Default Thank you Granholm!!

For doing so much in helping this state become last in the nation for new job growth. I was just notified my employment will be ending on friday. No work. No job. If anyone knows of a company needing a C.A.D. operator with 8 years experience and knows Unigraphics, Solid Edge, Autocad and most microsoft programs (Excel, Word...etc.) please E-mail me at Bowesmobile@talkamerica.net. I know I'm new here. But hey, every little bit helps.

Cheers,
Shane

Yes, Granholm single handedly sunk the Auto Industry and more importantly all manufacturing jobs in the state . . . I think your giving her a little bit more credit then she deserves.

It's weird that you think the governer has the power to do that . . . o wait she doesn't.

I do remember that time where she ALSO went back in time and SUNK the Titanic :miff:

Edit: Come on, you remember when she morphed into an iceburg. . . . O wait, Iceburgs can't sink boats either, you have to run into them so I guess see didn't skink the titanic. . . . opps . . .

Good luck. I've been looking in that field for some time now and have had no luck. My current job has been slow and I've been laid off a few times this year.

Damn straight. Just like Clinton fixed the US economy with the "changes" he made in 1993.

However, seemingly rational people will argue that Dubya singlehandedly invented the world economy and outsourcing, depressed teh U.S. economy, killed the stock market rally, and raised oil prices...

In our system, the executive branch "head of state" (federal, state, or local) are really not that powerful.

I hope you find something good, and soon!

That's much closer to the truth - although it's more her party collectively than her individually.

HA industries. We make stand alone machine assembly machines for grilles and interiors.

Scooter,
I put in my resume for the first position you listed. Man what a pain. But its worth it in the end, if I get hired.

Sorry to hear about your misfortune that sux. Yes there are lot's of CAD jobs out there right now but most of which dont pay nearly what they should. I've even seen CAD jobs listed for a starting pay of $9.00 hr.
Hopefully you will find something soon and with good pay as well Best of luck to ya

Try looking in another field. Take this as a oppurtunity to pursue something you would really love to do. I thought it was a horrible thing when my previous company soldout and shut us down. Now I work somewhere with better money and benefits and a retirement plan. Job changes are not always a bad thing, make the most out of it.GOOD LUCK!!
