Had an interview last week with DEI in Phoenix. It was a good meeting, one of the best I've had since 2008. However, its still another case of being too expensive - they can't afford much in benefits, no healthcare coverage, and cannot guarantee 40 hrs/wk. Since I have a regular steady job (which I cannot stand), its a huge risk to go back into surveying to support my family.
I'm growing weary of the wait for the recovery to happen in Arizona.
I see new houses under construction, commercial building construction, road construction, etc. Somebody had to be getting the pre-engineering topos done, and there's a ton of layout afterwards - so where are the jobs?
