivan County) it is apparently starting to boom there too. Farmers are making out, which makes me happy.

You hit the nail on the head right there. I was laid off back in July and picked up a new job just 2 weeks later. I'm really lucky but my resume is still floating around in cyberspace. I submitted to everywhere but the place that hired me was because I had previously worked with them on another project. Most of the places I'd sent resumes to never responded.

Oil and gas field is still strong, just not stupid like it was a few years ago....

Still lots of OT and pay if you are worth anything... Catch is most people in the industry aren't worth anything.

Hell I just got a 20k a year pay raise, and expecting another one in the 1st quarter of next year.
