might as well get looking soon...

Well, in the near future...

In December of 2010 I will be a college graduate of Michigan Tech looking for a full time position in the field of Industrial Technology. Coursework involves quality assurance, statistics, lean manufacturing, production planning and control, facility and process design.

I started my college career in Mechanical Engineering Technology and was there until my 5th semester, so I do have knowledge of statics, dynamics, basic machine design, and fluid systems also.

I've also taken many business and economics classes in accordance with degree requirements and as general electives, such as basic accounting, micro/macroeconomics, international economics, business law and organizational behavior (essentially a business psychology course).

Finally, I rounded out my degree with history and philosophy courses, two of my major interests.

The best practical work experience I have is as a metal fabricator for a small welding shop near my home. This includes mig welding, bending, drilling, simple fabrication, and basic manual machining on lathe.

I'd like to find an entry level position in a company that can use an Industrial Technology major for full time employment. As I stated, I will graduate in December of 2010, GPA will be about 3.1. I'm hard working, don't mind long hours, and am willing to learn. I am willing to relocate to just about anywhere, but would prefer to go to Wisconsin or Minnesota.

If anyone has any leads pm me, as I need to get a jump on my search. Hopefully I can have a solid job offer by graduation day.

Resume available at request, and thanks for your time.

Executive Suites of Minnesota

Executive Suites of Minnesota provides shared office facilities and virtual office services to mobile and work-at-home professionals.

Why use your home address on your business card and give up that layer of security between your personal and business life? Why meet your clients or prospects at Caribou or Starbucks when you could meet them in a clean, private, furnished conference room or day office?

In addition to our virtual office services, we also offer full-time shared office space available on a short-term (1 year or less) lease with all office equipment (telephones, furnishings, copiers/scanners/printers) available.

Contact me for the first month's free on a virtual contract or two months of rent free with a 14-month lease.

Well, might as well get my info out here. It's been great having more time to ride, but I need to get going on something soon.

Looking for contracts or a new position with a company. I have 14 years of experience in IT, primarily as a Business Analyst, and that primarily with Oracle Applications / eBusiness Suite.

Open to contracts on W-2 basis, or direct through my company, T Rock Consulting. Also considering a permanent-type position with a great company.

If you think you know anyone who need someone like me, please PM me with an email and I'll be glad to shoot off my resume.

Japanese / European Motorcycle Technician Sought

Due to recent expansion, Thiel's Wheels is in need of a motorcycle technician.

The shop is located in central Ohio, about an hour north of Columbus. Featured marques are Honda, Yamaha, Kawasaki, and now Triumph (which frankly has been an increasing amount of business). Thiel's Wheels also services other brands, like Suzuki, Aprilia, etc.

In the "second season" (fall/winter), much focus is on ATVs, Mules, etc.

Performance work is an issue- with dyno tuning a priority.

If interested, please mail a resume and cover letter to:
