Got laid off today
« on: January 06, 2009, 08:28:33 PM »
I'm not totally suprised because its obvious business is down for everyone.  It still sucks though.  I think this may be my opportunity to get into shape though because I plan on frequent exercise and bike rides :D

So if anyone knows of any jobs, please let me know.  My last job was doing CAD work which I've done for a few years.  Before that I worked in IT and in call centers way back.

CAD= computer aided design

My last job was more mechanical drawings.  The job before that was architectural. 

I live in Odessa right inside Pasco County.  I'm not overly picky about where I work though.  My last job was in Brandon.

Dave- I work in the consulting industry and yes it is very slow right now most of the projects are on hold because of lack in  financing. I will keep my eye open.

Do you only do cad drafting for hvac and architectural?

I have a friend in Lakeland who did CAD work for stairs/bleachers and what not. Came home one day recently to find his front door had been kicked in. Anything of value including a basically brand new 50 in plasma with surround sound had been taken. He told me they basically took everything but the furniture. Shows up at work a few days later to be informed that has been laid off.

Seriously though, best of luck to you.

Veeeeery slow...  I'll check to see if other groups (mine is not unfortunately) looking for CAD Techs...do you work in AutoCAD exclusively?  Are you experienced in Microstation/GeoPAK?

I've worked with microstation long enough to know AutoCAD is much better HAHA

I don't have any formal training with microstation though.

That really sucks man.  You may want to ask Chuck if his boss is looking for new hires.  I know they just moved to a new building and whatnot...plus his line of work could be interesting. 

I'll definately keep my ears perked.
