Unhappy Employment !?

Well, this is my last resort.
I saw my job posted on Monster today, so I figure it
won't be long before I'm walked out the front door.
If any of you know of anyone looking to hire Network Engineers/ Network Administrators,
please reply or PM me.
I live in Beverly, and will travel anywhere within a 2 hour drive.
Thanks a lot.

I have been laid of since last Nov. It is difficult out there. What a cruel company to not at least let you know in advance. There are no jobs out there just low paying service jobs. Listen to the politicians and everythings is booming.

FlyFreak & FishHawk I wish you both good luck on the search. Having spent the last month trying to clean out & close the company I work for I wish I'd been locked out a month ago. Oh well 2 1/2 more days and its done. Anyone looking for a Mechanical Engineer?

I have a suggestion.

If all people who will be available during their next job search would please reply to this post, I would like to propose the founding of a "skunkworks" virtual company. For that matter anyone who can spare a few cycles.

We will then choose a problem to solve, then form a loose corporate unit (if at all) and print collaterals. Then we will attack the marketplace and see how far we can go.

I will gladly provide market strategy, web and media design, and ideas for projects to tackle.

If nothing else, everyone will be gainfully employed and it might look pretty good on the resume.

I am working three jobs at this time, but heck I can take on another. Any interest?

Juro, I've had a few thoughts along that line. It was going to be the long term safety net.

I hope more people respond. So far we have a mechanical engineer, a product marketer, a network engineer. Fishhawk - what's your speciality?

So far we can build something correctly as long as we identify the right market / sales opportunities and our office will have a kick ass intranet.

We need a manufacturing angle, but that can be 3rd party. Fullfillment and warehousing should not be a problem right away, but we will probably need a sales force unless the dotcom miracle blesses the little guy, which is the trend lately.

We will need a software engineer with eCommerce experience.

Muy Interesante

I can offer a strong background in strategy consulting and business systems analysis & design - developing value propositions & delivery systems, business process management (BPM), analysis & design...

A few years ago a bunch of us came up with a 'napkin deisgn' of an electronic stock trading system built entirely with shareware components. Never got built but would probably have worked!

Fully employed right now but always looking for new ideas to exercise the grey cells.

Juro,

Sign me up as your warehouse/logistics guy. After 10 years with the same distribution company, I was told that my services were no longer required.
Have been filling in some of my spare time with tying and selling spey and dee flies. Now I get to worry about things like finding silk gut, spey hackle, hooks, etc., etc., etc..

My company is hiring

All,

I work at a semiconductor company by the name of Allegro MicroSystems in Manchester, NH. We are looking for lots of electrical and a few mechanical engineers. We are also looking for technical marketing folks as well.

You can learn more about the company at www.allegromicro.com .

The job descriptions are located at http://www.allegromicro.com/employ/ .

The company has been around for a long time and is doing really well right now. I have worked there as a circuit designer for the past 6 years.

Oh, and it is on a nice pond that is full of largemouth and has a few brook trout!

Good luck to you all and feel free to e-mail me a resume at doogue@alum.dartmouth.org.

Mike

Regards,

Mike

Thumbs up Update...

I was correct.
My job and my co-workers job will be replaced with a single individual.
When I initially found the posting on Monster,
I took the job description to my HR department.
Needless to say they were QUITE unhappy.
With no bad performace evaluations to back them up (my Director and VP of IT),
they have no real basis for replacing us with a new employee.
I know I am an employee at will, but all hiring and dismissal (firing) has to been done thru HR.
This job posting was done under the radar, HR knew nothing about it.
After a few minutes of conversation, my HR rep was apologizing on behalf of the company, and was asking if I wanted to leave immediately with a severance,
or to stay and transition out with a severance. I opted for the latter, because there are a few people here near and dear to me who would be screwed if I just bailed. So the situation might pan out quite well after all....thanks to everyone for the advice and information....I really appreciate it.
I'll post more when I hear the final word.
