    so I've been looking for work lately, my current job is going away because the company is going under.

    so if anyone has a lead on a tech job I would appreciate it.


    I am A+ certified , I do PC help desk, server/user administration, web design, programming, etc... most anything to do with a PC and keeping an office running.
    around the long beach, OC area would be nice.

    thanx for looking.

    oh and If I make more $$ I get to do more mods!! lol

    ***bumped (AGAIN) 8/2/12 *because im looking again ***

    thats funny, a buddy of mine started at san jose state majoring in IT .... some drama happened so he had to leave there, moved up to humboldt state, graduated, and moved to portland .... he now works for webtrendz and is pretty happy with them and portland in general

    anyhow ive been unemployed since october 2010 ... bad economy and time to be a parks and natural resource management guy. I want to move to arizona so bad its not even funny but theres nothing there either (cept for my beautiful future ex wife)

    What kind of experience do you have as far as IT support? I know s company thats slways hiring but its mostly entry level stuff like desktop support,more hands on tech work not really much on the help desk side,and requires some driving around

    bumped again.

    Was working at a place for the last year, it was a mess and a lot of old junk.

    I fix their PC's , get them almost automated and then they think they don't need me.:(

    If anyone knows of a tech job, let me know

    I'll be working on more certs in the meantime.

    Thanks for looking
