Amanda System Administrator in Brampton
2007-10-01 6:05 AM (Pacific) / 9:05 AM (Eastern)
Permanent Link) Tags: government, brampton

We were originally going to mention this position as part of last Friday's blog post about jobs at the City of Brampton but the more we thought about it, we realized we've rarely seen a job posting for an Amanda System Admins and it really warrants its own post so we can go into more detail.

As well, we take that to mean that if you're a person with these skills, this posting might be that needle in the haystack you've been looking for. You're welcomed. :)

If you are an Amanda Database Tracking System Administrator (say that five times fast), this job posting might be perfect for you.

They mention that experience with the Amanda System software is an asset so if you're an experienced Systems Administrator but don't necessarily have a specialty in this particular software, it might be worth a look as well.

Top Five Job Search Tips
2007-09-26 6:46 AM (Pacific) / 9:46 AM (Eastern)
Permanent Link) Tags: job search tips, general

Today we're doing something different. Instead of telling you about a company that's hiring, we're giving you our 5 best job tips.

Tip #1

Always have your resume up to date. If you're browsing online or the want ads or you run into someone who tells you about the perfect job opportunity, you need to be prepared. Having your resume up to date will help you apply for a job faster and might help you avoid missing an important application deadline. If you don't have an updated resume, now's the tip to work on it.

Tip #2

Network. If you are looking for a job, tell people about it. Nearly every social gathering is an opportunity. Tell people what you are looking for.

Tip #3

Know what you want. This will cut down considerably on the time you spend looking for a job. When you meet people, you'll be able to specify what you're looking for. Knowing what you want, the salary range you would like, and the locations that you are open to are critical to helping you find a job.

Tip #4

Be professional. When you are speaking to someone about looking for a job, you need to be thinking that this person could be in a position to hire you. That means being able to present yourself in a well-spoken manner and being confident. I was recently speaking to someone at a wedding, who was looking for a job. This person was confident and projected herself well. I have no doubt she will find something soon, especially with her networking skills. And finally...

Tip #5

Do it. No one wants to hear you whining about how much you hate your job. If you aren't happy at your job, if you aren't at all passionate about what you're doing, it shows. You are only doing a disservice to yourself and to your present company by doing a job you don't like. Get your ducks in a row; work on your resume, fix your attitude, find out what you want, and get out there. Only you have to power to change your life.
