    I'm in Tucson, been flying for 20+ years.
    Currently flying Airbus, but don't hold that against me.
    I would like to find something more local in nature. I'll fly your corporate Jet, Turbo Prop, Recip etc., teach your kids how to fly and your wife how to ride bikes. I am a Jill of all trades.

    I also play around with antiques, classics and aerobatic planes. Flown many types and current Tailwheel.

    PM me with any questions.

    My dad is a semi-retired truck driver, specializing in hazardous materials - fully licensed with an insanely safe track record over the past 30+ years. He retired from Air Products and Chemicals last year and now lives in Peoria, AZ.

    He's available to do short term, short notice gigs for trucking companies around the valley - literally, he will fill in for your sick driver, extra capacity, etc.... if you need him to do so.

    Anyone needing a really reliable, safe CDL driver in PHX / TUS (and with some exceptions, the three state area), PM me for his contact info.

    He's not really interested in OTR stuff unless its really special / lucrative / one-off.

    OK, this is probably going to be a longshot but here it goes:

    I am an Estate Caretaker by profession for the last 9 years. I am basically a jack-of-all-trades for your private estate(s). The last client I worked for in Montana was on the Fortune 500 list. I have operated heavy equipment, drove a snowplow, fought fires, have security training, have knowledge of plumbing, electrical, carpentry, mechanics and welding. I have done all sorts of landscaping, some forest management, pool care, vitaculture (grapes), veggie gardening, doggie/cat care and pond maintenance. Anything I haven't done I'm eager to learn. I am currently idle in Temecula, Ca and looking to find a position somewhere in live-in position somewhere in the west. So, if you are/or know of any wealthy folks that need someone to look after their estate, I'm the guy (and I come with great letter's of recommendation!). Thanks.

    Anyone here have a lead on an entry-level accounting gig? Preferably with a CPA firm in the San Jose area?

    I graduated in 2003 with a finance and accounting degree, but went into construction project management after college. Now that construction is dead as dead, I dusted off that degree, sat for and passed the CPA exam, and now am looking for my first accounting job. I'm very flexible on pay, just need to get my foot in the door and build some experience.

    Never thought I'd be posting in this thread but I am. :shog

    I'm outta work for the first time in my life and it's been a month already.
    High End Finish Carpentry is my current specialty but I'm proficient in many other trades. I'd really like to find something in the Motorcycling Industry, but so would just about anybody that is reading this. Riding, writing or wrenching are the main things that spark my interest but just about anything involving bikes would be great.Thanks :ricky
