My wife and I need your help.
 
As Phobia, Pink, Monty and Stevie already know, Mrs. OnTheWarpath58 lost her job back in September. Needless to say, things have been rough lately, between this and her father having his 3rd bypass surgery and also having a pacemaker installed in December.

It's never a good time to lose a job, but it's extremely difficult to find work late in a calendar year. We're hoping that 2008 brings about an opportunity for her, and I'm hoping someone out there might be able to get her in touch with someone who appreciates her talents.

Her background is in the Commercial Construction industry, in Business Development. She's been in the industry since the early '90's, and has worked on/landed some monster construction jobs in the Midwest, including the Scottrade Center, EJ Dome, Ameristar Casino, and numerous other hospitals, hotels, museums, etc.

If anyone knows of someone at J.E. Dunn, Black and Veatch, or another General Contractor, please PM me.

While the majority of her experience is in the Construction industry, she's also held positions as VP of Sales and Marketing for a printing/document company, and is excellent at expanding sales and increasing business/revenue.

We're open to moving, whether it be KC or anywhere else.

We know it's a longshot, but it never hurts to spread the word.

TIA.

Unfortunately, I won't be much help (unless she wants to come work at Rain Man, Inc. But I wish you guys the best of luck.

Thanks.

If Mr. Rain Man could meet her salary requirements, we'd be there.



:D

Try looking at the HNTB website. They are a design firm but are always hiring especially in the KC area. They have a lot of positions in the Federal group in Kansas City. Let me know if you are interested.

I know where she can get a job planting tulips...
































Sorry, but you knew it was coming eventually. I figured I would get it out of the way.

Thanks for the info.

I'll have her look on their website.

I wish you and your wife much luck. I lost my job in November in residential home design but found work in commercial construction. It took 5 weeks and I thought it would never end but now it's all good. I wish I could help but I'm not near your area.

Thanks, Michael.

We are open to relocating for the right position, if you know/hear of anything, shoot me a PM.

She's always welcome at Edgewood Construction. Unfortunately, nobody is paid well there - not even the owner.

If you pay in ribs, jambalaya and a roof over our heads, it be the best offer we've gotten thus far.

Honestly, if my growth in the past year is any indication of future growth I'll be ready for her in a couple years. I've gone from just me to running a couple of crews. I've even been busy the entire winter which is amazing. We've been very blessed.

No really though, if you guys would consider coming and hanging out for a couple months to see what happens I'd talk about it. I've done enough on the commercial side to know that's probably where I need to be if I ever expect to make any money in this industry.

Don't know anyone at those companies or in the construction business but I'll keep my ear to the ground. Anything I can do let me know.
