My wife and I need your help.

As Phobia, Pink, Monty and Stevie already know, Mrs. OnTheWarpath58 lost her job back in September. Needless to say, things have been rough lately, between this and her father having his 3rd bypass surgery and also having a pacemaker installed in December.

It's never a good time to lose a job, but it's extremely difficult to find work late in a calendar year. We're hoping that 2008 brings about an opportunity for her, and I'm hoping someone out there might be able to get her in touch with someone who appreciates her talents.

Her background is in the Commercial Construction industry, in Business Development. She's been in the industry since the early '90's, and has worked on/landed some monster construction jobs in the Midwest, including the Scottrade Center, EJ Dome, Ameristar Casino, and numerous other hospitals, hotels, museums, etc.

If anyone knows of someone at J.E. Dunn, Black and Veatch, or another General Contractor, please PM me.

While the majority of her experience is in the Construction industry, she's also held positions as VP of Sales and Marketing for a printing/document company, and is excellent at expanding sales and increasing business/revenue.

We're open to moving, whether it be KC or anywhere else.

We know it's a longshot, but it never hurts to spread the word.

TIA.

well, edgewood construction has a certain appeal to it...

but whatever you call yourself now, i'd still recommend you to anyone who's looking for excellent workmanship for a remodel, repair or new construction...

Thanks, Doug.

If you hear of anyone looking for someone to fill a sales/marketing/business development position, regardless of industry, let us know.

Thanks. It's been Edgewood for the past 3 years. Prior to that it was Good Help These Days and I let my Dad keep that name when I parted with him. Great business name but it has a handyman flavor that I don't like.

Unfortunately for you I'm now stocking those disposals I installed for you for $30 cheaper than Home Depot. Wish I could have saved you that money at the time.

If you don't mind, please head over to my website and drop some customer feedback. http://edgewoodconstruction.com/?page_id=12

My company might be on the prowl for a new business developer very soon. They are very picky about their BD's. This would be sales in IT Consulting. Her territory would most likely be focused on St. Louis (the company is in St. Louis)

Does she have any experience in sales for consulting companies?

My wife and I just had dinner and watched the MU/KU game last night with a couple and the guy is in a mgmt position for a const company here in KC - he was talking about working on a big project down on the plaza right now and being short on people. I really don't know if they're short of laborers or what (don't really know anything about const biz). My wife is friends with his wife and I just met him last night so I'll have my wife talk to her first to see what kind of help they're needing. Like I said, I don't know anything about that biz and there may not be an opportunity there, but I'll find out.

Phobia- Was looking at your site and saw that you offer tool rental. What kind of deal would you have on an angled floor nailer?

OP- I know one of the JE Dunn managers in Topeka. I can PM you his name if you'd like, but honestly, from my understanding of JED, EVERYTHING is decided in KC, so that's where the action is.

Are you kidding?

It's a non-issue. If this thread can help anyone out there find work, then so be it.

No apology necessary guys.

Thanks to those of you who have replied this far. We really appreciate it.

The HNTB lead looks pretty good, they are hiring a Senior Marketing Coordinator in KC right now, and that fits her profile perfectly.

Thanks everyone, and please, keep the ideas coming.

If the lead at HNTB doesn't work out, have her look at the ARAMARK website link below, as we have many good positions all over the country.

http://www.aramark.com/ContentTempla...&ChannelID=285

ARAMARK is a solid company with good benefits and plenty of personal growth opportunities.

Plenty of Construction opportunities out here in Dodge, if she wants to work for $10.00 an hour and learn a new language.

Seriously though, good luck in your tough times.
