NASA Announces Space Shuttle Replacement Shortlist

August 4, 2012 Leave a comment

Jonathan Amos, Science Correspondent for BBC News, reports that NASA has selected three companies that will help in developing launch systems that will take us to the Space Station. This is good news for the thousands of space workers still struggling two years after the last shuttle launch.  Since the Space Shuttle was retired in 2010, American Astronauts have had to hitch rides on Russia’s Soyuz rockets at $60 million a ticket. And I thought $600 to get to Amarillo was expensive!

The companies include the SpaceX firm, aerospace giant Boeing, and the Sierra Nevada Corporation.

Space Exploration Technologies Corporation, or SpaceX, headquartered in Hawthorne, California, is a space transport company founded by former PayPal entrepreneur Elon Musk.

The Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) is considered the Top Woman Owned Federal Contractor in the United States. SNC’s center of operations is in Sparks, Nevada.

The Boeing Company of Houston, Texas, has provided space technology for NASA for years.

I was curious as to when, where, and how many people will be hired to support the space shuttle replacement. The really good news is that Boeing is supporting the Space Launch Systems (SLS) Program at the Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Presently, Boeing has seven positions open in New Orleans, LA (posted Aug. 1st & 2nd):

To apply, go to Boeing CareersNew Orleans Jobs. For other openings, go to Boeing Careers.

SpaceX presently has 155 positions open, in a wide variety of categories, in the following locations;

  • Hawthorne, CA
  • McGregor, TX
  • Vandenberg, CA
  • Cape Canaveral, FL

The majority of the positions are located in Hawthorne, CA. Go to SpaceX Careers to view the open positions.

SNC has almost 300 open positions throughout the US:

  • Beavercreek, OH
  • Centennial, CO
  • Clovis, NM
  • Durham, NC
  • Fayetteville, NC
  • Folsom, CA
  • Hagerstown, MD

Thousands of Space Workers Still Struggling

July 18, 2012 2 comments

Resumes, resume, Resume, resumes, Resume writer slidell, resume services Slidell, professional resume writer Slidell, Resume writer New Orleans, resume services new orleans, professional resume writer New Orleans. Associated Press reporter Mike Schneider and foxnews.com reported on the struggle of space workers a year after the last shuttle blast

Space workers struggle a year after last shuttle

This was also the subject of one of my very first blogs;
High joblessness in the home of U.S. space flight.

I am a former Space Shuttle Program employee, as was my husband who is now 800 miles away building helicopters in Amarillo TX.

I did not view the very last launch but was fortunate enough to view the launch of STS-129 on Monday November 16, 2009. It was a stunning, aw-inspiring sight to behold.

HOW TO: Set up an Online Resume

This article by Erica Swallow explains how to post your resume online using personal websites, video hubs, document-sharing websites or LinkedIn.

HOW TO: Set Up an Online Resume

The examples’ used are some of the most creative social media, video and visual resumes examples I have ever seen.  Take a few minutes to view some of the examples; they are really impressive.

But what I really find most informative about the article is the suggestion Erica makes to upload your resume to a document-sharing website such as SlideShare or Scribd. In fact I have already created a profile and posted my resume on SlideShare (41 views already). I’m planning to do the same on Scribd.

If you need help creating your own Online Resume give me a call.

Good Luck

Dating and Your Job Search

I love this article by Hannah Morgan; she compares searching for a job to dating.

How Dating “Rules” Apply to Your Job Search

I always said that not getting a job, especially after a great interview, is like being dumped by a guy.


You felt like you made a real connection,
he was interested in you,
you had so much in common,
you laughed at his jokes,
you stated to picture a future with him.
And, after the evening was over, he said he would call…but he never does.
The worst part is you usually never know why.
What did she have that I didn’t?
You are humiliated; and you feel horrible for weeks.
 
Don’t be that job candidate anymore! 

A powerful, achievement-focused résumé with distinctive, eye-catching design will get you noticed! Let a professional résumé writer help you turn heads and stand out from the crowd.

BTW; I mean no disrespect to all the guys out there. I only use the term “guy” because
I am a girl. I know the knife cuts both ways.

Good Luck

Class of 2012

Now for the bad news…it sucks out there in the real word:(

Here is an article, by Steven Greenhouse of the New York Times, about employers that are taking advantage of new graduates with unpaid internships.

Jobs Few, Grads Flock to Unpaid Internships

Many companies are taking advantage of the weak labor market. The unemployment rate for 20- to 24-year-olds was 13.2 percent in April (Greenhouse, 2012).

 
For your best chance of landing a “Paid Job,” call a Professional Resume Writer.
 
 Good Luck!
