New to the forum, looking for work
« on: April 18, 2010, 11:47:38 am »

Alright, this topic is just so I can introduce myself and maybe connect with people to build a network so I can find a job in NH. And perhaps maybe an apartment or residence for when I come over.

Currently I am living in Black River Falls, WI, where I am working part-time at a Flying J Travel Plaza as a janitorial maintenance personnel. I've got previous employment and experience in the fast-food industry, so I'm rather customer-oriented and friendly. Flying J, if anyone knows anything about their recent history, declared bankruptcy the year before last. My hours have been cut a few times. I've been part-time since last April when they hired me. Finding another job here is not easy, but I'm doing my best to put money aside for my move to NH. I hope to have $2000 by the end of summer, or in the next five months, as I am currently half-way to reaching that goal. I just need a job, and an apartment, lined before I actually start/complete this momentous move.

I am not sure where to go on this forum and most of the topics I have seen are about jobs which require some sort of higher education, which I do not have, but that doesn't mean I wouldn't make a good employee. Any info, tips, advice and help about getting oriented here at the forum, or where I can find a job in NH, would be welcomed and very much appreciated.

Feel free to email me at parlezlibrement@yahoo.com

You can also find me on MySpace under the same name.

Welcome!

Networking is definitely one of the best ways to find a job.  A good way to network with Porcs is to volunteer some time to help out the FSP.  Join a project or 2 (or 10) where you get to work with FSP members.  Perhaps help out at PorcFest!?  You would meet hundreds of Porcs there.
