"The State of Iowa: let us exceed your already low expectations."

-Raygun T-Shirt

My experience: 8+ months internship experience with a major grocery chain's corporate IT. Travelled all over the midwest during the summer, performing workstation installations, Windows Server and Exchange Server updates, worked with Active Directory, did software updates on Windows Mobile devices, and installed new Dell and Motorola switches. Also dealt with all the headaches/problems that came with it... all while being hundreds of miles away from the corporate office.

When school resumed, I was invited to continue working with the company remotely by doing help desk support for new inventory software rollout. I stayed on with the company through the winter break, where I again travelled to stores and performed further software updates.

During the school year, I work for the university's computer center and work with departments, faculty, staff, and students on recommending computer systems to meet their needs from either Dell or Apple. This is my fourth semester at my current job. We refer most support requests to the support center, but try to assist customers with computer problems whenever possible.

I graduate in May 2009 with a B.S. in Management Information Systems from Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa -- the birthplace of the digital computer.

What I'm looking for: An entry-level IT position somewhere in the midwest dealing with IT infrastructure... systems administrator would be an appealing position. I'm really interested in getting my foot in the door and going from there.

What I'm NOT looking for: Writing hard-core code. If I had wanted to write code for a living, I would've majored in Computer Science. I have a solid understanding of object-oriented programming principles and the systems development life cycle, but my expertise is not with in-depth programming.

Where I live: Ames, IA... near Des Moines, IA.

Where I'm looking: I'm willing to relocate anywhere in the midwest... Minneapolis, Des Moines, Omaha, Kansas City, St. Louis, Milwaukee, Cedar Rapids, Quad Cities... etc.

When I can start: Right after graduation. I graduate with my degree on May 9th, 2009. So the soonest I could start would probably be between May 11th and May 18th, 2009, depending on where the job is located.

Requirements: Benefits (insurance, etc.) are a must. Of course, reasonable pay would be considered important too.

Small freelance gig alert!

Who we are: A dude
Where we are: Minneapolis/St. Paul area
Job title: Tutor (I guess?)
Requirements: Knowledge and experience in implementing just about any aspect of Windows Server 2003. Know your way around a WRT54G. Be able to explain things, don't be a spaz or a low-talker. Maybe know things about web design also.

Benefits: If you're like me, you'll probably have fun doing it. You'll probably make a friend . Oh, and I'm paying, too.

Information: I just moved to the twin cities in January (my fiancee is from here), and i'm looking for someone to spend a few hours (maybe less) helping me with some things. I'm trying to go from a simple, workgroup based, wireless home network to a domain based one with a server running the show.

I already understand the technology decently well but it's all pretty new to me and I would like to have someone on hand to answer a lot of questions and prevent me from ruining everything while I set it all up. The hardware is all pretty much ready to go, so you'll basically be teaching someone how to add a bunch of server roles, make the router cooperate, possibly add a second WRT54G as a bridge, configure the workstations (XP, Vista, 7, MacOS10.4), and then give some advice on administrating the whole thing. If there's time, I might want to throw a VM or two into the mix.

I'm doing this because I'm generally very adept at supporting individual systems but have no experience with anything business-related and would like to set up something from which I can train myself. Also, I'm unemployed and have a lot of time on my hands.

I am currently job-searching and alas, don't have much money, but it is worth a lot to me, and I can afford to pay $15/hr. Beer/snacks will be provided, and since I'm not able to offer what this is probably really worth (am I?) I'm totally willing to do you a favor of a similar magnitude at some point.

My Situation: Company just laid off a large chunk of people, to the point where those of us remaining are scared this is the beginning of the end. I am looking to see if there are any jobs that are very attractive to me before I get to the point of being desperate for a job after having been laid off.

My Experience: 10 years in Network Monitoring/Systems Administration. Background with Linux/Unix administration, Cisco administration/troubleshooting, and Perl scripting. Also have working knowledge of F5 Networks Big-IP, and Citrix Netscaler loadbalancers. My current position has me as "Senior NOC Engineer", but that entails everything from network monitoring and troubleshooting to writing Perl scripts to support junior NOC engineers with day to day tasks, as well as more involved projects like writing a whole network monitoring system in Perl.

