Journal: Contractor Needed

Journal by JobCenter
I have a fairly urgent need for a contractor in the Dallas area. The job is a web application for the business of a friend (fairly well-established, definitely not fly-by-night). It's probably a month's worth of work for an experienced person, working at the customer's site. He wants a high level of interaction. The development environment is ASP.NET, C#, and SQL Server. Contact me at the JobCenter e-mail.

Journal: Positions Wanted, April 5, 2004

Journal by JobCenter
I'm not meeting my goal of getting a new edition of this up every two weeks. If you find that you can't post to any of these entries, please feel free to use the e-mail address attached to the account. Also, the JEs will be marked as "No Foes", so you will need to be logged in to post (this account has no foes at present).

There are two new Positions Wanted entries in this section.

Due to the increasing length, the listing has been split into Positions Wanted and Employees Wanted. This also allows me to hand off half of the work. Contact remains the same - the e-mail address attached to this account, or posting a comment to one of the journal entries. I will try to get a new Employees Wanted entry up fairly soon, but it is somewhat stale, so I need to spend some time checking links.

The Projects Wanted section follows Positions Wanted, for people looking strictly for contract work.

An unidentified individual has recorded his experiences interviewing with the NSA. Very interesting reading; thanks to the person to provided the link in a JE (sorry, but I've forgotten precisely who posted the link). Warning: this is a fairly hefty PDF, and will take a while to download over a dialup connection. I think that it is worth the effort, however, and may be of use to anyone applying for a position where a security clearance is required.

Lodragandraoidh's JE about how to distinguish yourself as a computer professional is still recommended reading. Sometimes changing one's outlook, even a little, can make a big difference in a job search.

If you have submitted an entry, and the availability (either position or employee) has changed, please let me know. The process of reviewing the listings is an ongoing one.

Positions Wanted. The following individuals are seeking employment. Each listing contains a link to a comment that mentioned the individual's availability (which frequently contains additional detail about their experience), as well as a link to their user page. Please contact these people directly, by e-mail (if they provide a contact address) or by replying to the comment or the journal entry.
  • intermodal is also looking for work in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. He does tech/administrator work for unix, linux, and all versions of windows. He also has Software QA experience. He would also be interested in any fire department that is willing to provide training; he already has experience in that area, being currently with a volunteer department.

He also has quite a bit of experience with cross-platform integration, as well as good skills in troubleshooting and documentation. He is open to a mid-level position, particularly one that would allow him to improve his skills. In his words, "a decent living and a chance to learn new skills." Omega996 is currently located in Southern California, but is open to relocation for the right position. Contact via a reply to this JE or e-mail to the JobCenter account.

Projects Wanted. Developers or others looking for non-permanent, contract work. Where there is any overlap (i.e., anyone who is looking for full-time permanent but willing to accept contract), the listing will appear in the Positions Wanted section.

  • m0smithslash is looking for supplemental work, particularly projects that he can do at home. He is experienced in Java and C++, as well as a variety of other areas. Check out his journal entry for more specifics - it's one of the best brief summaries of experience I've seen.
  • Ethelred Unraed is looking for projects in Web design and screen design. He has a very good level of experience with Web development, and speaks several languages (English and German fluently). Read his reply to the last Job Board, and check out his web site (referenced there) for more information.

The boilerplate:

Thanks to everyone for supporting this effort. If you have an issue with your listing, let me know ASAP (e-mail or IM might be best). If you have a position, are seeking a job, or have comments about the format, please post a reply to this JE. Suggestions are always welcome, by e-mail or by comment. I aim to have every opening or job need mentioned in a JE within 24 hours of my becoming aware of it. Subsequent JEs will repeat entries from prior job boards that are still open.

Journal: Job Resources, February 16, 2004 8

These were last posted back in October, so I thought that it would be worth repeating at this point. I will incorporate any additions in replies or e-mail.

I have added a section at the end for pure contract work sites (many of the "job" sites also offer contract work).

Administrative note: The "Job Board" entries will probably be split into an Employees Wanted section and a Positions Wanted section. Part of this is with the goal of getting someone else to help with one of the two (probably the first). The other is to reduce the "chunk" required for each update, and so (hopefully) to increase the update rate.

General-purpose job search:

Recruiters:

Both of these are recommended by eglamkowski as "responsive".

Apologies for the long hiatus between journal entries. Job + side contract + daughter's college and financial aid applications + life in general has proven to be somewhat time-consuming. I am in the process of re-verifying the employees wanted entries from the last post. If you had a "Position Wanted" entry, and are no longer looking for a job, please reply to this JE or e-mail me.

