So I finally am going to do it

After bitching and moaning about my job for the last 5 months I am finally going to turn in my two week notice on Monday.I am doing this mostly because shortly Megan and I are moving further away from my job and I am not going to drive for hour and fifteen minutes one to go to work. This does leave me with a small problem. I won’t have a job. So its back to the job search deal which I am not very good at. So any tips on finding a job? I would like a biotech job but I am not sure how likely thats going to be for the near future. However I do need at least a part time job to help bring in some money, so that my sugar mama doesn’t notice that she supporting my sorry ass. Any one seen any vet offices in the boulder area looking for part-time help? I have a fair amount of experience as a kennel help. Or how about any retail stores looking for seasonal help. Anyway I finish writing my sad story and let you get back to normally sechedule life.

I’m not sure how much it helps, but you’re welcome 🙂

Here are some other general job search sites, for the local Boulder/Denver area:
“The Daily Camera Careers,”:
“The Denver Post News Jobs,”:
and “Craig’s List for the Denver/Boulder Area (‘jobs’ on right).”:

Hope that helps, though you probably already know of those resources anyway. Good luck searching! (Other people should feel free to toss in some more job links!)

You can do it, Gilvoro! (heh. almost wrote Set instead of Gilvoro)

Wish I had better advice than that, but really, I’m a lot further away, so any advice would be third-hand at best. I do wish ya luck, always.

Have you looked at that goverment office in Fort Collins (I know, still a long drive)? USDA/APHIS/VS/CEAH/CADIA? UI don’t know what any of those letters mean, but that’s where my dad works. He used to be a vet and now works on classifiying hte risk of importing chickens/beef/goat, whatever other countries want to sell us. It’s a really cool job. Obviously, you don’t have the education or experience for that yet but they might be looking for a tech or at the very least some clerical help. It’d at least get you in the door.

mallorn, I used to know what all those ment but now I can only get to VS (which I Vet service I think). Yes I do keep looking at Government jobs but not much open.

The Future of Scientific Publishing

Just read a fascinating (if lengthy) essay on disruptive technology and the future of scientific publishing. Well worth the read!

Hey all Paradoxdruid readers! I recently started up a blog on stem cells that I’d love you all to take a look at:
