In Search of New Opportunities

  • So I think it's time to really get out there and look for some new career opportunities.  I'm hoping to find something that combines my experience in marketing, finance and IT.  Maybe even includes a bit of surfing, song writing and beer brewing....come on, one can dream, right?
     
    Anyways,  I could really use any of the following:
     
    • Sites you use that I may not know of
    • Advice you may have
    • Really great head hunters
    • Resume consultants (I've been out of the market for a while now)
    • Possibly even career consultant types that could provide a little guidance
      I'd really appreciate the help y'all.

  • This is good and I think your timing is spot on.
    If I think of something I will let you know.

  • Okay, since I received only one sort of response, it must mean that you want me to quit my job without a safety net and just travel world surfing for a year.  Sweet! I can do that. Thanks!
    You can't stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.

  • DO IT! my ability to think outside the box career-wise is very limited. i feel like my choices are very binary, as well. i-banking or quitting and surfing. there is no middle ground.

  • Wow! Thanks for this thread  i'm in the same boat although I may be forced to change jobs by the end of summer. I'm thinking the finance industry may not be the best place to work right now. :(

    not necessarily. I manage IT projects. mostly software testing but also assist on requirements for the applications that get built. given the scrutiny and oversight being put on the industry by the gov't and regulators job security seems pretty good right now.
    Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It's the transition that's troublesome.

  • same boat too Shacky.

    I use indeed.com that mines all the different job sites. I'm a digital workflow & publishing specialist amongst other things, sometimes I throw in a wildcard like "global digital" and I get some interesting results. Sent of heaps of resumes but no bites yet.
    New t-shirts available, check em out at

    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