If anyone is interested in making this account a joint endeavor, please send me an e-mail. It would be better to avoid long intervals between JEs.

Journal: Job Board, December 16, 2003 1

Journal by JobCenter
Job Board, December 16, 2003 There is a new section, Projects Wanted, to help out anyone looking strictly for contract work. This section debuts with listings from m0smithslash and Ethelraed_Unraed.

The Positions Wanted section has three fewer listings; one (m0smithslash) has moved to the Projects section, and two have landed new positions (coincidentally, both in the Seattle area). See below for more details.

SlashChick highlights the Employees Wanted section, looking for a sysadmin to help in her web hosting business (simpli.biz). Counterpane is still hiring (based on the latest Crypto-Gram, dated yesterday), as well. I have not had time to update the majority of listings in this section, however, so it will probably be useful to click through to the specific corporate listings.

blinder's employer, the Seva Group, is in desperate need of J2EE, ColdFusion, and C#/C++ developers in the Baltimore/Washington, DC area. See the entry below for details (I'd add an internal link, but it does not seem to work).

An unidentified individual has recorded his experiences interviewing with the NSA. Very interesting reading; thanks to the person to provided the link in a JE (sorry, but I've forgotten precisely who posted the link). Warning: this is a fairly hefty PDF, and will take a while to download over a dialup connection. I think that it is worth the effort, however, and may be of use to anyone applying for a position where a security clearance is required.

Lodragandraoidh's JE about how to distinguish yourself as a computer professional is still recommended reading. Sometimes changing your outlook, even a little, can make a big difference to your job search.

Saige is going to work in Seattle. Congratulations! Her entry has been (happily) removed from the "Positions Wanted" section.

Xerithane has also found work in the Seattle area, though not (apparently) with the same company as Saige. This senior C++ and Perl programmer is off the market for now. Sorry, HR ladies!

If you have submitted an entry, and the availability (either position or employee) has changed, please let me know. The process of reviewing the listings is an ongoing one.

The "useful links" have been moved to a separate journal entry, due to increasing size. Look in the JobCenter JEs from October, 2003; there have been no updates since then.

Positions Wanted. The following individuals are seeking employment. Each listing contains a link to a comment that mentioned the individual's availability, as well as a link to their user page. Please contact these people directly, by e-mail (if they provide a contact address) or by replying to the comment.

  • SiliconJesus works at Digex. The company has job listings posted here.

These listings change, so take a look for yourself.

  • According to blinder, his employer, The Seva Group, has urgent openings for J2EE, ColdFusion, and C#/C++ developers in the Baltimore/Washington, DC area. Applicants with security clearances are particularly sought; even a lapsed clearance might be helpful, providing it can be reactivated. The J2EE developer position was listed earlier, and requires 3+ years of experience including Websphere. It is at a client site in the Baltimore area. ColdFusion developers with professional experience are also urgently sought. Read the post for more details. If you are interested in any of these positions, reply to this post or e-mail JobCenter (I can forward the mail to him). Since he just got an unexpected raise, this might be a company worth looking into.

Fujitsu has several positions available, including experienced Documentum (enterprise content management) experts, data architects, and entry level IT work. E-mail CVs to slashdot(at)jawtheshark.com; he will direct them to the proper destination. There are positions open in both Belgium and Luxembourg. JTS recommends Luxembourg, for certain financial reasons. I've been reading his journal for a few months now, and I have to say that it sounds like a nice place to live.

The positions are: Sr. Software Engineer, Sr. Software Engineer - Embedded Systems, Sr. Software Engineer, and Sr. DSP Engineer - Wireless Communications.

The Positions Wanted section has one new listing; m0smithslash is looking for part-time/moonlighting work.

There are two new listings under employees wanted, one from eglamkowski and one that I added after browsing the Counterpand site. There are a bunch of software engineering posisions in the first listing, and Counterpane has several security-related postions.

blinder's employer, the Seva Group, is in desperate need of J2EE, ColdFusion, and C#/C++ developers in the Baltimore/Washington, DC area. See the entry below for details (I'd add an internal link, but it does not seem to work).

Lodragandraoidh's JE about how to distinguish yourself as a computer professional is still recommended reading. Sometimes changing your outlook, even a little, can make a big difference to your job search.

Saige, as of this writing, is on an interview trip to the Pacific Northwest. Read her journal for the story. We should be getting an update any time now...

If you have submitted an entry, and the availability (either position or employee) has changed, please let me know. The process of reviewing the listings is an ongoing one.

