    Employment Opportunities Not Yet Advertised

    Locked

    by bfilmfan ·

    As some of you know, I am a technical director with a federal contractor in southeast Arizona, as well as, having been a peer here for many years. And I am aware of the state of the current IT market making it difficult to find well paying, full time jobs with benefits and growth opportunities.

    My employer is currently seeking candidates to fill open positions on a federal contract in southeast Arizona. Note while this is a contract with the government, the positions are full time with the company.

    Requirements are you must be a United States Citizen and must be able to hold a minimum of a Secret Security Clearance. If you do not have a clearance, the company can obtain one for you provided you meet requirements (this is known as an interim clearance).

    The positions open require all mannner of skill sets from Help Desk positions, to WAN engineers, to Application Analysts (Exchange 2003, Oracle, SQL, etc) to Active Directory engineers depending on the position.

    If anyone is interested in an opportunity with one of the best companies I’ve worked with in the last 10 years, you can send me a private message and I will send you the contact information on forwarding me your resume.

    An additional benefit is that you’d get to work with a TR peer!

      houses are so expensive out here in CA.
      I’ve got a good job currently but friend moved to phoenix area, and I don’t have secret clearance.

      Hey, if I did, would I get to play with area-51 type stuff like mysterious alien artifacts, maybe try out a deathglider, or staff weapon?

          Though I still retain my Canadian “Secret” status, I know that since 9/11, for better or worse it takes a long time to get US clearance, so I am out too….
