    Hi there, yes my weekend was nice. This past weekend was a lot cooler in PA and not so humid. The drive back to PA sucked. I was in traffic for 30 minutes on I70. Unreal….I was so glad I was home in my apt with a cold beer a waiting me. I hate the drive.
    Yes, I agreed about the college costs. I will not go back to college unless I can obtain grants or scholarships. There is a certification program that is a six week course for CJ and CS for around 125.00 a course which you take online. Come fall that might be my best option.
    There are always jobs for truck drivers and nurses. HA The downside is can u see yourself driving long trips? If so I would take that under serious possibilities, the do a start up bonus etc.
    Regular security guards at airports pay a decent salary.
    Our age is a factor but that should not hold us back from obtaining a good living. I would hate to think that after all I have accomplish this is the best that I can do. The education program took a real hard hit in PA. Now if I move to Tennessee it would be different. I would have to investigate the cost of living etc. But that is also on the back burner.
    Sorry, I didn’t realize about the military thing.
    Well, I connect again tomorrow. Have a nice day….

    Well in the past I worked as a maintenance worker for about less than a month. I got that job because I got a certificate in the field. After that I went to a 2 year college and got a degree in computer graphics while working part time as a dishwasher. That is pretty much it.. I have tried endlessly looking for something but the economy kinda sucks right now. At least where I live.

    Hello! Thank you for the instruction. I did mean to send it to you. I'm rather new at all of this public media forum, so please bear with me in this "learning curve." Your interests are very similar to mine. I look forward to hearing from you!

    LOL sorry about that … Morning, It looks like a rainy day here in Va.Im heading back to PA this afternoon. The web page can be created on google and I would just add the link to my ad. AND in big print include only serious employees respond.
    It should be easy enough to do and the cost of running the ad should a small price to pay in order to get myself notice. I thought about recruiters which will be my next step. They are expensive. I also thought about going back to school for computer security certification. It is less costly and as long as I can maintain a good GPA I can advance myself through the courses. I would have to start on square 1 but that’s okay. They are only six weeks long. I am thinking that is something I can do during the school year, starting in the fall.
    Warehouse jobs are in demand along with truck drivers. Since I am directional challenge driving a truck would not be an option. I saw an ad online for a warehouse fork-lift person. I think driving a fork-lift would be cool. I do know how to drive a stick, my dad my loved the VW bug which at the time cost just under 2000.00 ha Most of my driving days was in a VW bug.
    You have your military background that should help you …I don’t they have that and that question is on all the job’s forms and even for college.
    I guess it is all about location.
    Well, its like we are in the same boat …. Hoping to find that job that can satisfy our needs and yet keep us going. I was so bored yesterday that I started taking surveys online. OMG seriously ; )
    How far a search can you go from where u live now? There is a airport here in VA Dules I think that is what it is called they are looking for security people. With your military BG that might be an option. Did you look into the airports in your area?
    Well you have a good weekend … heading back today to PA Catch up with u next week.
    Take care

    A new move can be exciting…I moved to Stillwater, OK for a job at OSU. The job was great. I was IT computer specialist for the landscaping department. I was busy all day. A job that was a challenge and worth it all. The downside I was alone, a college town basically. Nice but I am single. The people were very distance. Go to work –leave work- that’s it. I swear that the government using their Federal Witness protection program there in Stillwater. The people were afraid to talk to you let alone go out and grab a burger. Strange place, after year an a half I got a job offer back in PA to be IT Director for a charter school. Then I was laid off. It was a bizarre twist of fate…
    Not going back to school when I cant get a decent job with the degree I have now and I graduated 3.92 plus educational work experience.
    I would like to move if the quality of life would change. Im here Ashburn Va. Nice place and there r jobs to be found. But if you cannot sit outside in the evenings on a summer’s night because of heat—hmm, that’s not good. Traffic and cost of living is high. Customer service is low.
    I think we all are feeling the pressures of the declining economy and what’s to come next. I do not know any one that is not struggling today.
    Well I guess we just keeping trying for the connection : )

    yeah, i know what u mean. In PA the educational funding has gone down the tubes. If I move to Tennessee there r a lot of teaching position available. The moving would be an issue. I would like to connect with a attorney office to do research etc as my starting point. Just need that 'in". I just read that there are not enough funding or people to examine DNA samples from crimes..So they sit on it which I can see as a problem. and I dont get it at all. train and hire people and get the results. Yet for one week of campaigning with the price tag of10 million$ for candidates. there is something wrong with this system and the funding to listen to a lot of BS and lies. for 10 B$ seriously. I rather the skip it all because its worthless info that changes once in office. HA wow

    I just finished with my Bachelors degree in May 2012.What are some things I should for under my local county, state, and city for beginners? Also, I just turned 23 and I stay in Atlanta, GA. I haveny tried any local sectors, and im not really sure about joining the armed forces. That would be a last resort.

    Hi there, sorry I'm traveling back and forth from PA to VA. I have search everywhere. I believe in order to find a job you are going to need an "in". I hate to say it but it's not what you know but who you know kinda-of thing. I really like to research to dig to find an answer. Not sure if that is what an employer wants.... But I know that work is tedious but to solve the puzzle is something that interest me now. I going back to school in the fall. Although, rewarding and dealing with children is always a challenge.. I just need something else..I have done this for so long from elementary to college level.. Just want a something different. Exciting to find an answer.....I know sounds weird but that is where i am gifted. Any suggestions besides playing FBI games :)
