Not "What do you want?". ("Never ask that question!") But - what do you need? Are you looking for an apartment, a job, a ride to somewhere, assistance with something? Post here, and maybe one of my readers can help you! It's happened before.

I need to know how to write a VBscript for a report within the next 24 hours otherwise I've been threatened with a write-up.

Guess who never wrote anything more than a simple If Then one before :/

I can't help with vb script but your boss sucks.

A place to live, where I can pay month to month until I am solidly employed again), with 2 cats, starting on September 1st, hopefully costing $500-600.and near public transit because the seizures, which happen less than 6 times a year, still happen enough to keep me from driving.

If you want something like that in Portland, OR, I can give you some information. I'm guessing that's not the case, though.

I need a plus-size black waist-cincher or underbust corset (to fit a size 22-26 pant, depending on manufacturer, measurements available upon request) for a relatively inexpensive price or for borrowing, for my costume in a rock opera performance in Seattle in September and October.

I'd just commission someone to make me one locally but am already having the dress custom-made and that plus the wireless transmitter for my electric violin is draining most of my available cash. :/
11th-Aug-2010 05:10 pm (UTC)
I can totally recomend Hipsandcurves.com
The boned corsets are of very sturdy make and they deliver quickly.
The prices are generally $150 for the steel boned.

Just moved to Central Oregon (Bend), and need a job. I have an A.A., creative writing/retail/animal training/large amount of cash handling experience, and am a fast learner and a dedicated employee. I'm willing to move to the coastal side of the mountains (Salem, Eugene, Portland) if there are job opportunities, as things are starting to get tight over here.

I need some time off. In the past year, not taking into account holidays, I've taken exactly 2 days off. 4 weeks of vacation time will roll off into "sick time" come Sept. 1 ... what a waste. I gotta figure out something different.

I'm looking into getting a certificate in Database Management at the community college where I work part-time. I have to choose between SQL and Oracle. I need to know the difference in the real world job opportunities to help me decide which to do.

I live in naperville (a burb of chicago), and my job is ending in late september so a Job would be great. I have a bachelor's in Business CIS and am nearly done with a masters, I've worked help desk for one year and worked in the government for 2 years, I'm hardworking and learn fast so it doesn't have to be a strickly Tech job.

I need a job in the Hartford area. I won't be able to move for three more years - the only way I could do a Boston-area job would be with free crash space on the Boston end for weekdays, and even that would be seriously dicey, or if it paid enough to justify two hours' commute each way.

I'm a professionally trained baker, but I also have solid office admin skills -- all the usual Microsoft programs, sure, but give me an hour and a manual and I'll be up and running on ANY end-user program, I've done it before. I've just finished up working as a census crew leader, so I've got supervisory and what amounts to HR experience.

Anything?
11th-Aug-2010 02:59 pm (UTC)
My boyfriend can use a decent job. He's in the Seattle area. I'm not sure what he's looking for off the top of my head, but can get the info tonight.
11th-Aug-2010 04:13 pm (UTC)
If he thinks that 911 dispatching might be to his interest, several local agencies are hiring and starting pay is really decent. I've been in the profession for 10+ years and am happy to answer any questions. GED or high school diploma and the ability to type 40+wpm are the basic requirements.

If anyone happens to know some kind, nifty, relatively financial solvent people in the DC area who need a place to live and would like to be near downtown, please feel free to send them my way.

I'm currently looking for housemates and would like to have folks lined up by the end of the month.

Thanks as always for doing these kinds of things and using your awesome connecting skills for good!

Also, Babylon 5 allusions make me LOL with happy geekishness ;)

I could actually use someone to type up some of my student evaluations so that I can send them out with job applications. I think I've got 6 classes worth.

For money, obviously.

Quite simply, like everybody else, I'm sure, I need a job. Phlebotomy by preference, since I am certified and trained now and all ... but I've done customer service in general since I was sixteen years old. All sorts of customer service. Security, hotel night audit, and live help for Lulu.com, in the last ten years. At this point, I'm even willing to move out of Raleigh, or North Carolina entirely, if there's a steady job at the other end.
16th-Aug-2010 04:33 pm (UTC)
You've probably looked all up and down the university system, but I'd suggest finding out what temp service UNC hospital is using for records-- that is the best way to move into other, real hospital jobs there.

