ANyone looking for a new job?

Dale Smith
 

I know some of our members are looking for a position in routing/switching/network services. Mark Moller at Kelly Services sent me the following and I wanted to pass it on.

Mark has a client, Legrand / Wattstopper, actively looking for a strong field services technician in the Seattle area. The position primarily will be working and troubleshooting at client sites in Seattle with some minimal travel in the Northwest to other clients, but for the most part, mostly remain in the Seattle area. They are looking for a strong field service candidate with strong troubleshooting for routers, HUBS, LAN lines, networking, etc. Ideally, they would also like someone with some programming and electronics background. Any control systems background would be a plus but is not required. The candidate will need to be used to being customer-facing and have experience with that since you will be visiting client sites.

Consider avoiding ics colors to avoid confusion. 

Yellow is probably your safest bet. 

Green, white,  red, or blue should be avoided.

Just to confirm, the link below is one of the vests that Issaquah has available.  It is a heavier material than the mesh, one-size-fits-all vests, which we distribute as part of the CERT course.  The SR-4017A also has two, large pockets on the inside for gloves, and other items.  It also has a shoulder strip to attach your speaker-mic.  Personally, I like the mesh vest for warmer weather (40o+) and the SR-4017A for colder situations (I have both the SR-4017A and the mesh vest) .  Bottom line, I think the extra $5 for the SR-4017A is a good buy.

 

FYI, Issaquah does have a set of vests for ICS, and those would likely be  the SR-402XINSERT vests that PrepareSmart also sells.  The ICS vests are light weight, and more for identification rather than CERT activities.
