I am an architect. Presently working for a design-build firm, but waiting for the economy to rebound to start something up with a few friends & co-workers.

Need any concrete cut? I work for a selective demolition company. I work indoors, though, as an Office Lackey.

You're in Hawai'i too? If so, then absolutely. We do a ****-ton of commercial and Industrial renovations and often times they require demolition.

I don't know just why, but I suddenly feel a bit insulted.

You are certainly no 'Robin'... We can be co-Batmans.

Eh.. I missed your locale. If a job's big enough, though, we'll handle it (inter)nationally: dams, nuclear power plants, coal-fired plants, etc.

Passed the Polygraph and was told by other agents that I was a shoe in, only to receive a letter questioning a neck/back injury I listed on my app. Yes, 10 months into the process they JUST FREAKING REALIZE that I listed that I had a serious injury in highschool and now wanted me to see an Ortheopedic Surgeon. I did, he gave me a clean bill of health, and 2 weeks later I receive a letter that I am no longer a candidate. Talk about completely jerking me around. I probably would have hated my initial assignment anyway. They told me I would be assigned to the Whitehouse as Security Detail which would require standing for most of the time. The hours I was told I would be working for the first year would be horrible as well. I make much more now that I would have had I gotten that job so no big loss.

I am a senior Electrical Engineer at Rowan University. I am currently working on my master's thesis which is in the biomedical signal processing field; however, my area of research interest involves biomedical signal processing, speech signal processing and pattern recognition in neural network architecture.

I also currently am employed at Lockheed Martin as an intern in Moorestown, NJ working on the cabling design of various naval ships (both domestic and foreign), which is not at all what I want to do with the rest of my life - hence the pursuit of a masters.

When all is said and done I want to have my PhD and either be a head design engineer in one of the fields mentioned above or working as a professor.

I certainly am! I currently work in a casino but the drive from Philly to Atlantic City is getting old. I've been looking in the Philly area for the last couple months or so but haven't found anything yet. I mostly work the help desk and monitor systems.

Can I send you my resume?

Recently graduated with a degree in Biomedical Engineering, with a concentration in Biomechanics and Human Performance.

Currently working as a 'Project Engineer' basically and AutoCAD/machine programmer for S&W Race Cars.

Looking for a new job if anyone knows of any positions in manufacturing, industrial consulting, surgical implant/tool design, or sports equipment design.

Dream job is to take a few sports equipment designs that I am working on patenting and build the next Nike-like empire. Already made business cards:


I don't check the email though, so don't try and contact me there if you have a job opportunity...

I'm currently at University of Glamorgan in Wales finishing a BA (Hons) Business Excellence - Marketing degree. Before coming here I completed a marketing diploma at a college in Canada, while working part-time at Colt Canada as a Contracts Adminstrator selling mostly C7 and C9 auto/semi auto weapon systems to various governments, as well as part-time working for the Kitchener Rangers as a Game Operations intern, running the events etc that take place throughout a game.

When i'm done school i'll be looking for marketing work in the hockey industry in some capacity.

Craigslist is your friend. Scour the site and send out a resume to every job listing that even mildly interests you, you're bound to get a bite.
