Thank you for wanting to help with my job search! Here are some parameters. Keeping it brief.
Part time remote, text based support. It's a little far fetched, I get it, but the positions do exist. I enjoy having the flexibility to take on temporary projects from time to time!
Online temporary volunteering is okay as well. You can find me on CareerVillage and Jumpstart.
Azure, Cisco routing and switching.
Jobs: Networking, SysAdmin, IT Support, Technical Consulting
I'm not super interested in hardcore Cybersecurity.
Some companies I will jump to work at, irregardless of size, but preferably under 500 people worldwide. If you need some short term work for a startup, I'm fine with that.
I prefer to listen to others rather than talk myself.
Not interested in a suit and tie culture.
Aspects of my past jobs include A) being nearly alone or working with only one other person. I've enjoyed that because I can solve the problem how I see fit, and ask for help when I need to.
I'm learning to work with others through Zoom meetings, where one can be a little less 'on'.
I like processes, even if they have to be broken or bent. A creative, free-form conversation about implementing something new is fine. "We're just starting, we'll make up HR as we go." is not.
Past experiences have taught me: If you give me a general task to do and the freedom to do so, I'm fine.
E-mails over phone calls. It's easier to go back and reference the information.
I'll get on the phone, just temper your expectations for the first 5 minutes.
I give you the information you need to do your job, and I'll explain the finer points if need be. With this blog, I like to think I'm pretty good at explaining!
Am I smiling over the phone? Not likely. Am I listening closely? Yes.
I work better with people who accept that I may have a few questions, and don't try to brush me off.
Would you work with someone who tries to be coy with surface level information, such as hours or wages?
I don't mind someone not knowing an answer - "I'm not sure, it can vary." is fine.
I'm not asking for your bank account number. Just information so I can do the job.
As most of my career has been working solitary, I don't have that corporate America, endless meeting experience, and I am not interested in it.
Ed Tech - Tech that helps students learn, understand, or take their first steps into college or the working world.
Entertainment - You see how important it is now, don't you?
New and Changing Industries - I like being in that sweet spot, of "not in diapers, but not old enough to think remote work is the devil".
Fitness - Raise your hand if you do a workout before bed yet after dinner and end up hungry at night ✋🏾
Marketing / Advertising - It's a field that constantly entertains me with its creative evolution. Look how excited I was about this!
Not the US Government/DoD or Amazon. Amazon subsidiaries are a case by case basis.
Most of my work has been solo or in very small groups; I don't have the typical 'office' experience. I don't know if I want it. I don't fancy getting dressed up every day to go into work.
It takes some time to get into the swing of things. I don't mind growing with new projects in an established company after a time. If I'm interested, I'll be asking a lot of questions to truly make sure this is right.
I do not have a security clearance.
It's all a case-by-case basis.
East Coast preferred.
Deep South is a no.
Central/South FL is okay