Also, if just anything might work, I just got a 'looking for' email on the ABCDurham list (I live in Downtown Durham and work in Chapel Hill) for a sales/design job... if you like, email me at lochinvar at gmail dot com, and I'll fwd the post. I have another friend who does labwork in Hillsboro I'll ask as well whether his lab has something in Phlebotomy-- I gotta ask him anyway for another friend who is an anesthesiologist.

Good luck!

Ooh, thank you for putting this together :)

I need a (Cambridge/Boston/on-the-T) job! (Or, at least, advice as to what I can do to make my skillsets more attractive for this kind of work.) I'm looking for a foot in the door doing one of two things:

1. Front-end web development. I know (X)HTML and CSS flat, and am excited about HTML5 (cue happy geeky early adopter attitude); I've worked with jQuery before, and can generally modify pre-written JavaScript to make it do what I want. I'd put my SQL skills at advanced-beginner to intermediate level, and I'm working on a project right now that will put all of these skills together in web-demo-able form while learning enough PHP to make it work. I've got Photoshop experience as well, and can create visuals in PS and then turn around and make them into actual pages or templates. Ideally, it'd be something where I'd get a chance to really expand my SQL experience and skills and get more database creation experience.

2. Being a social media/SEO/analytics wonk - because this stuff tickles my brain and makes me happy and I inhale articles and analysis on it like oxygen. Particularly on the "using my brain to evaluate and organize data sensibly" end, it fits with my long-term plan of getting a master's degree in information science. I probably have more "social media" experience than either of the other two (I juggle too many Twitter accounts, and point to LJ as a key example of "social networking before it was called that,") but I feel like my natural skills are more on the analysis/advice-giving end than the "being a community leader/face-of-the-company" end.

We have a bunch of IT stuff open and we are right across from Wellington in Medford.

Clients. People in the Steamboat Springs or Denver area who want a kick-ass massage and are able to pay for it. (Or, possibly, at StrowlerFest next month.)

I need office managers at doctor's offices to call me back. Six weeks and multiple messages is a bit ridiculous.

I need mesh-type portable electric fencing and a battery in order to keep the goats from wandering the neighborhood while eating.

Once more into the breach....

My partner needs a job in his field in the semiconductor industry. His specialty is back-end, not front-end. In other words, he does design rules verification for chips and microcircuitry, not programming, not systems administration, not tech support. While he can do some layout and some mask design, his experience and strength is in DRC/LVS. Location is not an issue, although first preference would be in the United States.

I need a job.

I'm in the Greater Philadelphia (PA) area, and I'm looking for something related to art, education, and/or development, preferably in the non-profit sector.

I really need a job.
11th-Aug-2010 03:34 pm (UTC)
Actually, I could also use two or three knitters to test out some stitch markers that I'm thinking about making to sell. So if you have a use for some free stitch markers, we can work out an arrangement.
11th-Aug-2010 03:35 pm (UTC)
I'm all about that.

I don't think there's anything I need at the moment (that I can have, anyway) but I just wanted to say I really dig how you work your LJ-superpowers to serve the greater good, Shira. <3

I would love to be able to pick someone's brain about setting up a home-based business/Etsy/etc. sort of thing in terms of pitfalls to avoid, best practices, etc.
11th-Aug-2010 03:53 pm (UTC)
I've had an Etsy shop for 3 years and I'm happy to discuss it with you. :)
11th-Aug-2010 03:47 pm (UTC)
I need a new job. Preferably in the DC/MD/Philly/DE region. I am a wildlife naturalist by training. I am also really good at organizing things.
12th-Aug-2010 04:56 pm (UTC)
I need tomato sauce recipes, and recipes for squash based dishes. I haven't really played with either foodstuff yet :-)
