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.

Paying more than what she was making with her previous company, 100% paid benefits, company credit card - you name it.

It's been a rough go, but things are looking good. Best of luck to those of you still looking - your day is coming.
GREAT NEWS buddy. congrats

Speaking of, I saw a post of yours saying you're no longer in Dallas. You move back "home" to Northern Illinois?

Close. Central Illinois which is home. Found a really, really nice career in hotel management with a lot of advancement opportunites. No longer "the pizza boy", but you guys can still refer to me as one if you'd like =)

and take it from me...the interviewing process and job search for actual careers (and not restaurant jobs) is stressful and takes A LOT out of you...it was a very, very stressful month where I was really doubting my decision to leave my good job in Dallas.

At the end of the day, I missed my friends and I wanted the chance to watch my nephews grow up and Dallas was just too far away and I worked too many hours to have a chance to keep in touch with my family the way I wanted to.

I lost my job in October, found another about 2 months later. the wait does suck, as do the endless interviews. When I lost mine after the crash in 2008, I looked for about 16 months and believe me I was trying. Back then I couldn't even get interviews it was so miserable, but now I had several so things are much better. Best of luck to everyone looking.

One thing I noticed that since the labor market crashed, firms don't even bother getting back to you even after interviews. I find that just so totally rude - that you spend hours researching the company and then interviewing on their schedule - and they don't even call back. A few sent form rejection letters after but I didn't get feedback on a dozen interviews and that is just rude.

One thing I learned the past several years: when you interview, you get the job ASAP. If you don't hear back immediately you are toast and need to move on.

Did she get on with TRi? I know Tom and Nicole Roof are very active here at the Lake with local charities.

Last time I was unemployed (10+ years ago), I decided to start my own business. Scary as shit, but the best thing I have ever done in my professional life. It's not for everyone, nor is it always the best path, but it worked well for me. I know the feeling of being out of work, with little kids and a mortgage - it sucks. My best to all of you going through his right now.

May your next adventure in life, be your best one yet. Cheers!

I hope somewhere down the road...maybe when I'm 35 or 40, I'll have enough capital and a good slate of investors to start me own sports bar and grill.

So many years in the industry knowing all of the flaws many restaurants have...I just think with the right menu I could be quite successful in that field. I do miss being in that industry from time to time it was just always so frustrating knowing how much better things could be if they were ran the right way.

Interestingly enough, I find myself in a similar situation. I'm definitely not going anywhere for 2013, but my Dad is retiring, and I know my time on Earth is limited with him, and Mom. He'll be 70 in September and isn't looking like he'll make 80 or anything. Long, ****ed up story, but they are actually my Aunt and Uncle. Raised me since I was 7, and I am who I am today because of them. Don't want to be 2100 miles away, and trying to "negotiate" middle ground somewhere.

Don't do it. Knew guys who did and they were miserable, said all their work was weekends and that's when their friends and family were free. result, no family or friend time. buying a bar is like buying a boat - there are only 2 good days. from what i hear, of course I haven't met the successful rich bar owners who might have a different tale