The "useful links" have been moved to a separate journal entry, due to increasing size.

Positions Wanted. The following individuals are seeking employment. Each listing contains a link to a comment that mentioned the individual's availability, as well as a link to their user page. Please contact these people directly, by e-mail (if they provide a contact address) or by replying to the comment.
  • RevMike has experience with enterprise financial systems, using Java, J2EE, PL/SQL, Pro*C, Perl, and XML. He is located in the New York City/Long Island area.
  • intermodal is also looking for work in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. He does tech/administrator work for unix, linux, and all versions of windows. He also has Software QA experience. He would also be interested in any fire department that is willing to provide training; he already has experience in that area, being currently with a volunteer department.
  • buffer-overflowed has a variety of experience, including C++ development, Unix and network administration, and help desk, on-site, and desktop support. He is currently located in Charleston, WV, but may be open to relocation.
  • heliocentric is an experienced admin and IT support person in the Harrisburg area. He is particularly interested in working in the information security area, where he has had some past experience. He would also be interested in a position in the Reading area.
  • aridhol is a programmer with three years experience in C, C++, and Java, located in Winnipeg. He is a Sun-certified Java programmer with a CS degree from Camosun College in Victoria, BC.

He also has four years of PHP/MySQL development for web applications and community-based websites, and has a working knowledge of Python. He is willing to learn anything else required.
  • Judg3 is a Windows jack of all trades, specializing in enterprise system and application management and deep level troubleshooting. His strength is taking an assignment and bringing it in on-time and under-budget. He's also at the power-user level with FreeBSD and Linux. There's more detail in the referenced comment, I'd strongly sugest giving it a read. He's looking in the Milwaukee area, land of beer and sausages (mmmmmm, Usinger's), and home of former car salesman Bud Selig.
  • Interrobang is looking for work as a technical writer. She has two years of direct experience, a Master's degree in Language and Professional Writing.

  • ces is an experienced Unix system/network admin. His experience includes a variety of Unix-based OSes, as well as networking hardware. He also has some admin and troubleshooting experience with Windows. Check the linked comments for more detailed examinations of his credentials. He is looking for work in the Seattle area.

Employees Wanted. Pretty much the same format. When submitting for this section, please include a link any on-line job listing that is available.

  • SiliconJesus works at Digex. The company has job listings posted here. The current positions listing includes Unix Tech Ops - Internet Systems Administrator II (Washington/Metro), Tech Tier III, IT HelpDesk (Washington/Metro), and Systems Security Operations Engineer III (Washington/Metro). These listings change, so take a look for yourself.

  • According to blinder, his employer, The Seva Group, has urgent openings for J2EE, ColdFusion, and C#/C++ developers in the Baltimore/Washington, DC area. Applicants with security clearances are particularly sought; even a lapsed clearance might be helpful, providing it can be reactivated. The J2EE developer position was listed earlier, and requires 3+ years of experience including Websphere. It is at a client site in the Baltimore area. ColdFusion developers with professional experience are also urgently sought. Read the post for more details.

The positions are: Sr. Software Engineer, Sr. Software Engineer - Embedded Systems, Sr. Software Engineer, and Sr. DSP Engineer - Wireless Communications.
  • According to Blackneto, CIBER is a decent place to work. Particularly inasmuch as they seem to compensate consultants well. Their job postings are available online. They also have a referral program, so contact BlackNeto if you plan to follow up on this.
  • eglamkowski's company is also hiring. There are positions in Georgia, Kansas, and Virginia. The positions are primarily for software engineers, but there are some others open. Contact him directly by e-mail, or I would be glad to route a message to him.

blinder's employer, the Seva Group, is in desperate need of J2EE, ColdFusion, and C#/C++ developers in the Baltimore/Washington, DC area. See the entry below for details (I'd add an internal link, but it does not seem to work).

Please note the new entry under Employees Wanted, from Blackneto and CIBER.

Lodragandraoidh posted a journal entry about how to distinguish yourself as a computer professional. Sometimes changing your outlook, even a little, can make a big difference to your job search. There's some good stuff here; give it a read.

Of the featured changes from the last JE, Interrobang is still having a very tough time, but Saige has reason for guarded optimism. Tech writers may have been particularly hard-hit by the slump (based on an informal survey of my acquaintances; how's THAT for statistical rigor!); let's hope that she finds someone soon to appreciate her talents (an employer, not a partner). Perhaps the growing economy will translate through to the jobs sector.

If you have submitted an entry, and the availability (either position or employee) has changed, please let me know. The process of reviewing the listings is an ongoing one.

