Hey Y'all - it's been quite some time since I posted on here!

I'll be graduating from Thomas College on May 13th with a B.S. in Computer Management. If anyone knows of some IT positions in the area, could you give me a heads-up? I'm finding it very frustrating trying to find a job in Maine! :mad:

I can forward a copy of my resume to anybody that wants a copy. I have 14 years of Air Force experience to go along with my degree.

Cheers!

Way to go Dex. Now after graduation you and Flowerlady and Buds can get out to do some serious caching. :)

The school that I work at recently put an ad in the bdn looking for a technology person. I think that you would be responsible for the schools network, software, printers and the phone system. I think that the job would be called something like Technology ed tech III. You might have to do some other stuff from time to time. I like it there. It is a school for children with disabilties, its a K-12 school. The name of the school is Old Town Regional Program and the number is 827-4442 ask for Kim Lynch. She is our administrative secretary and accountant. she can tell you if the position has been filled. I think the job pays around 12.75 an hour and you have lots of time off. 35 hour work week and all the kids vactions and summers. It doesnt pay alot all year round but it pays the bills. Good luck and congrats:D

Dont worry about the Old Town school district budget crap. We are our own school system with no ties to the old town system. We get kids from all over the area, bangor, brewer, and as far as Newburge.

Oh I would beg to differ. There are plenty of jobs . . . just not good jobs. There's McDonalds ringing the register, the traffic control guys at the road tarring site, blueberry rakers . . .

Congratulations on your degree!! I just ask that you don't come down this way and apply for my job... I'm doing pretty much what you're looking to do but my degree is in Mech. Eng., not C.M. :o Good luck in the job hunt, I'm sure you will do fine! :)

Ah I remember my college graduation with fond memories. New England College always holds Commencement on Mother's Day and in honor of the big day I opted to have a buddy of mine give me a buzz cut . . . I looked like a fuzzy cue ball with glasses. Needless to say, Mom was not overly thrilled with the new look.

I received an award that day -- Parent's Award or something like that -- although to tell you the truth I can't remember what it was for -- graduating summa cum laude or my activities on campus or something. Who knows.

What I do remember most vividly though was our Commencement speaker -- Geena Davis, the actress. It turns out that Geena attended NEC for a year or so before she transferred to another school. I don't recall much about her speech -- something about smoking dope on the covered bridge -- but I do remember gazing up at her (she's wicked tall) when I went up to receive my degree.

Ah, those memories of so long ago. . . . of course I conveniently forget the studying, reports, tests, etc.

I meant jobs in the information tech field. :D :D

Hey! Apply at T-Mobile! With benefits, the starting wage tops out at about 34k per year - not too shabby!

This could explain why my Maine cell phone -- a tin can with the 5-inch piece of string duct taped to the top -- gets such lousy reception even when I'm right next to the antenna. :D

yeah, get a new phone, the networks are just about all the same ( i personally think USCell is better in maine though then verizon, cingular is a close third) even some of the equipment is the same, ya cant be stingy when it comes to technology.

If the truth be told . . . I don't even have a cell phone. My wife has one for emergencies . . . and neither of us know the number to it.
