I am looking to relocate to North/Central Florida soon and am looking for suitable jobs to interview for when I am there early December.
My greatest asset has always been outstanding troubleshooting and problem-solving skills, which is why I did well at past jobs in electronics, automotive, and maintenance.
On the other hand, I have the limitation of not being suited to repetitious production work, and I don't want to work at a computer all day long, either.
While I am very sharp and skilled in electronics, maintenance, metalworking and automotive work, I also have a B.A. Degree in Economics plus licenses to sell life and health insurance. Therefore, I am open to many possible scenarios.
Past experience with Craigslist resumes has resulted in too many spam text messages and phone calls when including my cell number here. The best is to reply through this site and then go from there...
P.S. As I am alone and have pets, I cannot consider any job with overnight travel; I am NOT interested in any "work at home" or online jobs, as I would need a brick-and-mortar job to relocate to.
My lifelong hobby of electronics was also a source of income both during college and after college, when I was unable to find work in my college field. I have principally worked in the following three areas:
1. Amusement Games: I spent about four years troubleshooting and repairing electronic amusement games--such as video games, electronic darts and pinball--and was one of very few technicians who could also understand and service older relay-type games.
2. Night Club Sound & Lighting / Professional Audio: I spent several years designing, installing and maintaining sound & lighting systems for several night clubs. Additionally, I repaired audio mixing boards, power amplifiers, lighting controllers, and related electronic equipment; and rebuilt motorized lighting fixtures. I am also one of the rare technicians who is very proficient with vacuum tube circuits.
3. Industrial Electronics: I did some troubleshooting and repair of motor drives and other electronics control devices.
Building Maintenance & related:
Also primarily related to night clubs, I have a wide range of experience doing general building maintenance, with emphasis on doing electrical upgrades. I am familiar with 3-Phase systems, the National Electrical Code, and can bend and install conduit and fittings. Additionally, I have done the usual light carpentry, drywall, painting, hvac and plumbing repairs; and I also have a very good background in landscaping.
Automotive & Metalworking:
In High School I was top student in metal shop classes, so naturally decided to begin working in that field. I briefly worked as a machinist and welder, before settling into the auto body repair field. I have experience in all areas, from metal straightening to painting, with a continued interest in trim work and custom painting. I am also skilled in automotive mechanical work; in the use of most machine tools and welding processes; and have background in other areas ranging from metal finishing to refrigeration.
While the majority of my work experience is in the Blue-Collar arena, much of this work was done on a freelance basis, so I often had administrative duties--such as planning, scheduling, estimating, ordering parts, and dealing with customers. Right after college I did work as a bookkeeper for a local auto body shop. I also started a graphics design & printing venture, catering to the Amateur Radio niche market. I have always been entrepreneurial-minded, and one who likes to see projects from start to finish.
