My life would be so much easier if more of you would take pains to keep in contact with your preferred educator at wherever it was you went to school. Okay, that is the sum of my tough love lecture but seriously, it’d be great if you all would do this more often.
There are a lot of good reasons to do it, yeah, there’s all the feel good back patting but like anyone, educators need to know the positive impact they’ve made in your lives. It could be as simple as dropping a card in the mail, it will brighten their day even if they don’t remember you!
Now to the point of today’s lecture -it’s becoming increasingly difficult to find skilled workers, specifically pattern makers, graders and such. If you would like to be notified of opportunities, the first people called these days are college professors. And college professors are going to recommend former students who have kept in touch with them. Now, your situation may be such that you’re not looking for work but this can always change. Therefore, it’s best to make goodwill deposits in your favor bank in advance of need.
All due formalities dispensed with, anyone want a full time job making and grading patterns in Arizona? How about in the LA area? I’ve got two positions I’m trying to help get filled -that I’m not being paid to search for either so don’t make this difficult for me. If you’re interested, send me an email. Oh, you must be able to do tech packs, know Illustrator and while CAD isn’t required for the one job, it would be helpful (the job in Arizona will cover needed training). The job in LA requires CAD expertise, PAD preferred.
