I was fired from my job back in October. 60% my fault and 40% company fault in my opinion. That's the short short version. PM if you'd like the long version.

It's been an experience in part to the mind numbing number of jobs I've applied to since then (over 60). I'm sure I'll be back to work sooner rather than later.

Zekki, check Kiewit. Our oldest son, Chris works for them. They do mining, tunneling etc etc. They're nation wide and huge. I can hook you up with Chris's phone or e-mail. He's a project manager working out of Omaha.

No problem. They're a privately held corp too and after 5 years you start getting bonuses in stock towards the retirement plan. They seem to treat their peeps really good. I'll PM ya Chris's e-mail and phone.

I so wish, plant firing up 4 new jobs , no observing for a while, of course as soon as things slow down ,itll be cloudy....hehehehehehe




I'm on the opposite end of the spectrum; out of work and plenty of time to do late night observing sessions. I just need the weather to cooperate with me.




Geez, Zach. That's no fun. I hope you get back to the living soon. Have you considered moving to find a position?

David

Thanks! Yeah its been a drag, but I just got to keep my head up.
Luckily I have many things to take my mind off of the daunting job hunting task.

A majority of the jobs I've applied for are out of state.I would like to get into the aerospace or related industry. I've applied to a total of 66 jobs as of today. Which encompasses 15 states, and 3 other countries. Looking for a job is a full time job in it self.

That's very encouraging. A lot of people looking for work don't want to move and that severly limits options. Any nibbles?

I love Ohio and would stay if I could. I would prefer to stay east of the Mississippi if I can. I would love to move to Florida. I have a lot of family down there, but I'll go wherever work can be found/.

I've had two interviews for different jobs at Chesapeake Energy. No luck with either.

I'm hopeful one of these Aerospace companies takes a chance a mining engineer like myself. I'm still optimistic.

I wish you the best too, Zach. I have a good feeling though that your education and experience will eventually land you a good position. The job search is really tough these days, but being young and skilled is very desirable to employers.

Wow Zach.. didn't know about the job situation (I have not been keeping tabs like I should on the thread). Glad you are having a positive outlook.

I have been pretty darn busy with the band I am in. We have our first gig Saturday night if you guys want to watch. The venue is full, but you can watch it via live streaming. You will also be able to post comments that will be displayed on monitors at the venue which will be weird.

Still doing Astronomy and Atm'ing once skies clear and it gets warmer. I didn't get the garage done in time to allow myself the ability to be in the garage during the winter time.
