    This may be the wrong place for this, but I'm an expediter who's employer will fail eventually. The semiconductor industry is going nowhere and most of them won't last much longer.

    I order goods and services, pay bills, ship and receive goods and equipment. I will send a resume upon request, just PM me.

    Commercial and Government-contract construction is very hot here right now - housing is in the pits though.
    But white-collar work is very chancy with this economy - more layoffs are a definite possibility.

    I'm in Central Texas, not far from Austin.

    Right now, I'm working one week on, and one week off. They call it "workshare" but it is the pits. Considering the time they've forced me to take off since Christmas, this is the longest I've ever been unemployed. I might get lucky and start back full time next week, but this industry and company has had it, and I need to move on.

    There is a serious shortage of manpower in the gold mines in NV. Might be worth a looksee if you can move into camps and transient housing until they get built out.

    Do you know any contact info for those jobs?

    I am thinking about truck driving. Not something I really want to do but I have to make more money than I am making right now.

    No sir, sorry I don't have a contact. I picked it up off the news last week, probably MSNBC, but I truly do not remember.
