    are there any jobs out there?

    man i've been searching for jobs for it seems the last 6 years to no avail. My current job is stressing me out beyond belief. I work for the local sheriff dept here. I was suposed to go to mandate school at the start of the month but of course my work didn't get the papers sent off in time so i'm suposed to go in feb.... it's a small sheriff dept and it's just ridiculous... they made me start working in the jail.. that's fine been there over 8 months so far.. it's a total 360 from what i use to do in mcdonough. There's a LOT of two face ppl at my work now that like to start junk.. I heard tonight someone said that I was sneaking contraband into the jail... wtf.. i wont even buy my brother or dad tobacco... let alone some damn inmates....

    anyways...

    i've done a lot of different stuff in the past but i cannot find the job for me anywhere. i have a lot of experience with art of all kinds, hard manual labor, office work, etc... i really wish someone would come around for me though... i'll paste my current resume on here in hope that someone out there will see it and help me out.

    all i want is a decent job where i can make decent cash even if i have to bust my butt every day... so i can get a home and try to start a family in the upcoming years.

    i would love a job that deals with art... i've always wanted to get into airbrushing from regular colors to custom art work but have yet to find the time to dive into it from working my other jobs.

    anywho here's my resume.... please pass it on if you know anyone looking for someone reliable and hard working.

    Go to Cisco's site...there should be links to training classes. Alot of trade schools offer them as well. First you get a CCNA, then CCNP (I think thats the new one) and a CCIE. Anytime after your CCNP and some practical expirience you can start making descent money.

    easy on the jokes fellas but the entire USA has a severe shortage of nurses. I have seen cases offering upwards of $5K signing bonuses with rates from $45++.

    An added bonus is that it is a predominantly FEMALE job field.

    P.S. I worked part-time ($25/hr) just handing pills/meds to patients. Best of luck!

    Hi, my name is kromdom and I am a MALE NURSE!!!

    glad you posted GRIM, just saw an ad on TV that the MSC is hiring NOW!!!!!!

    Fellas, every Navy man that has seen a glimpse of the life of the MSC mariners all have one thing to say: Man, can't wait to get out someday and do THAT (same as a Navy job but MORE pay, state rooms, OT pay, awesome chow, more pay, etc.)

    You're assigned to a ship for a minimum of 4 months and live aboard. After 4 months you can either stay if you like the ship, go on leave for a month or two, request transfer to a different ship or request a school/training. Our ships are worldwide so it's definitely not a commuter job ;) Base salary is for 8 hours a day Mon-Fri. Working weekends and anything more than 8 a day is overtime.

    Donald,
    Get certified in Pest Control (looks like you have the time in to take the HPC and possibly the WDO test) move to the metro Atlanta area approx. 3.5 million here, as opposed to the population in Zebulan. Be your own BOSS. Forget 30K try 100K+ , and I am just a one man show. I have Owned my own business for 20 years....love it. Easy hours M-F 8-5. It's not all cake and icecream, but it sure beats working for someone else.
