first miss of the year

Yes, I missed a post yesterday. Spent too much time looking at jobs and what might be wrong with my resume’ preventing me from getting jobs. I also did not look at my task list for yesterday which was the problem, the other was an excuse.

Today’s actions will be updating my resume’ again. There are a few things I need to do. This may take all day or just a few hours. In either case it needs to be done.

Complicated matters

Unemployment card came but when I tried to transfer funds to my bank account it failed. The funds were not lost but were just put back on the card. Not sure what happened, too much was transferred a one time is a possibility. I have adjusted that and only transferred 1000.00 today, we will see happens now. I should know by tomorrow.

I need to go back through all my posts and get rid of any I think need to be deleted to save space for the more important posts.

I have been getting into Microsoft’s SQL Server and blender again along with the Python course. Busy times right now.

I have a couple phone calls to make today for some jobs. Cross your fingers.

Looks like i need to start hounding the unemployment office.

That is correct. I have not received any unemployment debit card or any payouts since I started this process. I did receive an email stating they have someone looking at my claim to avoid any fraud, but this is getting ridiculous.

Angie needed some money (go figure) for her son and an attorney, agreeing to send me her job card to pay me back because I took the money from a credit card. Guess what, yep you are correct, she has neglected to send me the card yet. If this is another one of her and her family’s swindles, I’m done with her. Which makes me incredibly happy to have hooked up with Carrie Mattern again.

Companies do not acknowledge your applications

I have found during this trying time of applying for new jobs is companies, for the most, part do not acknowledge that fact you have applied for a job at thier company. There seems to be zero back and forth communication. You don’t know they received your resume or cover letter and the worst possible situation you have no idea about any decisions they may have made. I will point out a couple that have communicated.

  1. The Boeing Company
  2. LMI

That would be the only companies that has provided any communication regarding job applications.

After that little vent, here is a quick render of some quick textures I have created for the Modular Dungeon Maze. I did truly little UV mapping, only to size the bricks equally (by eye) from the Roof to the walls.

Very little UV mapping, only to the extent of sizing the bricks between the roof and wall. Render engine if Eevee.

Oklahoma job match came through

I received a Manufacturing Engineering job from OKJobmatch.com this past week and it looks like the perfect match. I am missing the degree and the preferred Oil and Gas experience, but I have all other qualifications as well as other preferred qualifications such as advanced Microsoft software aptitude and being an SAP subject matter expert, I hope will get me the job. I know Oil and Gas is at times just as volatile as the aircraft industry I would love this opportunity. I updated my resume to match and highlight the qualifications I have and applied.

Another job sent to me was for a Process Engineer at Ducommun and when it comes to a degree there was no requirement, just a preference. Along with the resume update I also created a cover letter I can easily revise for each job I apply for. I hope I find some on a very consistent basis and can finally get some income coming in.

I’ll be praying and possibly crossing my fingers!

Very depressed last week

I could not believe I was told I was not qualified for a job. The email was obviously written by an HR bot and my resume’ was not read by a person. I will need to tailor all my applications to the specific job. Because of this I will make this a fantastic week and apply for as many jobs as I can.

happy new year!

I spent all last week talking to Carrie Mattern, the woman, when I was working at Boeing, I had the biggest crush on. We spent hours video chatting and just talking, it was great until….

She became obsessed! Was sending me pictures and texting constantly.

While looking for jobs, other activities

While looking for jobs I have also been learning Python scripting as well as working in Blender again. Below is a picture of some dungeon pieces with will piping I was working on.

Creating the pieces straight, curved etc. was at first a challenge, but I have been working with Blender so long soon I was clicking way and things were coming together. The instructor was using techniques much slower and less precise than mine. I thought this was strange because precision is particularly important in this project.

As I work, I’ll post updates to these pictures.

Dungeon with pipes less material and textures
Materials added.

It is officially the holiday season and do not expect any phone calls from business or recruiters about jobs for at least a week. I still must do my job searches for unemployment. I am really hoping for the jobs I applied for at L3 or Ducommun here in Tulsa.
