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.

Thanks for all the congratualtions, guys.

FTR, we're not moving.

The company's Corporate HQ is in Dayton. Her final interview was with the Senior VP, who was originally supposed to come down here to meet with her. His schedule got jammed up, and he asked if she would be willing to come up, which of course was an obvious yes.

We even offered to drive to save them the money ($1300 to fly STL-Dayton on late notice?) without knowing the benefits. They paid all expenses, obviously, but paid us mileage as well. Wasn't expecting that, but at .50 per mile for a 850 mile RT, it was a pleasant surprise.....

As was the job offer, obviously.

I'm really glad to see that Sal landed a job!!
Yeah, there's something going on in June we're doing, but I can't remember what.

Is Phil having another BBQ?

And here we are, almost four years later, and back in the same position. She was let go this morning.

They actually had the balls to look her in the eye and say, "this isn't due to performance, you've done everything we've asked of you and more. But we need to cut overhead so we can pay out bonuses to the shareholders."

I wish I was kidding.

So here we go again, late in the calendar year, in a shitty economy.

Everything in the OP is still accurate, and she now has 3+ years of selling architectural and engineering services on her resume.

If anyone, anywhere has a lead, please share. We're open to moving for the right position.

****.

This is terrible news. I guess this means my traditional Christmas gift will not arrive this year? That's okay. My wife usually got mad at the mess the strippers left behind.

Wow. Shitty. Sorry to hear that.

Did they at least offer her some sort of severance package?
