    Thundergod needs a job

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Some of you might remember that my contract wasnt renewed Christmas 2008.
    It took 6 months to find work, strangely enough, back with the same mob.
    Well they did it again this Christmas just gone and Im looking for work again.

    Dec / Jan is a quiet time for jobs but the market should be back in full swing now.

    Over the last few weeks my hunting slowed a little as my daughter got married last Saturday and it took priority for a few days.

    Bad news also in that my wife was fired when she went back to work on Tuesday.
    Shed had a few days off to help with the wedding and aftermath.
    It was her first job in over 6 years since she was hurt in a bank robbery.

    Obviously that now places us in a less than desirable financial situation and Im pulling out all stops to find myself another job.

    Im a Quality Assurance guy.
    Process Improvement etc.
    Ive mostly audited IT projects against project management guidelines and Im also a qualified ISO Lead Auditor in Quality Management Systems.
    Lately Ive been involved in software testing and defect management.

    Over the years Ive done many things and this is where Ive ended up.
    I spent 20 years in a bank (including IT and Help Desks) and did a lot of lending in that time.

    After moving into IT I transitioned to a multi-national "Enterprise Services" company.

    My experience skill set is eclectic.
    Ive been able to do anything Ive been asked to.

    Right now I dont need the dream job, just anything to keep the wolf from the door.
    Ideally Id need a practical employer who is willing to take me on now and utilise everything I have to their benefit with the understanding that if thay arent paying me what Im worth that I would have to take something better if it came along.

    Ive had enough of "youre overqualified" etc etc.
    I cant get my head around that one as Im willing to work and so many obviously arent.

    If anyone has any leads to jobs or "genuine" recruiters (not the usual number crunchers) please PM me with details.

    Any kind of office job should be easily handled by me.

    A detailed summary of my experience can be found at http://au.linkedin.com/in/theodoregalanis

    Thanks.

    Re: Thundergod needs a job

    Yes haz but they have stupid rules at my previous employer.
    I cant go back within 6 months.
    I actually had one large project lined up and a few small ones for 2 months but it seems some of the small ones were iffy.

    Ive applied for a couple of full time jobs there as that may get around the 6 month thing but Im not holding my breath.

    Hi TG,
    The many arms of the company I work for are always looking for merchandisers and mystery shoppers, PM me if you or your wife would like the contact details, it is an online application but I know there is work available.

    TG... How do you manage the uncertainty ?

    Am off to see HR to day, as I look to be boarding a similar boat in the near future...