What I'm looking for: I would like to move more into the Systems/Tools Engineering side of things. I enjoy programming much more than day to day maintenance, but I will take whatever. A job that offered any type of telecommuting options would be a big plus, as well as 4 or fewer day work weeks.

What I'm NOT looking for: Junior type positions, help desk, answering phones, tier 1 support, etc.

Where I'm looking: Massachusetts. Boston, Springfield, Worcester, wherever. I live in Worcester, which makes me central to just about everything.

Requirements: Benefits (health really), 401k would be a plus

So is this how civilians with no clearance get clearance? I've seen a lot of pretty nice looking jobs in the past that I've had to pass up because they were government work and required a certain clearance level.

Also, we're up to 15 jobs posted (would be 16 but one has been filled). Keep it up!

I'm also curious about this for similar reasons. Security clearance would widen my job prospects significantly, being near a full-size Army base and an Air Force base that are fairly consistent employers. The Googling I've done on the subject has been inconclusive at best, and most of it seems to suggest that for a civilian to get security clearance you have to be selected for a job that requires security clearance, and it seems like you'd be fighting an uphill battle for that at best.

Is there more that I'm missing?

Not really, the easiest ways are to know someone doing the hiring and able to get you in, start a uncleared job and the transfer over to a job requiring clearance, join the Military, or get lucky and have a great resume and skill set but only lacking clearance.

A dog? Never!!

My Situation: Just been informed that keeping me on salary is too expensive in the present climate since clients are now hanging onto their money like grim death and mucking up our cashflow goddammit.

My Experience: 8 years of working for a tech support company that supported small businesses with networks ranging from 2 workgrouped computers to Windows server-based domains. Focused on all flavours of Windows (mostly Server 2003 and XP Pro ATM) but I can get Macs connected to a network and talking to Exchange Server and such. I don't have any particular speciality; I'd just go out and fix whatever went wrong or whatever was being complained about with brain, Google and manufacturers' helplines. Desktop support too; I'm apparently pretty good about explaining things to users in terms they understand without making them feel like idiots.

What I'm looking for: Pretty much the same would be nice; I like the variety, I like making things work again and I'm good at it.

What I'm NOT looking for: Good question. I need work and I'm not sure how picky I can afford to be, so I'll revise this as I learn.

Where I'm looking: I live in SE London (20 minutes from London Bridge by train) and don't want to sell up and move, so somewhere in commuting range.

Requirements: Again, to be revised as I learn about what's on offer and what I can expect.

Also, we're up to 15 jobs posted (would be 16 but one has been filled). Keep it up!

A couple years ago I lost my job in Credit Union software. I was looking all over the place for a new gig, and I found a company hiring ~10 software developers and systems administrators to work at Hill Air Force Base here in Utah as contractors. The job required "Ability to obtain top secret clearance" since it was in one of the DISA's datacenter buildings and the entire building requires that sort of clearance (on top of being on a highly secured AFB).

When I got into the interviews, I actually asked them outright, "what kind of a disadvantage am I facing against these other guys? It sounds like they all currently work on base and currently have a clearance." It was a "hiring fair" at a hotel because this company did not actually have a branch in Utah, so the competition was in the lobby. The other applicants were quite surprised that anybody even responds to the token newspaper ad-they pretty much thought the job was going to be given to whomever ditched the other contracting firm working on another project in the same building at Hill AFB, and they were all out on lunch from Hill AFB.

