Lots of furlough'ing going on where I work.=C2=A0 Not me.=C2=A0 Not yet.

One of my tech support staff got his hours cut severely today and the other=
 tech support person has a target on her back.=C2=A0=C2=A0 They did not ask=
 me to assist them with a job search, but I want to help them out if I can.=
 =C2=A0 If anyone is hiring tech support staff, I have two candidates.=C2=
=A0 They are great people!=C2=A0=20




=============================================================== From: wes ------------------------------------------------------ I would love to hear about anyone hiring for anything right now, simply because I have an impression that no one is and I would love nothing more than to be wrong about that. -wes

=============================================================== From: Bret McHone ------------------------------------------------------ If you are around Knoxville jewelry Television is hiring a few developers i believe.

=============================================================== From: Eric Wolf ------------------------------------------------------ Large companies, like mine, have put a freeze on all hiring. Smaller companies, not so much. Grocery stores are hiring like mad. And if you know COBOL, it sounds like most states have a job for ya... I think I should brush up on COBOL as a retirement side gig. Back in the Y2K panic, there was a mad rush for COBOL programmers. -Eric -=--=---=----=----=---=--=-=--=---=----=---=--=-=- Eric B. Wolf 720-334-7734

=============================================================== From: Michael Harrison ------------------------------------------------------ Hot market seems to be helping fix/upgrade peoples home networks so they can work from home. It's about 98% of our tech support load right now (factoid out of my ass percentage... channeling Fox news), helping IWF's (Idiot With Firewall) not daisy chain modems/firewalls/etc.. But you'd have to visit people, in their homes.
