Anyone near / in SE MI good at or willing to learn VBA (or willing to move if your situation is up for it)? Really could use some motivated people. Pay is D.O.E but probably wouldn't be less than $20-$25/hr and could get as high as $40-$45/hr... if you really rock I might be able to push for more, but you really gotta know your stuff by the books to go north of that.

Optional benefits and it varies based on how you work your deal, you basically start off as a contractor but it is W2. If you do well enough, you can get solid benefits as a direct hire. To give you an idea, even though I was a contractor when I started, I still got 27 days off / yr, 401k (albeit crappy one), medical & dental which was an HDHP.

Ping me if interested.

Thanks.

EDIT:

Just received confirmation that right now we can only take in those that already know VBA very well. When we have capacity for a learner position I will update this post. You can always try pinging me if I haven't updated this in a long time.

I possess CCNA + CompTIA Certs and a 2 year technical college degree.

I have decent relevant experience that shows I have work ethic and dedication. Security+ and Network+ knowledge were most certainly utilized to a certain extent. CCNA, not really.

I'm in the Baltimore Metro area. Feel free to contact me if salary is $35,000+.

I'm willing to commute to Annapolis, Wilmington DE, DC, & York PA.

Been studying Oracle MySQL.

Is this some kind of age discrimination thing?
The perception is that people who didn't recently graduate are either not looking for an entry level position, or if they are they are 'damaged goods' and have been passed over by others for a good reason.

Guess I should post in here. I'm graduating with a BS in Electrical Engineering in December and looking for an entry level job. I've got experience plus a bunch of personal projects. I've done basically everything there is to do, from RF circuit design to programming in all sorts of languages.

I'm currently in Colorado Springs but wiling to relocate anywhere.

PM me for more info or let me know if you know of a place that's hiring.

I was looking through these replies, and I was curious to know what certifications are the most in demand currently.

I have my CompTIA A+, MCP, MCDBA, MCSA, and MCSE. I obtained these certifications back in the Windows 2000 track. I'm currently looking into recertification. The process seems to be a bit more specialized now.

I'm looking for feedback regarding which certifications are the most highly desired, and if there's a particular combination of certifications that are the most in demand for the highest salary.

I ran my own business for many years, and used a company to get me what I needed for bigger projects when it came to temporary employees (contract work). I did most of the work myself typically. More profit that way obviously. ;)

Now I have a family and dealing with the clientele in West Palm Beach is horrifying. People don't want to pay their bills, and they will do the most outrageous things in attempts to avoid paying them. You wouldn't imagine half of the stories I could tell you.

I'm shutting it down, and I'm going to start looking for a 9-5 type position. I'm uncertain of which direction I want to go. I haven't had to consider job interviews for a decade. Now I'm faced with it, and I realize I allowed my certifications to lapse. I was thinking CCNA Security would be a good one. I'm debating whether to recertify with my Microsoft certifications. It's a huge jump from Windows 2000 to Windows Server 2012. I'm familiar with most (if not all) of the relevant software. I just need to go over some of the information to make sure my confidence is warranted.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

I'm looking for an IT professional to work full-time at an office in the Dallas area. The office has approximately 15 people and a mixture of Windows 7 and Windows 10 desktops as well as Surface Pro 3s and Surfacebooks. The server is SBS 2011 and it is badly in need of some TLC.

This is a long term position that has other opportunities to advance and grow especially if you have any interest in structural or civil engineering. You don't have to be a structural or civil engineer to do some of that type of work as some of our best people aren't engineers. Your main focus would be IT and it's the only expectation anyone would have of your daily tasks. I'm mentioning the other work simply as a way to make sure you know there's other types of work available should you want a change or become bored.

Please let me know if you're interested and we can chat on the phone. You can start now!
