A Gentle Re-direction


For my few followers and anyone who might stumble by, I'd like to direct you to my ongoing blog http://www.buildingcontent.highercontent.com/


My half year of unemployment is over. I'm now in Huntsville, AL. My wife's hometown and my home state. I'm doing my part for the war; working with a great group of engineers and technitians at CASA Designs, providing inovative designs for the Army and Corps of Engineers.


I plan to continue blogging, both professionally and personally. Stay in touch - and God bless you!

The Search is Over!

One day short of the six month anniversary of being laid off - I was offered a great new job. So, after half a year of unemployment, I will be joining CASA Designs in Huntsville, Alabama.

CASA Designs primarily works with the Corps of Engineers and the Department of Defense. In a sense I will be following in my son's boots - he has been serving in the US Army for several years and is now deployed in Iraq. For now I will be the only Registered Architect on board at CASA; I look forward to joining the veteran-owned and staffed firm!

This happy post may mark the end of this blog. I trust it has served some purpose. It has help me, being able to write about my search for work in my field.

Please continue to follow me on Twitter or on my other blogs; Gentile for Jesus and Building Content .

Day 141 - Local Firm Hiring!

The combination of my off- and on-line networks paid off this morning when I learned a local firm is seeking to hire two Architects. My source, a former coworker who was off with us in March, is someone whom I helped place at the hiring firm. She in turn e-mailed me advance notice that the company was going to be staffing up.

I had located the position for this former coworker online, when she knew nothing of it. She now has informed me of this opening, before it's even posted. This is an example of the off-line and on-line aspects of a network; that is to say, the power of relationships.

Who knows where this will lead, but it's a ray of hope...