The interviewer told me that he was genuinely interested in finding very good contracting employees and that would be more important than whether I had a clearance currently. He also told me that it was only a cost of around $3000 to get me a clearance, and they were hiring for a pretty senior position which made that minor. This particular interviewer was also an retired air force major who told me that they wouldn't be discriminating against me for my hair cut these days either as long as I could do the job. I had a serious financial systems background, and it ended up that behind all that federal contracting secrecy and work "on base" and security clearances, they wanted work done on the next generation of IRS eFile forms for business and international business taxes (I only found this out when they offered me the job). I also wonder if I got a job offer because I have a decent security background, probably better than the other applicants. Probably didn't hurt that I could bullshit with the interviewers about 30year old mainframe technologies used exclusively in the financial industry either (Interviewers like to talk about what they have seen and where they have been sometimes, and this particular interviewer was an old guy executive like that, he had 20yrs on the air force major).

I accepted the job offer and they told me to show up in two weeks. Then my wife and I drove to mexico and sat on the beach for a week. When I got back I had a bunch of voicemails with somebody trying to get ahold of me and start processing my clearance stuff, then finally a voicemail saying they moved on to another candidate. At the time, it was kinda devastating and it sucked that I didn't get the clearance, it probably does open job opportunities. I honestly think the company liked me but they probably found somebody that would be cheaper to hire given a solid week to think about it--I got tons of job offers but very few companies were willing to pay what I required. It ended up being an okay thing, I found a job at a much more stable corporation with the same pay and 40mins closer to my house within 2 months. And sometimes I get to work with world class military surveillance technology at my new job, probably more exciting than the IRS gig I had lined up.

Sorry to derail the thread a bit, but from everything that I've heard they cost much, much more that 3 grand. Unless its a confidential which isn't more than a criminal and background/credit check.

From what I've heard it can cost anywhere from 30-150k (edit...looked this up, from what i can find on the internet its more like 4000-20,000 depending on circumstances, I guess word of mouth at work isn't worth much) to get the clearance through (it's a sometimes year long process) I could be wrong on this but that's the word from my employer.

Anyways, If you can get a TS clearance or at least Secret clearance with a job take it. It'll open a lot of opportunities should you ever want to change jobs in the future. They are usually good for a few years.

As far as security clearances go, from what I've read you cannot get one on your own. It's pretty much a bitch to get because you need the clearance for a job but in order to get the clearance you need to be employed by a company willing to pay for you to get it, which are usually the same companies you are trying to work for. That, or join the military heh

I work at a large computer security vendor. Well, a small part of it, and I'm only posting positions within the unit I work for.

We're looking for a couple of positions in Gloucester, England (possibly also Toronto, Canada)

- architect for the malware team. this is a pretty specialized and senior position that requires decade+ antivirus/antimalware experience as well as deep industry knowledge, but it's really neat. if you know your poo poo about this industry or know someone who does.

- dev manager for the malware dev team. this is a much more generic position. you should probably know c++ and perl, ISP experience a plus, agile methods, design patterns, yadda yadda.

Toronto-centric postings:

- database QA person for MSSQL
- a couple of software engineers; we need a variety of things like C# and perl. one of the jobs is an engineering automation job if you like scripting more than software eng.

DM me your email address if you're interested and I'll send links to the postings, or email leigh at (my username) dot ca

Just to comment a bit more on the security clearance questions:

You cannot get a security clearance yourself. You also cannot hold one indefinitely without a reason to have it. If you needed it and then you quit/move to a job that doesn't require it, you will lose it after some "grace period" generally.

To get a clearance requires a "sponsor" which is some company (or the government itself) who are doing work that has been deemed worthy of such a thing. If it's a company, the company is required to foot the bill to get you a clearance. If it's the government, they don't care but they (we all are) paying for it too. Joining the military is a way to get a SECRET clearance pretty easily. If you do intelligence work or something else requiring access to something higher, you will be put in for a TOP SECRET access.

The costs associated with getting a security clearance can vary wildly depending on your personal history. If you want to see a form you will be commonly required to fill out look at OPM form SF-86: http://www.opm.gov/Forms/pdf_fill/sf86.pdf. This is a very common "entry point" for getting a security clearance (at least for a TOP SECRET, I suspect a SECRET clearance is something much less intrusive).

