I've completed my service commitment with the Air Force and am moving to Cody in mid-August. My wife grew up there and her family is still in town. Her dad is a realtor, so finding a house is no problem.

What I do need to find is a job. I'm looking on Wyomingatwork.com and other places, but if anyone has an inside scoop on some work for an ex-military guy, I would sure appreciate it. I'm interested in something with human resources or perhaps a counseling-type position, such as a parole officer or social worker.

I'm an experienced supervisor, manager, educator (formal classroom and one-on-one mentoring), and counselor. I have designed/managed up to $4 million while supervising other controllers for other organizations and their budgets. I'm experienced with computers and very comfortable learning new software/systems. I learn very quickly, am self-motivated, and enjoy a challenge. I have a Bachelor's along with 21 years of experience.

This is an odd place to ask for something like this, but one never knows...

Try A&I State Jobs for state jobs. They often. have p&p or counseling type positions.

Yes - I know there s a P&P job open in the county - need to go thru the state. Also if you are interested in law enforcement check with the city of Cody or Powell & also the sheriff, Scott Steward. I can't think of our Chief of Police name...feel stupid - have known him for 10 yr or so...but you have to find the job postings for the city in the Cody Enterprise or in City Hall - they don't post them. Here is the Sheriff's page... Wyoming Park County Sheriff Office (http://www.parkcounty.us/sheriff.htm - broken link) - You can contact Scott from there (his bro & us are best friends - he works for DCI after 15 yr or so on the street here). I would not be surprised at all if there are street officer positions available. We are always short. And having military background is sort of a shoe-in here. They start you at the jail & send you to the academy for 3 or 4 monthss down in Douglas but can come home on wknds if you want. You keep your own car here - sheriff or police. They share a law enforcement center at the edge of town, right on the river - BRAND new facility opened about a year or 2 with state of art jail security. Good luck!! Check jobs in the paper on </title> <meta name="Generator" content="Cocoa HTML Writer"> <meta name="CocoaVersion" content="824.44"> <style type="text/css"> p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; text-align: center; fon in classifieds. Good luck!!! Many of the more desirable jobs are filled quick enuff they don't make it to the various job sites in Wyo.

Thanks for the information so far! I already looked at the P&P position in Powell. The only problem with it is the hours are very irregular (early mornings, nights, weekends) which is exactly what my military life has been for 21 years. I wouldn't mind set hours that went into the evening, or workdays that included the weekend, but I'm not in the mood for a job that eats into every hour of my day.

I'm not suited for the Police department either. I'm in a tough, physical job right now that deals with bad guys, but we shoot them! Again, my interest is with long-term mentoring/assistance where I can really make a difference in someone's life. Hauling someone to the jail or dealing with a domestic for an hour doesn't suit my strengths or desires.

I'm not just a military guy that carries a gun or knows how to shout orders. I've got a lot of experience with teaching, mentoring, and managing resources (personnel, budgets, inventory, etc). As I'm nearing retirement, people are approaching me in private and thanking me for the time I've spent in helping them grow as individuals. This not only supports my belief that it's a strength, but it also showed me how rewarding this could be. So I'd like to stay in a position that allows me to continue in this vein.

Thanks again for the great feedback!

Any P&P job in Wyo is gonig to be all odd hours. I have a couple of friends in it & there is a lot of time in court, checking on "clients" all times of day & night 7 days a week if there is a report of probs, unplanned "visits", etc. etc. Might think about going to school to get a masters in social work or something - Wyo is REALLY short on mental health - they are badly overworked here...and SERIOUS need...

I'm 22 years Navy and found out an old friend is working the medical sectoion in the Park County Jail - NOT an inmate - His name is "Herc" Albrecht. I went through Independent Duty School with him. If you would be so kind as to relay my e-mail adress to him. [EMAIL="DocCapaul@aol.com"]DocCapaul@aol.com[/EMAIL]
Thank you very much! I haven't seen him since 1983, he may not remember me. Just tell him, "Class of Horst", that might ring a bell. Again Thank you in advance.

Look into the community College in Powell, you would likely be a good educator and possibly could add a little something (Or a lot) to a community ed and business education program for local companies and start-ups. Check into SBDC if there is one in the area. Bone up on finance skills, that is gonna be a hot career field for awhile. (for the legitimate (honest) thinkers...) Many folks (& businesses) need to 're-adjust' their financial plans and align future needs (this is not a short term recession). I think a high need in the near future will be affordable housing for seniors. (Not subsidized, but 'realistic' alternatives to senior living centers that have become like cruise ships / resorts. Just the basics, and nice and small. I don't think there are any senior housing co-ops in WYO (seniors own their own senior housing complex). I think they are a GOOD IDEA. Your RE F-I-L in Cody should be able to help fix you up.
