The board shut my company down today. Just a bit of cleanup left....Anyone know of any IT or Telecom management jobs out there?? I am in the DFW area but have been working in Houston for the last year.
Lost my job in late '01, started my own business, doing well, but just today got a call from a headhunter and was thinking about rejoining the corporate world - steady $$, benefits, paid vacation, etc.
Your message reminded me about the benefits of working for yourself, and the risks that you face when you put faith in the ability of others to successfully run a business that you rely on, and give your blood, sweat and tears to.
Sorry to hear about the job situation. I'm just waiting for my job to move to Asia somewhere (I'm a sr. network engineer), and that looks like it's approaching.
I know the Phoenix IT market is picking up, because I'm watching it. We're actually looking for a new "Global WAN/LAN/Telecom Manager". Of course, I would have a hard time recommending my employer to anyone.
Yup, slim pickins in the MD/NOVA area. As for Texas, the only company out there I know of is Lacerte (no owned by Intuit) in Plano. But Like others have said, I have a hard time recommending my own company for fear my job will be outsourced to India. And I'm not even a Sr. Tech.
Yep, agreed. It's not my industry, but my father-in-law and two brothers-in-law (and one of their wives) are all in the high-tech sector - chip designer, some sort of wireless R&D guy, a manufacturing engineer and a Nortel veteran with about 35 years with the company in R&D. All have lost(and mostly also found) jobs in the last two years. Volatile market lately, but it's their thing and they love it.
I'm just a humble marketing/advertising type, in other words, no industry-specific skills or specialized knowledge to sell. A blessing and a curse, sometimes.
