    Took a full time job in Lafayette and it's the absolute pits. Looking hard for work, freelance or full time. Design and project management for 3D fabrication, interiors, cabinetry, furniture, retail and exhibit design. Particularly interested in 3d design positions. Anywhere in Colorado, possibly surrounding states, possibly back on the coasts. Have a portfolio and resume I can send. Thanks!

    Know the feeling about a position just not being what you hoped it would be. I'm going back to the coasts for work.

    Yeah. I may have to. I'm still getting offers on the coasts for work that is more interesting and pays more, even for the COL.

    Yup. That's what kills me. I really want to live here, but no position here interests me enough to want to do it. Funny thing, ever position that does is on the coasts and they pay better with a better path upward. So, to the north east I go. Ah well, least I can get 2-3 acres with a view for the price I paid here.

    yeah, I totally get that. The work I do in NYC is so much more interesting than what I get here, and i get paid so much better and MUCH better benefits. It's really a bummer. I like it here quite a bit. I'm not leaving just yet, but I sort of feel like it's inevitable. hoping I can work something out to be here part time and NYC part time, at least.

    Good luck to you. My house will be listed this weekend. Just told my boss today. Figure it's time to make things official. Very much looking forward to my new position in the NE. Only bad part is we are going that way early Dec.

    Hopefully you can make it work out, but if you just aren't getting anything out of the work you have here I would say just make the jump. I tried to make it work, but finally had to be honest with myself that I was just not that into it. Due to that I knew I was just not going to excel at my work which wouldn't do my career any good. I was stalled.

    Looking for new hires. Reviving a dead thread.

    Posting here in the Rockies first, as it's like a family here.
    My outfit is looking to expand its personnel in the USA.
    This is an unusual type job, non-typical, with a lot of travel.
    I am the field supervisor, and you would be working with me most of the time.
    We are looking for field persons to track cleaner and smart pigs in natural gas and oil pipelines in the US.
    If you don't know what a pig is, please Google it, to give you an understanding of what the job does.
    A two day orientation training course is given to hired personnel, with direct supervision on site.
    This job entails travel, a lot of travel, as we go to the locations to pig and track the units thru from one end to the other.
    Typical jobs last from 4-8 days, sometimes concurrent, with a week or two in between.
    We usually fly into an airport, rent a vehicle, and drive to site. Reverse on job completion.
    All equipment is provided to track the pigs, including a laptop. Oilfield experience a plus.
    Must be computer literate, Excel, and Mapping programs used for documenting and tracking units,
    with strong math skills, and an understanding hydraulic principles.
    Ideal person would be detail oriented, and self sufficient to get to job locations, without any issues.
    Please send a resume to me by PM or Conversation as it's called now, if you feel you might like to, and be able to do this type of work.
    Did I say there is a lot of travel.
    Thanks for your time.
    Mike

    I can appreciate the BOLD a lot of travel part.....my standard opening in an interview is "Do you have a passport?" Quickly followed by "Do you understand travel is a requirement and not an option?" And still, we get people within the first 6 months crying about the travel....

    I would bet people get upset after they get out of town a few times and wish for a closer to home type position.
    This job is not for everyone. Every job is out of town. This is why I stated three times there is a lot of travel.
    I personally really like it, a new place every day, seeing different things rather than the same old stuff.
    Sure it sucks dealing with the TSA, people sometimes, airports, living in hotels, etc.
    But that is also what makes it good also. Sitting down in a diner and having conversations with people you normally wouldn't.
    It will strain relationships, and I have found younger persons with little to no ties, or older persons secure in their place on the planet seem to do the best.
    Watching people in the airports is a great way to spend a couple hours with a beer and internet.
    Bumping to the top!

    Damnit, Assfault! I'm in after Dec. 5th, maybe! I know what a f-ing Pig is, and love travel! (I'm a SINK w/dogs) I have 2 interviews coming up in the GIS field with Loveland and the CO State Forest Service. If those don't work out, I've been in the O&G field for years mapping their stuff, and know my way around pipelines and pig-launchers :thumb
