Currently, I’m a consultant on a project that should stretch through summer. I’d prefer a nice, cushy staff position, but this is the best I can do for now. In the meantime, I keep my eye out for other opportunities. Towards that end, I receive job-post emails on a fairly regular basis from a number of different sources. Here’s a prospect that I’m considering:
Temporary workers for Gulf Coast
Shamrock Environmental Corporation (Shamrock) has been contracted to provide support personnel to assist with the oil spill clean-up throughout the Gulf Coast. All workers will require OSHA 40 hour Hazardous Waste Operator Training (WE WILL PROVIDE). The hours will vary but expect LOTS of overtime.
RATE OF PAY: $13.00/hour straight time. $19.50/hour overtime (after 40 hours/week)
PER DIEM: $26.00/day for meals
Work may include, but is not limited to, manual labor associated with removing crude oil from impacted beaches, rocks, boom, or any other items that have come in contact with the oil. Work Environment may include working on or near water, in marshland, beach and estuary locations in hot and humid conditions day or night.
Work is available IMMEDIATELY.
Whaddya think? I’m particularly looking forward to working in hot and humid conditions (+ oily w/ Looziana swamp creatures) in the middle of the night.
One of our clients is in need of a proofreader last minute for a catalogue (sic) spot. Must be fluent in Danish.
WTF? I don’t know how to proofread (as regular readers of this blog can attest to) and I sure as hell don’t know nuthin’ about speakin’ no Danish. Why was this sent to me? Next.
