Working for 20 years as a Manufacturing Engineer for various Aerospace companies the only 3D programs I had any interaction with were CATIA, Solidworks, AutoCad and NCAD so it is no surprise Blender is a new world. I love it!
I also enjoy most outdoor activities, fishing, hiking, camping etc. Most music and College Football (UW Huskies!). Favorite vacation spot: Hawaii.
As the title says, I have not heard back from Houston yet.
I feel this may have been a good thing. I really did not think I would be a good fit there and given they said they would contact me early the next week and I did not I question their ability to commit. A phone call only takes five minutes.
I had my first interview last Friday. It went ok but I’m not sure if I am a fit. They are looking for someone that has more of a machining background than I have. I like that fact it is a small company with approximately 200 people. Everyone will know everyone. This could be a good thing or a bad think. The gentile men I spoke with were all extremely easy to talk to and seemed quite nice.
I registered for Upward.net and Ziprecruiter. Both sites are continually active, and I am getting jobs flowed down to me almost hourly.
Finances are ok but people I loaned money to seem to have forgotten that I am expecting to be paid back. Total now is 2,790.00 with no payment that I can foresee.
When transferring money from the unemployment account to my netspend account I was experiencing problems. It was because it is essentially a prepaid debit card, and it just would not work. Last week I opened a new checking account at a ‘real’ bank. This should make things easier. I was going to change my automatic payments to my credit cards and pay those off with the unemployment card and I found out that can’t happen. You can only make payments on credit cards with a bank account and not a debit card.
It is now March of 2021 and jobs are now starting to post. I was put in for a job in Houston, TX last week and hopefully get and interview. I will be putting in for an interview in Mojave, CA this week. Crossing fingers. All jobs are Manufacturing Engineering jobs.
Forgot, I also have another Manufacturing Engineering, Composite’s job I will be applying for this week in Denver, CO.
I am stilling hoping for a job at Spirit AeroSystems here in Tulsa, OK or the American Airlines job I applied for a couple of weeks ago. Those would be perfect.
Additionally, the Houston job could include a moving allowance (That would be necessary).
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.
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.
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.
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.
The Boeing Company
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.
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!
