I am looking for work in FL (preferably). I prefer an Assistant Superintendant position(will use Hands on as needed). I am WELL versed in home rehabs and have a SOLID background in New condo construction also. Hurricane/disaster work is also a possibility! Travel with the right pay and allowances is more than appealing(my last long out of town gig was 2 1/2 years in the Miami area with home travel arrangements periodically)

Form management to cabinet installation I AM YOUR MAN!

I have 10 plus years in C-O-N-S-T-R-U-C-T-I-O-N! DO NOT reply to the following e-mail if you want me to sell F:censored:KING insurance or start a F:censored:KING MLM venture! :eek: (or if you're the disposed king of Nigeria needing help to transfer your inheritance out of the country :rolleyes:)
all others:

Thank you for your consideration,

I will GLADLY forward you my Resume

Jim

Well ScaryLari, UNFORTUNATELY I have said the same. As the saying goes"I don't want you to lose your house but if you do I want to be the one to rebuild it."

I was working in the Miami area directly for the developer of a big condo project they were in negotiations with the Lehman Brothers (YES "THOSE" Lehman brothers!) to start taking over distressed properties to finish to completion when THE BOTTOM FELL OUT! I got laid off from the project , moved back to Jacksonville(I had been visiting my house and family off and on over the last 2 1/2 years) since I had been gone so long I had NO contacts.

Here since they can pick and choose you can't get a $10 an hour maintenance job without being HVAC certified!

I see you live in Jacksonville, so do I. Have you contacted Auld & White? I know recently they were looking for an assistant project manager. Good Luck.

This is where I am from [ am in Labelle, just outside Fort Myers but lived in Fort Myers for years] no work here at all. Am heading out today to New Orleans, Gulfport, and Beaumont to check out the work there from the hurricanes, if there is any work there to be found, Still will beat being here with nothing.

Would just like to say save your money Mississippi wasnt good a year after the storm we went. There still rebuilding in N.O. but not sure how much work is there or how much money they have. I went right after Katrina with guns and it was about as unsafe as Iraq A few Gc's I know left N.O. with over 100k still on the table that the could not collect on.

Still early in the season we still may get a storm also there still is alot of work in Houston from Ike but TX sucks to make money everyone doing it for nothing. Just got back in June was getting beat in pricing bad 30 yr shingles people was selling for 145 a square.

No but thanks.

I went to a job fair and sent out like 50 some resumes including jobs below fair value just to keep in the mix. Few if any responses. Even responding to maintenance jobs with promised "side work" upgrades. Knowing how much extra that translates to I responded to several listings. Nada.

Most companies are closing down or moving on/out and have no room.

I even stress traveling as an option but people just have too many choices.

They can get a $100,000 plus a year guy for what I'm willing to work for .

Can't blame them for that but they can blame themselves when this get's reversed and $60,000 a year guys can hold out for $100k or better.;)
