    Before you left, everything was fine! The minute your gone ... Dow writes me about this funny part of my resume whereas part of my experience in California was "Fudge Packer" ....
    He mentioned he thought I must be joking or something but thought it was funny.

    WELL I DIDNT THINK IT WAS FUNNY!!!

    But I didnt believe I was in trouble until I reviewed my once perfectly-good-resume ... and discovered all the hacked up parts of it's contents!

    It's too bad we just filled our position...I would've hired ya.

    But here's how you can turn this around.....

    Go to any place you think this may have been sent to. Ask to speak to whoever does the hiring. Tell the person that you submitted a resume and you have since found that some where sent out that someone changed on you as a joke. Ask if you can submit a new one. During this time, keep in mind that you have thier attention and use it to your advantage. Take a bit of time explaining why you would be an asset to thier company and tell them you are goal oriented, driven to succeed, and have great attention to detail.

    See....now you have got the chance to talk to them.

    Use it to your advantage....good luck

    OH, hell it was an on-line resume. Kind of hard to talk to them then isn't it.

    Don't worry, you'll find something.

    Thanks for the kind advice.

    I still await a confession from either Jack or Dice. I know one of them had something to do with this shenanegan!

    If you even want my opinion.

    I think for someone to do that is very stupid. Yeagh a joke. But that joke could have some serious implications on a personal level for R12 and it's not near as funny when your the guy that had it done to them. I am a huge pratical jokester, but theres a place and time for it. This resume is being sent to potential employers, and right now, with out any screwing around R12 needs a job.

    Real smart.. Real funny..

    I for one am trying to help out R12 by passing his name around to colleagues. I would hope that every one here can understand that he has a wife and kids to look after and needs a job soon. Any one of you may find yourself in a situation much like he is in later on in life. Moved away, has some good experience, but now is older. Now out of his element, in a new place, needs a good paying job, economy has had a huge impact on our industry and things although improving are still not the gang busters they were a few short years ago. So he is sitting here, killing himslef to go on these job interveiws all over get out. Contractors have a difficult time seeing past the age part. It does play into many contractors decisions beleive me.

    Just no need for the jokes. It's a serious matter and one I hope gets resolved soon. R12 has been a great contributor here and has a lot to offer in wisdom.

    I agree with dash,most jokes played out by adults go way to far. I have talked to R12 on the phone before he is a very kind hearted man and did not deserve this. I do like what Dow said also, I think that we should all help R12.

    BE SCARED OF THE COMPANIES THAT DID CALL YOU ESPECIALLY IF THEY REQUEST YOU WEAR SHORTS TO THE INTERVIEW

    Thanks Dow.... one the serious side here.. I have been getting this "complex" like; once you pass a certain number of years either in age or trade experience, you are no longer employable to the average small service contractor.


    One outfit I interviewed with out of Houston had the service manager making less than what I was requesting for salary. (he said I wanted 80K)
    So when I never heard back from them, I assumed they got someone else to fill the position.
    It turned out that the manager had lied to his boss about what I was requesting for salary and the boss never considered me.
    But that's just one.

    I get a little agressive about my work and sharing ideas when I start with a new service manager. But I never expect to take his job from him. I dont want to "run the show", I just want to be part of the ops.
    If I found another person like me, I'd even consider going back into contracting! At least I'd know what to expect when I hired someone who was fifty and has demonstrated where there areas of strengths are. A young person today has the whole field open to them. It takes time to see where they will do their most excellant work in. I already know where I will excell in.
    But try telling that to a perspective employer. Especially if they are younger than yourself or they are only a manager, and not an owner.



    Oh, on the humorous side; to the pranksters here on this forum, I admit we all need a good alugh from time to time. And I would nto have posted the question; "Who Done It?", if I was concerned about the replies that would soon be flying around here.

    Seriously, I dont know who was responsible. Ed has not a mean bone in his head. (heart?) So I dont really blame him.
    And ,yes, I do know what fuge packing is about. I lived in that state many years. Although that term is not a common one. Even amongst the queer set.

    Your all a great bunch here. And I dont mind some humor. It turned out pretty funny afterall.

    If anyone wants to see a brief copy of my resume, they can go to the thread for jobs. It's listed in my post over there.
    (I changed my log in name so it wont be hacked so easily next time)
