de-job-vu all over again...
dream
evcelt
monsteralice got laid off again. Budget cuts, this time. Fortunately, she has 'til the end of the month. Once again, we're not panicking... things could be a lot worse. But once again (needless to say) we're hoping that she gets a new job as fast as possible.

So... if anyone knows of any process engineering/tech writing/editing jobs in the DC area, please let her or I know.

Her qualifications:

- process engineer, technical writer and editor with 25+ years of experience
- completed Customs and Border Patrol background investigation (5 years; much stricter than usual DHS)
- considerable experience in writing documentation (both software and hardware), processes and procedures, and process engineering
- considerable experience in the medical and biotech fields
- expert at Visio and the rest of the MS Office suite
- expert at ITIL and CMI methodologies

If you know anything relevant, you can contact her at [her last name] dot [her first name] at gmail dot com; her resume is up on Monster, as well.

Failing that, reposting this to boost the signal can't hurt.

And, of course- prayers, good thoughts, and "find a job mojo" are always appreciated...

Thanks...

My long-term plan is to make a bazillion dollars, then form some giant corporation solely to give employment to my friends. Good luck, m-alice!

Is she on Dice.com? If so, set up Search Agents to notify her of new openings. That way, she won't have to go trawling through them to find something good. I usually get between 2-5 hits every day.

I'm sure she already knows this, but remind her to update her posted resumes at least once a week. This moves it back up to the top of the pile.

I'll send "find a job" mojo if you'll send some to me!

Mojo and energy headed your way. I will keep my ears open.

Well damn, that sucks. Many hugs to you and MonsterAlice! I understand what it's like to get jerked around by new owners, etc - one of the reasons I am no longer working where I did for almost 20 years. My current company is hiring a lot of tech jobs, but I don't know if MonsterAlice would be interested, and doubt she would want to commute to Columbia (though some of the jobs can be done remotely I think) http://www.tenablesecurity.com/about/index.php?view=careers

Demongrrrl might be able to help with some recruiter references or something too - I know she had said she got a lot of calls about tech writing jobs in VA specifically.

Is she does not mind Sterling/Cascades; I know of one position as either employee at Neustar (neustar.biz/careers) or as a contractor at Neustar through Pivotal (Pivotal-IT.com/careers) working with really cool technical people (hopefully including me soon).

I am having trouble finding the exact job posting number on Neustar's site (they have ~50 jobs listed) - but I know exactly which manager to hand a resume to. They are looking for someone who is naturally curious.

thanks! your email is still snolan at yourfirstname+yourlastname dot org, right?

No, it is actually snolan AT scottnolan.org

I will be stopping in church today and will light a candle and send the prayers up for MA - hoping that this is just a short diversion to a job that is even better for her!
