I am looking for a job, as anyone who has read my About Me page knows. Since passing two years of being out of full-time work – consulting/contracting being very thin gruel – I am opening the door to relocation.
Please look at my Portfolio to see some of the things I’ve done. Please look at my Why I Blog page to get a sense of who I am. I am a Mechanical Engineer with two Masters degrees, a background in plastics among other things, and experience in both design and manufacturing.
I get interviews. I get second interviews. Clearly, my resume does catch attention. Clearly I’m doing something right in interviews if I’m invited back. But – and I wish I knew why – I’m not getting offers. I’ve gone to interview coaches, done mock interviews, and nobody can put a finger on anything I’m doing wrong.
If I’m going to move – and I’d rather not but circumstances are dictating otherwise – I am looking southward, e.g., the Carolinas, Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Texas, with some specific criteria, to wit:
My criteria for a target area:
An established Conservative (denominationally) Jewish community
An active Masonic presence
A Montessori school that – ideally – goes through 8th grade
Other preferences (negotiable):
Not pure-flat landscape
Trees / forests
A large city within an hour’s drive
