From: "Mike (meuon) Harrison" ------------------------------------------------------ Seems I didn't see this because there was a .DocX attached to the original email. But I'm cut and pasting and forwarding on. The Chattanooga Chamber may still be looking for a DBA (their terms). What they need is an IT Cheerleader and all around technologist / sysadmin / trainer... For example, no one in the right mind sends a bare .docx format. Bluntly gmail tosses emails with them into a labyrinth. I also didn't easily find this on their website either. So in summary: They need help. While not Linux specific, and their normal environment is very Microsoft heavy, they do use a lot of Cloud (ie probably Linux) services. The job description is a hodgepodge of skills and needs, the pay is probably laughable to moderate, but it's a bunch of nice people to work with for good reasons. Job may already be filled, but as I was sent this on April 23rd, I doubt it. Ben sent it to me. I'm going to spread it around. Their description, cut and pasted as plain text: -------------------------------------------------------------- The Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce is seeking a database and applications administrator to join our IT department to oversee the health, monitoring and operation of our primary CRM database and other software applications, ensuring a high level of adoption, training and positive end-user experience.
