$5 million, 100 jobs on the way at Cape Canaveral

As reported by FLORIDA TODAY staff writer Wayne T. Price and in the accompanying video by Tim Shortt Florida’s Gov. Rick Scott announced submarine missile test system for Cape Canaveral: Navy Strategic System Program at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station will refurbish, and update a submarine missile test complex built in the 1950s.

The historical station was used for manned and unmanned launches until part way through the Apollo Program

A $5 million state contribution will help create 100 federal jobs and, more importantly, secure a key component of Brevard County’s military economy for decades to come.

Approximately 85 percent of the work force will be civilian contractors, including former space shuttle workers. The facility now employs about 800 people: military, federal, and contractors.

After the end of the space shuttle program Florida had the biggest drop in unemployment of any state. See my past posts on the subject:

Space workers struggle a year after last shuttle

High joblessness in the home of U.S. space flight

Price also reports that the Cape Canaveral division of Lockheed Martin Space Systems will be responsible for SWS Ashore facility design and construction, along with infrastructure support.

NASA Announces Space Shuttle Replacement Shortlist

August 4, 2012 Leave a comment

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.

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:

September is Update Your Resume Month

August 1, 2012 Leave a comment

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.

Why dedicate a month updating resumes?

brought to you EXCLUSIVELY by CDI

 

Let’s let Career Directors International (CDI) President, Laura DeCarlo, explain:

 “So often people are caught unaware by a surprise job opportunity, layoff, or a pressing life change that requires them to immediately seek work. When job seekers need their resume yesterday it can frequently lead to unnecessary stress and development of an ineffective resume that fails to showcase the breadth of the job seeker’s talents, experience, and accomplishments. By declaring September as the official update month, people will have the opportunity to better control and champion their own futures on their own terms.”

CDI members have numerous resources to assist job seekers. Job seekers can access these resources, free of charge, in the CDI Job Seeker Center.

I will feature some of these resources throughout the month. The first is the Career Profile Update form. I urge everyone to complete this form and update it several times a year.

Job seekers  can count on the expert qualifications of a CDI member when looking for assistance with their resumes.

Good Luck

Thousands of Space Workers Still Struggling

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.
