Jobs -- Thurs., Apr. 11

As in looking for work. 2012 was a bad year financially for us. Bob found a good job in San Antonio and we are here for a little while. Unfortunately, his hours got cut in half. He is now looking for consulting work to supplement our income. He would like to consult as a controller/CPA. He has extensive background in roofing/construction accounting, estimating and project management.

I, too, have my application at temporary agencies looking for administrative assistant, transcriptionist or customer service temporary work. Ever since my fall, I planned to go to work. The timing was to go after I healed and the dental work was done. When Mom and Jan came to visit, I wanted to have the week off to sightsee with them, so April 1 became my date of looking for a job in earnest.

If you are in the San Antonio area and know anyone who needs a temporary admin assistant to help as fill in for an employee taking time off for childbirth, illness, vacation, etc., please let me know. I have over 20 years experience

Welcome to new follower Wendy B., she was a co-worker of ours at a roofing company in Hawaii. Hi, Wenz!! Howzit?


  1. I've snagged a few jobs through, which has all sorts of telecommuting/virtual assistant gigs. There's also and some others out there for freelancers. Good luck with the job hunt!

  2. All the best in finding a job. I lost my part-time position in 2010, but we are managing without my income. My husband retires next year. But it's tough for a lot of folks all over. You are not alone!

  3. It is so tough out there now. I wish you both success in the job hunting.

  4. It's nice you're able to work a little bit when you need to. Good luck with the job search.

  5. Have you tried Craigslist? We start a six month gig as independent contacts for a roadshow at Costco, we found on there.

  6. Good luck with the job hunt. I know that can be frustrating but hopefully, an opportunity will present itself.

  7. Aloha Susan & Bob!!!
    I admire your Adventures and History sharing!!! I get your blog emailed to me everyday and I read it on my breaks at work... this Island of Oahu is so small compared to the HUGE USA!!! Blessings on your job search and Enjoy your weekend!!!
