    Well...My potential job fell through so now I am in the process of career searching.  
    I know that networking is the best way to get your name out so here I go...
    I recently graduated from the University of North Florida with a BA in Criminology and Criminal Justice.  I have an up to date resume so if anyone knows of anyone hiring I’m all ears.  I have many years of customer service experience so please don't feel that Criminal Justice is the only thing that I would be interested in.  I am open to new learning experiences.  I am a fast enthusiastic learner.  I am known for achieving and exceeding goals.  So, please if you or someone you might know that might be interested in seeing my resume please email me at  Thank you for your consideration.

    It is all about networking.  Due to a chapter 11 and closing of my division the job I had for about the last decade ended and I have been out of work for 2 months.  I talked to everyone I knew, told them what I wanted, and in the end I had four good offers to choose from.   Friends and colleagues are a blessing, and all seemed to want to help so don't hesitate to reach out (and likewise, return the favor when you can).

    I have accepted a position and will start June 2.  All the honey-dos are just about done, and note that the winds will lay down starting that week.   :p  

    Might help if you explain what you like to do, what your interests are, and your career goals.

    Good luck, hang in there, and be persistent!

    I, too, will keep an ear out if I know what you're looking for. I am hiring but the pay is so miserable that you DON'T want to work for the company I work for. I am always looking for an out. Not because of job satisfaction (I love my job) but because of pay. But, having said that, I talk to folks of all levels all day so tell me what you're interested in. StAugustine is a beautiful area.
