As many of you may know, monsteralice got laid off last Monday. Her company lost a contract (of course, they knew this was likely to happen and lied to her for a month... grrr...) We're not panicking... things could be a lot worse. But (needless to say) we're hoping that she gets a new job as fast as possible.

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

Her qualifications:

- technical writer and editor with 25+ years of experience
- completed Customs and Border Patrol background investigation (5 years; much stricter than usual DHS)
- 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...

Wow, I didn't know, but I spent up until wed in the hospital.

Hugs to you and her and we'll place a dollar on our alter.

She hadn't posted anything on it, just told some people in conversation!

Thanks!

Hope you're feeling better...

Get her to send me her resume and I'll pass it along to my company as well as CSC in Alexandria, which is doing a DHS project.

Will do! Your email is [yourname] at gmail dot com, right?

Thanks!

I do hope she finds something soon.

There are good contracting opportunities for people with her skills. Contact Gene Ginther (ginther@stellarsystems.com) and Jack Corley (corley@aticorp.org) for some leads.

I'll pass that along, thanks!

Hugs and good luck; I will poke around and see what is open where I am contracting now.

I'll see if we have any writing positions coming up.

oh holy shit i didn't know. so sorry. i'd say look at my place but we are facing another round of layoffs ourselves.

Make sure she sends me her resume, I have two recruiters "on file."

Wyle has two technical writing positions "locally" One in Suitland, one in Patuxent, a bit of a haul, but if she's interested, let me know.

Passed it on to her... thanks!

No clue whether there are any positions currently, but my manager (one of our two VPs) said by all means get her resume. Even if we don't have anything internally, we sometimes get requests from our customers to help find people. Probably [user.tsm][at][gmail] is the best address to send it to.

Thanks!

Who should she send it attention to?

And is "user dot tsm" the literal email address, or something that I'm not parsing properly because it's Monday? ;-)

thanks again...

You can type user dot tsm as it's written above. And that's one of my email addresses, one that's semi-public and thus suitable for an open LJ comment. :) It's also the one I'm most likely to check from work. I'll forward the resume to the two VPs with my own comments; they tend to like personal recommendations. The one who deals with most of the hiring stuff is out this week, but it'll be there for him when he gets back.

OK, I passed it along to her. Thanks!

Sorry to hear that. I'll be pulling for you both.

Did this result in an actual security clearance, or just a "you're cleared to work in this office/on this project" result>

The latter, alas... she'd love to have a clearance; so many of the jobs out there require one.

But the background investigation is a major hurdle for getting a clearance, at least.

Well, yes and no. If she applies to a job that initiates a clearance investigation (even CBP) the entire clearance process is its own juggernaut, and will be started (over) from the beginning, and done by OPM (for almost all agencies).

She says it's a selling point...
