    Yea, so today my mom was laid off from her job as Title Officer at Lawyers Title Insurance Co. :?

    Not to mention, I have been out of a job since Summer '09, so if anyone has a job or knows someone who needs a person to work from 15:30 - Midnight (M-F) and all day (Sat-Sun) and the employer is located in Tacoma, University Place, Steilacoom or Lakewood, let me know.


    This is more for my mom though, so if anyone knows anyone who works for a title insurance company and that company is or could be looking to hire someone with a lot of experience, let me know.

    PM me if you have direct references and/or phone numbers for potential employers.

    I also meant to say that, I am going through Computer Networking and Information Systems Security, with a focus on Information Security.

    If you know of anyone who needs an entry level technician or something similar, let them/me know.

    If you're a kickass ASP / .NET coder, I can get you a good-paying job in Maine (telecommuting from anywhere is a possibility).

    Check usajobs.gov. The stimulus money is hitting and many Federal agencies are hiring temp workers (full-time, 15 month terms). You need to have your app up and ready to go for a lot of the openings.

    Some of the positions could be extended IF funding develops, or they could back fill permanent positions from these slots as they become available.

    I kind of hate Express right now. Sure they've cycled me through jobs over the yearbut they tend to put me in weird work environments that are a waste of my time and theirs. I need a better way to make money than wondering if my next work week will be more than 2.5 hours and surrender unemployment insurance when the job is gone. I would work at Sea-Tac but I refuse to be there until they fix their security policy.

    Not to say that isn't the thing for you. Goodness noes.

    USAJobs has some decent stuff. I'm sure TSA is hiring. Might be the kind of thing you'd like. I know I didn't.

    Took the test last week, a lady called me to ask about the selective services thing since I marked "no".

    A couple days ago I registered (required for govt job), it's a felony if you don't register (18-25).....

    Test isn't too hard, only thing is, it's most mostly a 5-10 week job.

    This may be more ofr you. But its very well open for your mom too. If you're interested in something that will be stable you can check into the WA Army National Guard. there ARE full time options, and there is a 20,000 dollar enlistment bonus to new service members. also there is business ops, such as a grant that paid up to 40k dollars for someone trying to start or open a new business.



    It's a thought to kick around. if you're interested shoot me a PM and we'll talk.

    -That goes for anyone.

    I hope you don't take it personal but I see comedy in odd situations.
    Sorry to hear your dreams shattered I do know what that is like and it sucks.

    It's all good... My life is great, so I have no complaints nor regrets.. I make comedy as much as possible with my issues (all I have is a head twitch, no random swearing outburst... THANK GOD).. There is nothing I have not heard and laughed at in regards to me...

    Some old tried and true tips for the job hunter:

    Make finding a job your current job. Start early and put in an entire day, all week long until successful. Jobs won't find you lying on the couch.

    A good haircut, some clean clothes, and a well thought out resume, even if all you are looking for is a job in a warehouse or as a janitor. You'll go closer to the head of the line than the "slobs" that wander through.

    Be sincere in your desire to work for the place you are applying. If the potential employer feels you are just dropping off another "app" it will just go in the stack.

    Be willing to accept a job that is available even if it isn't exactly what you were initially looking for. It just might surprise you and you'll like it. Heck, I like making money better than not.

    Keep at the hunt and don't get discouraged.



    As a person that used to hire people as part of his job, employers are always looking for people that will do a good job. Sometimes they have someone that they are just keeping until someone better comes along. You could well be that person.

    Take a tip from one of the "Money Guru's" Dave Ramsey. Delivering Pizzas is always a way to earn some money until you find a better job.

    Over the years (over 50 as a working person) I have had times of unemployment. By getting out an looking immediately I have been fortunate that none lasted more than a week or so without having "some work". Even when I had a job that was less than what I wanted it to be, I kept looking and also kept working. As a result I was able to finally retire with very few periods of unemployment, regardless of the economic times. Good times just means that finding a job might be easier. When times are like this it just means more work in finding something. The jobs are still out there.

    Good Luck.
