As a Florida licensed land surveyor who has been out of work since September of 2011, I have found that even though firms are not hiring full time employees, they need people with field and cad experience to accomodate short term needs when business becomes too much of a burden for their current staff.  With that in mind, I have been able to keep busy enough to afford white bread and bologna.  When I send a resume as a response to a posted job, I include in my cover letter that I would be willing to fill in any position required to handle unexpected increases in the work load.  I have gone as far as to offer to fill in when a rodman calls in sick.  If you can make yourself available at a moment's notice, you may be able to create a job market by offering yourself as a 'fill in' for emergency situations, but make sure that your fee is enough to compensate you for your experience and abilities as well as the inconvenience of being available at a moment's notice.  I know that I can be a great rodman for $35 per hour for a few days and it will be worth it to the firm that hires me as well.


One other option for getting hired... as embarassing as it may be, is to attend the local chapter surveying society meetings and when the chapter president asks if there is any 'new business', raise your hand and announce that you are currently available for full or part time work and be prepared to briefly list your abilities, special skills, licenses, experience and dependability in one minute or less.  It's best not to appear to be too desperate for work or members will get the idea that you have issues that are keeping you from being hired the conventional way... watching the Internet job posts and submitting resumes.


Times are tough and I have had a difficult time finding work for the last two and a half years, but I have found that I can still find firms that will use me when they know my skills and have workload bottlenecks.  I would love to have a full time job, but I need to improvise to pay the rent and keep my phone on.  I just turned sixty years old in December, so it's not getting easier to find work.  I didn't want to retire at 62, but it may be my only option if we don't pull out of this Obama economy.


Well, I don't want to get on a rant.  Just wanted to share my thoughts.