Cost and time to get a clearance are also directly correlated to the type of clearance required. A SECRET clearance can usually be had pretty quickly as long as you don't have a felony record and aren't on some FBI watch list. A TOP SECRET or TOP SECRET SCI clearance could take anywhere from a couple of months to a year (or more) to come through. If you are employed by a company, that means they have to put you on the payroll to get you processed for the clearance and then pay you to sit around not doing what they hired you for until you get said clearance. You can see where this is going...

My guess is that most job postings that say they require an active clearance means "we're not going to pay to get you a clearance and for you to wait around for it". You could always apply and see what happens though!

Do you perhaps have a disposable email address for non-plats?

My Experience: No relevant work experience really. As for non-relevant work I've done everything from telemarketing to restaurant and warehouse work. I have a decent grasp of python and Java, and I'm starting to familiarize myself with C++. I'm ok with html/CSS.

What I'm looking for: Pretty much anything I can learn from. I will work for cheap and strongly consider working for free on an interesting project.

Where I'm looking: My travel is restricted to Rhode Island, so I can only actually physically show up to a place there, but I'd be willing telecommute or do stuff online.

Contact jjttjj@gmail.com or PM me.

I'm not trying to be smug but consider working on a name brand open source project. Pick something like Apache/Firefox/MySQL or something and just help close up bugs.

Download the source, look at the list of open bugs, keep reading the source code and docs till you think you know whats wrong and submit a patch. If the docs dont match the source code send a patch for them.

From a hiring point of view I love people who have done that sort of stuff because it means they are a) smart enough to be given a huge source tree and go off and read it till they understand it, and b) are actually interested in programming to the point they do it in their spare time, as those people are generally good programmers.

Do this while you're at uni for a few years and stick it on your CV. Be sure to pick a big project that most people will recognize. Expect it to take you 3-6 months before you can do anything of use. You will learn a lot, and once you submit a few good patches the developers are usually happy to spend time explaining things.

My experience: 7 years supporting all IT requirements for a broad range of small-medium enterprise clients (<75 users) using predominantly Windows-based environments, with a little Unix/Linux/MacOS thrown in. BSc majoring in Compsci.
What I'm looking for: Full time, part time, or contract work preferably in a server administration or network management / planning capacity. Also interested in project management roles, or web development positions.
What I'm NOT looking for: Level 1 Helpdesk, Desktop support, that sort of boring, unchallenging crap. A little of either in a role is OK, but it better be only a little.
Where I live: Auckland, NZ
Where I'm looking: Will consider pretty much anywhere in New Zealand or Australia.
When I can start: Depending on possible relocation requirements, approx 1 months notice.
Requirements: Positive environment. Flexible work hours or remote work possibilities would be ideal but not a necessity.
Can be reached via: This thread, PM, wedgeystyk@hotmail.com

Looking for web design expert in London area for innovative project

I have some innovative website design ideas that require some crazy programming skills that I don't have, so I am looking for someone to collaborate with me. I can do research, marketing, graphics, sample data, etc, just no way I could learn all the programming knowledge that some of you guys have sitting there unused.

The ideas have so far been developed as an improved website for a major poker magazine, which the editor liked very much, but that the publisher rejected as the magazine only has two IT personnel so they would have been unable to implement it, but the unique design elements can be adapted for a range of website purposes.

I'm obviously not going to tell everyone here the specifics, I would like to talk them through in person, but here are some general things you must be able to make:

Objects that can be dragged and dropped by website users resulting in database alteration.
Interactive mini-programs (can probably be done in flash).
Possibly creation of user-side program installation.

When developed, the designs can either be sold to other companies or used as templates to base commissioned websites around.

I would prefer someone in London so we can discuss everything in person. I have no capital, so this is something that we will have to work on while doing other things for income, at least until it is ready to be sold.

If you think you may be able to collaborate, please e-mail me at tmpsotw@hotmail.com.
Please make sure you can do at least the three things specified above!
