Default Job hunt - Need advice!!

Hi all,

Need advice from all Austin forum members on how to start job hunting for my wife - we moved to Austin over a year back from NJ/NY, and we absolutely love it...my wife used to work for GE Modular Space (Pennsylvania) as a Quality Improvement/Process Improvement Supervisor (specifically in the Licensing area) - she is Six Sigma Green Belt certified when we had our son she decided to quit working in 2005 to give complete attention to him - so for the past 4 years she has been a awesome housewife, mother - she wants to start working - she knows she probably has to start from scratch all over again and wants to give it a go (even maybe start as a temporary or contract worker). Any help/ advice on how to go about her job search will be greatly appreciated...

Regards,

Max

There is usually a good demand for trained Six Sigma Lean people in the tech sector. Unfortunately, most of the tech companies in Austin are tied to the global economy and are experiencing a downturn right now. Temp agencies would be a great place to start. There are a ton of them in Austin. Here's a few names I'm familliar with that might have listings in that field:

Adecco, Areotek, Manpower Professional, Robert Half Technology, Spherion, Kelly

Hotjobs.com, Monster.com, and craigslist are always good places to look as well.

No sorry, I used to have contacts, but that was several years ago. I'd start by searching their websites, otherwise, it will probably take a few phone calls to get the right recruiter.
