A peaceful and joyous holiday to you all

Jane is fierce
I've been able to read LJ but haven't been posting. The sort version is that after "close but no banana" on a couple of excellent jobs in November, I got visited by the Good Temp Job Fairy in early December. Job is in San Jose, so the commute combined with the run up to Big December Events has been taking it out of me. (Family Christmas has been mellow in comparision with Church Pre-Christmas Blowouts.)

It is short term but the boss likes me enough that I feel I have Prospects. And the market seems to be ticking up, Deo gratias.

I know a lot of you are going through rough times, doubly rough because you are in bad straits right now and/or have Utterly Fucked Up Family of Origin issues. Know that, even if I am not very communicado, that you are all in my heart. I feel blessed to know all of you and wish all of you a healthy, peaceful, prosperous, and joyous New Year.

xxxooo

what do you do? i get the feeling i have asked this before, but i am so scatterbrained lately. it seems like the workload for xmas doubles every year. however i hear of a lot of tech related openings in the bay so i can keep an ear open if you are in that field.

I'm a Windows/Exchange administrator. I've got experience in mid-size enterprise environments (2000-8000 users) and with a lot of the stuff that comes on a windows server. I have a slightly expired security cert and am good at documentation, etc.

Some desktop, Level 1 network, no coding beyond writing administrative scripts.

Yea for temp jobs.

That's how my brother finally found a job after a year. And kept himself above water during all that time. :)

There really is a Job Fairy.
I know it sounds silly, but they're at jobfairy.com. And it's oriented around you IT folks, although anyone can use it, really. I've found it helpful, so I thought I'd pass it on.
