Talking Unemployed CSU Natural Resources Graduate

Love the idea for this post, keep the threads coming...

As the title states, I'm looking for work, and have unfortunately just started to begin my professional networking adventures...

I got my BS from CSU this May in Natural Resources Recreation and Tourism (think applying natural resources management practices to tourism and related industries).

I worked one season from May to the end of October with the BLM as an OHV Recreation Technician, maintaining trails and checking on OHV users.

I have several years experience working with youth of all ages in leadership development and outdoor/experiential education.

I'm currently interning as a Volunteer Coordinator at a non-profit therapeutic horseback riding center in Loveland.

I'm interested in natural resources management, education, youth leadership/development, and private/non-profit organizations working with troubled youth.

Any contacts for people in those fields would be very much appreciated, or even words of advice and points in the right direction.

Thanks so much-
Tread Lightly

Looking for work

I was laid off in June, I’m starting to get a little desperate At this point I’m just looking for a job, any job.

I have 13+ years of experience working in Marketing Communications - b2b marketing, sales support, tradeshows, graphic design, web design, corporate identity, branding, promotions, advertising and PR.

When I was working my way through college I also worked 2+ years as a medical assistant, although I’m not certified. I’ve also worked as a dental office receptionist for a year, and I’ve had a few customer service and inside sales jobs.

I got laid-off

I just lost my job in Pharmaceutical Sales. I have 18+ years as a sales professional with a couple of years Executive experience thrown in at a non-profit, but mostly I'm a sales guy.

Proven performer, always finished in the top 10%, and last year finished in the top 2% and earned "President's Club" recognition.

***Side Note***
I was able to get several weeks of severence, so I don't have to find my next "career" postion right away, but I am looking for part-time work in the meantime. I'm talking just about ANY evening or weekend work just to pay the bills while I job search during the day.

PM me.

Eek Adventure Realtor - Work Hard; Play Hard!

Work Hard, Play Hard!'s a simple motto that we live by.

We earned a GUINNESS WORLD RECORD after a 4 year journey around the world by motorcycles (, and recently returned from 2-months exploring patagonia in Argentina/Chile, including some up-close encounters during the Dakar rally (

As you might imagine, we have some experience in problem solving, networking, and negotiating.

On the work side, we've built our residential real estate business servicing Boulder Country and N. Metro Denver. Recently ranked as the #1 agent at RE/MAX Alliance-Boulder for 2008, and #9 of ALL Colorado RE/MAX agents in April 2008, we understand what it takes to be successful in a challenging environment.

Basically, we bust our butts for our clients for 10-months, answering our phone daily from 7am-10pm, counselling our clients and helping them reach their real estate goals. We'll do what it takes to make our clients happy. Then around Thanksgiving, we take off for 2-months during the winter holidays to travel the world. We left a 950 Adventure down in Buenos Aires, and return in late November 2009 for our next adventure - up through Peru and Ecuador.

Our business is built on referrals; we want to work with people you care about!

I have 10 years experience troubleshooting transport lines from T-1 to OC192 including WDM and DWDM systems. If you're running an office with a few data lines that are plagued by some kind of telco problem, my specialty is working with carriers to permanently resolve trouble.

Given those valuable skills, I'm willing to stud motorcycle tires for anyone. I can do nearly any type of tire as long as it's new. Perfect for those without enough time to do their own. Prices negotiable based on application. One week turnaround.

(If I can generate enough interest, I can add a feeder tube to the stud gun kit.)

Wanted: Artists

Not needing to hire anyone for a regular position (yet), but I occasionally need artwork for T-shirt designs, and can pay by the job. I've found I'm more of a printer and not much of a designer.

I prefer artwork in Adobe Illustrator, and usually need spot color separations- so if you have skills with illustrator and would like to make an occasional extra few $ and get and of course get a sample of your work on a t-shirt, send me a PM.

PS- I often need art of motorcycles...
