M.S. asks from Plano, TX on April 21, 2006
Networking for IT Jobs?
Hi, my hubby just heard that he got downsized. He's working on moving down here to Plano with us, and doesn't have many connections here. Does anyone have suggestions on how to get networking for IT jobs? He has a masters in computer science and does database design, etc., I think in Sequel. You can reply directly to me if you like, ____@____.com

I work for McAfee and have lots of contacts in the business. If he wants to check out mcafee.com and see if anything interests him, I can personally give them his resume. Depending on what he's looking for, I might know of some other places. This is an IT recruiter that I know - your husband can send him his resume and just tell him I referred him - my name is Janina F.. The recruiter is Jody Fish ____@____.com. I know he has contacts at places like EDS and such. Let me know if there's anything else I can do - I know how it is to be job hunting!

I am an independent IT recruiter. No SQL positions right now with me but here are some referrals to a few good firms:
The Insource Group - www.insourcegroup.com

Hi! I'm sure he's overqualified, but in the 'something is better than nothing' vein, I send you this:
I do web editing there, so you can ask me if you have any questions of a nontechnical nature. :-) I should point out this is NONPROFIT job, so pay is, well, what you'd expect at a nonprofit.
Hope this helps!

Is your husband a developer or just database design? I work for a nonprofit, and we often hire contractors in our IT department. I'd need to know more about what he's looking for to know if we have any openings.

Have him look up jobs in monster.com, christianjobs.com etc.. I have seen many jobs there.
He may want to apply with Verizon, SW Bell some of the local phone companies that are always looking for programmers.
Will keep you in praye.
