Well, when we look at interns or junior guys, we don't expect a big shipped product. Hell, you'd be surprised how many senior engineers have never actually been with a project from start to ship (most of them). What you need to show off is your interest in programming. Put the projects you HAVE done in a nice portfolio and show them off.

Everyone starts somewhere, and walking in as a kid will have people expecting very little. You only stand to impress with some actual tangible projects.

My situation: Laid off from a small business based out of Granbury, TX that brokered armored vehicles internationally. Boss hired a CJ in Dubai, didn't think he'd need me anymore. Since there's no opportunities in Granbury, I'll be moving in with a friend in Phoenix, AZ (Mesa) (it makes more sense for me to move to PHX and crash on my friend's couch for a bit than it does to commute 1.5 - 2 hours to DFW for a month or so). I'm still trying to get through school, but I'll schedule classes around whatever job I have.

My experience: (I'm sorry if this is long winded) Student working towards a BSc Computer Science. Computer Science classes taken have been with Java. I've gotten into the basics of PHP and Ruby on Rails. For airsoft, I programmed an Arduino to behave like the bomb from Counter-Strike. (it used LEDs and a speaker) Have working knowledge of HTML / CSS, definitely know my way around Plesk / CPanel / phpMyAdmin. I know Wordpress like the back of my hand, I've messed with an awful lot of CMS's (WP, ExpressionEngine, Joomla, e107, PostNuke) and forums as a hobby since I was fourteen. (21 now) I've probably built around thirty computers by now.

At the armored vehicle company, I put up two Wordpress based websites, managed their emails with Plesk, and implemented SugarCRM. I made the company overhaul their security, as for passwords they were using dictionary words followed by numerical sequences (i.e. poodle1234) as well as an archaic wireless router with WEP. I made all of the technology purchase decisions and did their brochures / quotes. For several months I also did QA for Gearbox Software, where I tested Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway. So I'm familiar with JIRA as well.

What I'm looking for: Entry level / CJ / help desk / paid intern type work.
What I'm NOT looking for: Retail / Sales
Where I live: Granbury, TX (looking to relocate)
Where I'm looking: Phoenix, AZ area
When I can start: Late May, possibly earlier if needed ASAP
Requirements: Health insurance is a must.
Can be reached via: This thread, PM,
edit: I've updated my website so that it catalogues most of the stuff I've done pretty well

Get off my lawn.


Unfortunately, this position has been dropped. I'll update if it opens up again.

My boss and I are currently looking for someone with some formal test, network, and wireless experience.

What we're looking for: A test/QA engineer who will step up and own tasks given to him/her, with experience in core networking (LAN/WAN, WiFi b/g/n) and some understanding of 3G wireless technologies (CDMA 1x/EVDO, GSM/UMTS GPRS/EDGE/HSPA). Previous experience working with embedded devices that run Linux is very helpful. Some basic programming skills (Perl/C/C++) are also helpful. This position will be responsible for generating and executing system and functional software tests on our products and should have experience writing test plans, executing tests, tracking bugs, managing software builds and releases, and going to lunch at 11AM before the crowds show up.

Concerning the test writing and development, there is very little in the way of requirements and other documentation (though I'm working on that) so a keen understanding of how networks operate and how the technologies we use as a system work together will be key. And, for poops and giggles, once the tests are written, we'd like to automate them. Any skills you have in systems engineering, mechanical or electrical design, and/or successfully cracking wise will give you an edge.

What we're not looking for: People who lack a basic understanding of all the systems and technologies mentioned above. People who don't communicate well. People who don't play well with others. People who have problems working for a fat guy (me). People who have problems working without close supervision and constant direction.

Location: Sunny San Diego, California

Approximate opening date: Last week would be awesome. (Read: immediately.)

Benefits: Health, Dental, Aflac (if you're nice they'll give you a stuffed duck), 401k, basic life insurance

Notes: We're a pretty small organization that has been around about five years. This position may (or may not) report to me, but will certainly report to my boss if nothing else. A word of caution: we regularly are involved in firedrill tasks, meaning that things were not planned out and we have to make up for it. It is frustrating sometimes but we solider on. YMMV.

Contact: PM me or send e-mail to with your resume and why you think you piss excellence.

She is a cat of significant gravy.


