The Bulletin Rules:
It's a totally free service and all industries are welcome. 
 
The rules are simple: just send me your networking events, job openings, resume, and/or email address to be added to the bulletin. If you send a resume please include a short paragraph describing what type of job you are looking for. I only send out your resume or job opening once, since most of the time I don’t find out if the job got filled or you took a job.  I’m happy to send it out as many times as you’d like, just send me an email to resend it with the next bulletin. Probably the most important rule:  If you send in a resume for someone else please make sure they realize it’s going to be sent out to thousands of people.  I’ve had a few people thru the years get called into their current boss’s office asking why they are looking for another job…not pretty.  As always please forgive my bad grammar, worse spelling, and poor attempts at humor.  A huge thank you to everyone for supporting this little effort.  We’ve helped a lot of folks get jobs thru the years.  Keep spreading the word and sending in the stuff to post.  As always if you’re tired of seeing my name in your inbox (which I wouldn’t blame you) just click on the link below and your email address will be removed.  That’s it…. see that wasn’t too painful.
