In almost twenty years of surveying I never thought that I would have too much trouble in finding employment. The past year has proven me drastically wrong. I'm not licensed, (yet...I'm waiting on the results of my exam with fingers crossed), but I've got quite a bit of experience - both field and office. I know that things are slow right now, but what better time to hire a guy with a business management degree with a focus on new business development? After several months without even getting an interview in my area, I expanded my search to include the entire state of Florida. After several negative months of that, I expanded my search to the entire country. I now have two interviews scheduled - one in Louisiana and the other in California. Am I the only person who thinks that is bizarre? Am I looking in the wrong places? I'm not sure that this board is the place for me to initiate this kind of discussion, but any advice or insight would be greatly appreciated. I’m sure that most of you have been on either side of the interview desk at one time or another – so what am I missing?