I'm a CJ and another tech at the local Sheriffs office quit full time but he's still on part time. The last guy did not understand what "name of the server" meant, but he knew how to use Access. The database that you'll help support is on Windows ME or 98 or some stupid OS because something was written in VisualBasic and can't be easily ported over to something worthwhile. You won't have to work near me, you would be about one mile away so you won't be able to smell me. You'll get to see us every other Tuesday though.

Who they are: Williamson County Sheriffs Office in Tennessee
Where: Franklin, TN
Title: Juvenile Services System Technician
Description: The Williamson County Government Juvenile Services Department is accepting applications for a Computer Systems Technician. This position will support the information technology system for the offices of the Williamson County Juvenile Services Department. Must have programing experience with Microsoft Access database as well as experience with Windows XP operating systems and Novell client/server software. Must be able to respond after hours for critical system problems for those offices that are open 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

If you wish to get into the exciting world of computer janitoring you can apply here:
They are no longer accepting applications

As far as I know you won't be supporting their network.

If they offer the same benefits as the rest of the county you get full health insurance and some other goodies. Full time employees have 5% taken from each pay check to pay into TCRS which is a retirement fund for Tennessee government workers.

Edit: I should not have put who "we" are, changed it to who "they" are. I am a tech for the general county, the job is for the Sheriffs Office which is funded by the county.

Edit 2: More information on that database, it's one of those databases that people think are far more important than it really is. There's nothing super complicated with it according to the director of IT.

Job Title: Ruby on Rails developer
Location: Seattle, WA
Benefits: Health, Dental, 401k, basic life insurance, >= 3 weeks paid leave a year

What we're looking for: A third core Rails developer to round out our team. Someone who can own a feature or problem and run with it, rather than needing a lot of babysitting. Experienced web programmers familiar with MVC frameworks. Professional Rails experience preferred but NOT a requirement. If you've done something more than a "hello, world" and want to be thrown head-first into a professional Rails project, we want to talk to you.

What we're not looking for: People who hate church, Agile development practices, or macs.

Notes: Offered pay tends toward the high end of the listing scale, as due to the nature of the product and the immaturity of the Rails career ecosystem, a well-matched candidate is hard to find. If this sounds like a fit for you, it probably is, and we're going to do our best to make sure you're compensated accordingly. We are willing to relocate you as well. Also, we won't make you work 8-5 and you can work flex time, but don't tell HR.

Also, it's not the Fox-news watching, James Dobson-spouting, moralist-scolding right wing atmosphere you might fear from a Bible publishing company. We don't filter your internet, we won't fire you for cussing, and Friday is beer day. We expect professionalism, not monoculture.

5 years clerical work in libraries. Recently, about two years of misc. under the table tech support stuff, working in generally horrible networking conditions with no budget or sympathy from the management. Read: 20 host network without a server and in some cases no commercial anti virus. They "discovered" I was good with computers and set me about "solving" their tech issues. I still don't want my fingerprints on their train wreck. They didn't increase my pay, and their constant praise and rear end kissing isn't making up for that anymore. I'm not being arrogant, I'm just tired of going to these committee meetings where I try to explain why $1000/year just won't cut it for the tech budget to a bunch of 50 year old women.

Do any of you use LinkedIn? I have a profile on there but I really don't "get" the site... it looks like it has the potential to be a really powerful networking tool, but it doesn't seem very well organized and I always get frustrated when I'm on it.

"Your profile is 55% complete you lazy bum"

Any tips? Are the job searches directly linked to your connections, meaning the more connections I make, the better search results I get? I really don't get it. Anyway, if anybody wants my profile send me an email or PM. I talk a lot of poo poo about my employer here so it's probably in my best interest to not publicly post who it is.

I don't know too much about it, but afaik the searches aren't related to your connections. It's more that having more connections and recommendations from other people makes the people posting the jobs more likely to look at your application.

That's why you'll see stuff like this:

It's supposed to be a more automated networking tool, so you can get connected with employers based on connections through people you know and what they say about you without having to have them formally introduce you.

It seems pretty nice, but the caveat is that you need to know a bunch of people (or at least one I guess) who are also on LinkedIn and are willing to update their page and give you recommendations so you seem legit and not like some crazy person on the internet.
