Yeah, you need military, police experience to do my line of work. Actually they're several contracts that range from supply stuff, to IT, actually a bunch of overseas contract work. I may be able to point you in the right direction if you tell me what your 7 years experience is and if you're willing to go overseas. $$$$ is to be made over there, keep that in mind.

Is there a good place where I could get some information on the job?

I guess we can't count spelling as one of your strengths.

The higher paying jobs that do not require specialized education are either entrepeneurial or sales. Unfortunately, a lot of places require degrees just to get in the door for an interview.

One thing I recommend putting together is a "brag book," if you haven't already, and a documented production history. If you can walk in to an interview with concrete evidence that you are a producer and have the sales skills to back it up, it goes a long way.

A more useful statistic than the standard unemployment rate may be the employment/population ratio.

Quote:
The unemployment rate has bounced around in recent months, falling from 9.8% in November, to 8.8% in March, then back to 9.1% in May. However, the unemployment rate figures have been suspect. The employment-to-population ratio, which is a more reliable measure of resource utilization in the labor market, has been trending roughly flat over the last year, suggesting that job growth has been sufficient only enough to absorb the growth in the working-age population.

Contractionary policies in state and local government have added to the economy’s weakness. State and local government fell by 30,000 in May, down 291,000, over the last 12 months (in comparison, federal government payrolls ex-census workers rose a whopping 16,000). The contraction in state and local government jobs is not expected to come to an end anytime
soon, and may get worse at the end of the school year.
The good news for you guys is that Texas has the strongest economy in the US.

The marcellus shale thing is really blowing up all around here in PA. The work is tough but the pay is pretty good. I think you can take a fairly short school program at many community colleges to get started as a roughneck.

Quit miataturbo.net. Sell all your miatas and parts. Start your own business. Make double your range the first year.

That's what Paul w/o a college education did but he's smarter than the average bear.

Fortunately Im a very good salesman with very good sales references, so that is a zero degree/education job thats hard to find capable people for.
