What kind of work are you looking for, Tony?

And do you have an interest in the Nashville area, or were you pretty much set on the upper East Tennessee area?

Norfolk Southern has seen fit to fly me down to Atlanta from WA state twice now for interviews for an Operations manager job, that's mainly what I'm looking for.

I'm looking for management, logistics, transportation, warehouse, admin, supply, professional or instructor positions.

I've managed 35 personnel, operated cranes, winches, ships, boats, trucks, forklifts, tools (power/hand), I've ran maintenance departments, managed departmental budgets, ran supply departments, scheduled, supervised and evaluated personnel, I've been an EMT, CNA, etc.

I've had a varied career, I'd like to make in the 40k - 50k range, but would start in the low to mid 30k range to get a foot in the door.

I'm extending my visit here until friday to try and secure a few more interviews. Let me know if you have any ideas.

Thanks

Tony

I'm open to anywhere, but I've never been to Nashville.......isn't Nashville very crowded? I hear there are nearly 6 million people there.

But if you have a hot lead on someone that is hiring that I can send my resume to and try to set up an interview, I'm all ears.

6 million people in Nashville???

The city's population is just over 600,000 with another 900,000 or so in the suburbs. It's a lot more crowded than Knoxville or the Tri Cities, but it's nothing like Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, DC, South Florida (gag), or NYC.

I don't think there's six million people in Tennessee yet. Although, if Floridians keep moving up here . . .

;-)

I was thinking 5 and half million (vice 1 and half) and rounded to 6 (bad memory), I guess it's actually 1.5 million in the Nashville Metro area, this website shows a little over 1.2 million in the year 2000.

Still 1.5 million is alot of people, I suppose that should mean alot of jobs as well??

The West coast has been "the place" for people to move to for 50 years or so, now that it's so crowded and expensive, people are now "finding" places like NC/SC/TN. NC has the national reputation as a place to move, once people find out about how expensive NC has become, they discover TN. I grew up in NC, but I can't afford to live there anymore with taxes and housing costs.

The 1.5 million figure is for the Metro Statistical Area, which includes Nashville and surrounding counties.

There is a lot of logistics and distribution type of work here due to the fact that Nashville is centrally located for the eastern half of the US.

But, I'm not trying to talk you into Nashville, but there would certainly be more job opportunities here than in Johnson City.

If you go to a temp agenecy with a resume they will put you to work ASAP
It might not be the dream job you intended on finding but its a start and income coming in.
I dont buy into the "good ol boy " theory as a reason that transplants cant find the jobs they want... if a company sees that you're qualified and need someone too fill a position they'll hire you if you impress them enough at the interview.
