Well it has happened again, another job died. This is of course typical of much of the aerospace themed businesses I have been involved with since college (Pratt&Whitney, Lycoming, and Norden). The place I worked was a contractor to Pratt, but with Pratt slowing down deliveries of castings to us for machining and large quantities not to arrive again for two months, 10 people were axed...I am trying to take the high road here, for I have seen the feast-famine cycle, and things were slow for a while. However, I have learned so much about quoting parts, machine rates and overheads, cost analysis of manufactured parts, etc. Of course, it helps to actually like gas turbine engines and machined parts (I do, I do :>). The high road is to note that I have learned as much as I could in the Sales Administration position I had, there was no more to learn. I want to take my new found knowledge and apply it to something else (the upshot is that I am not driving 57 miles to/from work every with those $65 + fillups every week).
I have rewritten my resume this morning and re posted it on Mosnter.com. Obviously, two things do work against me with some employers, my age and of course the wheelchair. But so what, I have such a good resume, I can get interviews. So we will see.
I am reminded of the song by the Silhouettes Get a Job
Yip yip yip yip yip yip yip yip Mum mum mum mum mum mum Get a Job
A classic song! Well, Saturday Night
Fever Grilling is upon us, and a London Broil is currently marinating in Adobo spice, crushed red pepper, and dried Oregano. The matchlight charcoal will be lit shortly, and it is beautiful outside at 74° currently. I am not grilling to forget! It is Saturday, and Ralph's Steak House is Open. And Disco on 107.9 begins at 19:00 hours…
Is a chilled Duff a good patio beer?
