    Hi
    Just wondering if this company would like to have a pro-active graduate with high analytical skills to come and support its Sydney team.
    I have a 457 de facto and can start immediately.

        October 21, 2012 at 9:39 amI’m a horticulturist with 10 years of eenerixpce working on all type of properties ranging from small homes to 1st class museum collections. I want to share my expertise by working with property owners to help upgrade and maintain their landscapes. I currently write a newsletter that covers seasonal maintenance tasks, pest and disease issues, and design ideas.I’d like to be doing evaluations of existing landscapes, quality checks on new installations (you’d be surprised at how many things can go wrong!), and teach gardening classes.I don’t want to be acting as a contractor, rather be working as a referer or liaison between my clients and landscapers. I want to be a client’s advocate, not a servicemagic.com paid referal service where landscapers pay for leads or give kickbacks.I’m open to all any suggestions.Thanks in advance.A Northeast Gardener

      October 21, 2012 at 12:12 pmI am at the end of my rope!I am 40 years old, married with 2 teen aged girls and jolebss. I previously lived in Florida where I had a design/consulting business and my wife had a Florist shop. We were very happy and doing very well, until early 2007, when we closed the doors on the Florist shop and my business was not bringing in enough to support us.We ended up moving to Massachusetes as my family were willing to help us as they did. well I found a decent job as a design manager and worked there for 15 months until I was layed-off from there, I filed for unemployment and my employer lied and stated that I quit voluntarily, I appealed it and had to wait 6 months for my hearing date, in which led us to be evicted.We moved back to Florida (big mistake), where I had to fly back to Mass for the hearing and won. We then spent a year in Florida without finding a job until I was offered a good job back in mass.. We moved back and I started the job and everything seemed good until a month and a half later the owner came to me and called me in his office to inform me that the company just recently lost their line of credit at their bank. I was then layed-off and have been looking for work ever sense to the present. I received my final unemployment check the first week of November and now do not have an income. I have been sending resumes out everyday (I have a mechanical engineering degree) to no evail. I am very depressed, worn out, and feel very alone as my wife and family are sick of listening to my depression. I just cant handle it anymore and dont know where to turn, I am actually sitting here debating whether I should take my life as I do not know what else to do, I feel so helpless. I CANT PROVIDE FOR MY FAMILY and it is killing me inside. I was never a person to consider something like this, but I am lost for answers and nobody to talk to.I have sent resumes and have applies at places I would never have considered just a few years ago, I am either over qualified or not qualified at all. I cant even get a job at Staples or a Jiffy Lube. All of the engineering or designing jobs are looking for very specific experience with software, etc. I have never had such a hard time finding a decent job years ago.I am sorry for the rambling as I am not in a great state of mind right nowBrian
