de-job-vu all over again...
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...

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!
