I am here in Albuquerque, NM and things are non-existent, I have over 10 years experience in all types of surveying. I have been un-employed for 8 months and collecting un-employment with that benefit running out soon.

I sit in front of my computer sending out resumes to companies out of state and instate, but can’t afford to go to an interview let alone move out of state. Most of the time I get no response from them even with a read request with the e-mail.

No one can build anything without us to stake the property ,building  or utilities Etc. There are jobs out there, so I keep trying. At some point I with other surveyors will have to get a degree or start a new career.

not yet.  I have few baited hooks out there, but no nibbles.  I like the resume help group idea.

Phil,

 

i am in Arizona now have you had any luck? i took a temporary position surveying in mammoth for 10$ an hour, the field crew consisted of 3 professional land surveyors.

 

its looking grim guys

recently i had a job board offer to critique my resume, i haven't been having much luck with the job boards, and its seems today, no one wants you to call or come by there office and drop off a resume. So i allowed them to critique it, i was almost astonished at the response i got back from him, but it got me thinking..

 

in todays job market, it seems companies are looking for a more specialized field, so the days of thinking my title shall suffice, along with my achievements and such..

 

the job board wanted almost 400$ to re write my resume, and i have to assume to re write would simply mean to "re format", after reviewing my resume several times i thought it was short and to the point, professional, outlined my strong points, and achievements

 

this got me to thinking, i wouldn't want a an office guru or a fancy talking guy Ive never met or worked with, i don't see why other unemployed surveyors couldn't step it up a notch and help other UN employed surveyors critique there resumes and beef it up a bit. i certainly would take the time to review another colleagues resume and offer advice or stuff i have learned that works

 

i think i will create a group, and add a resume review

Yep, its an adapt, improvise, & overcome attitude.  I've been a stablehand, OTR truck driver, airline baggage handler, and now I'm a mechanic.  I've been out of land surveying since June of 2008.  I was doing it nonstop since 1991. 

These days, whenever there is an opening, the market is flooded with qualified candidates.  I flat out tell my interviewers that I can do the job, but I may be too expensive, too old, or just not fit their business model.  It gets extremely frustrating not getting another party chief job, but you just gotta keep being the squeaky wheel & keep your name in the forefront.  If anyone has any ideas on what they want to hear in an interview, or see on a resume, please let me know.  I cant afford to move to a new town, so I would jump at any chance to work in my town of Phoenix, AZ.

So how is it going?! I have been unemployed as a "Surveyor" since October last year. I am employed as a drillers assistant with an engineering firm in Mobile, Al. Let me tell you......cutting a 100 miles of line, through a swamp, with one arm tied behind your back and your boots tied together in the middle of August in South Mississippi doesnt have anything on that! But I am a "BULLDOG" and I dont stop!

I have been following our profession all across the United States and pretty much have found people working within this profession are now employed as, pizza boys, tow truck drivers, ditch diggers and a nanny! What is up with that!! So on and so fourth......doing what ever it takes to provide for there families. My hats off to you guys, dont let it beat you down.