Bad news, in the form of a layoff, for Interrobang; her entry has been changed from "looking for more fulfilling work" to simply "looking for work". Of course, more fulfilling work would be a nice bonus. There is a new entry for Saige, who is looking to relocate from Chicago to Seattle. According to Jack William Bell, the job market in the Seattle area is improving.

If you have submitted an entry, and the availability (either position or employee) has changed, please let me know. I am in the process of reviewing the listings.

Sorry for the delay in posting this, but I have been busy with a trip to Boston and a new job.

The "useful links" have been moved to a separate journal entry, due to increasing size.

There is one entry in Positions Wanted (Xerithane) and one modification (ces) and a modification to the entry in Employees Wanted that jawtheshark submitted. dubiousdave has apparently accepted a position with the BAISD, and is likely off the market. His entry will be removed when he confirms this.

The "useful links" have been moved to a separate journal entry, due to increasing size.

Zarf has posted the second entry describing his experiences as a contractor in the international arena. Highly recommended reading, if you are considering such a position.

There are two new entries in Positions Wanted, Interrobang and ces.

Positions Wanted. The following individuals are seeking employment. Each listing contains a link to a comment that mentioned the individual's availability, as well as a link to their user page. Please contact these people directly, by e-mail (if they provide a contact address) or by replying to the comment.

  • intermodal is also looking for work in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. He does tech/administrator work for unix, linux, and all versions of windows. He also has Software QA experience. He would also be interested in any fire department that is willing to provide training; he already has experience in that area, being currently with a volunteer department.
  • buffer-overflowed has a variety of experience, including C++ development, Unix and network administration, and help desk, on-site, and desktop support. He is currently located in Charleston, WV, but may be open to relocation.
  • heliocentric is an experienced admin and IT support person in the Harrisburg area. He is particularly interested in working in the information security area, where he has had some past experience. He would also be interested in a position in the Reading area.
  • dubiousdave is an experienced Solaris, Tru64, and Linux admin, living in Austin, Texas. His work experience is primarily on Sun hardware, ranging from ancient workstations to E220s to E6800s. He knows both SunCluster and TruCluster, and, most importantly, makes good coffee.

  • Jellybob is looking for a junior sysadmin position in southern England.

He also has four years of PHP/MySQL development for web applications and community-based websites, and has a working knowledge of Python. He is willing to learn anything else required.
  • Judg3 is a Windows jack of all trades, specializing in enterprise system and application management and deep level troubleshooting. His strength is taking an assignment and bringing it in on-time and under-budget. He's also at the power-user level with FreeBSD and Linux. There's more detail in the referenced comment, I'd strongly sugest giving it a read.

Employees Wanted. Pretty much the same format. When submitting for this section, please include a link any on-line job listing that is available.

  • SiliconJesus mentioned two positions in his department at Digex. Digex is hiring for other positions as well; the job listings are here.
  • Servo posted an available position in his journal last month. The position is still available, and it sounds like they could really use some help. Here is a direct link to the job listings page; the specific job is Tier II (Site Supervisor) for New York City.
  • FortKnox needs experienced J2EE coders, experienced project management, or experienced business analysts. The experience is an absolute requirement. These are located in the Cincinnati area.
  • According to blinder, his employer, The Seva Group, has an opening for a J2EE developer, with 3+ years of experience including Websphere. The job is at a client site in the Baltimore area. If you are interested, reply to this post or e-mail JobCenter (I can forward the mail to him). Since he just got an unexpected raise, this might be a company worth looking into. Too bad they're not in Dallas.
  • jawtheshark works for Fujitsu Consulting in Luxembourg. Fujitsu has several positions available, including experienced Documentum (enterprise content management) experts, data architects, and entry level IT work. E-mail CVs to slashdot(at)jawtheshark.com; he will direct them to the proper destination. There are positions open in both Belgium and Luxembourg. JTS recommends Luxembourg, for certain financial reasons. I've been reading his journal for a few months now, and I have to say that it sounds like a nice place to live.

Flipdog is available now.

Zarf has written what looks like the first of a series describing his experiences as a contractor in the international arena. If you are considering such a position, reading this is mandatory. He's also soliciting some career advice here.

On a lighter note, read these ads very carefully before responding.

There are two changes in Positions Wanted. One new entry, Xandar01, and one deletion (I accepted an offer yesterday). Due to the excellent response, I will continue to maintain this account and the job board.

It isn't easy being the parent of a six-year-old. However, it's a pretty small price to pay for having somebody around the house who understands computers.
