    It seems a little strange to post a job opening on here but I really need to hire an office assistant and figured it can't hurt to ask. I'm looking for a part time office assistant in the Phoenix area (center of town to west valley would be best). Good people skills is pretty much the only major requirement although some computer skills are obviously needed. Hours are flexible. May even be able to work from home most of the time.

    Please also consider if you might know of any non Real Jock peeps who may be interested. I'd be very happy with any type of person (not looking exclusively for a gay guy - need to be clear due to the nature of this site) so long as they are friendly and competent.

    I'd be interested. Can you send me any more info? Never thought I'd see a job offer, in my own city, on a gay site, haha.

    What a great idea Wander! Thanks! icon_biggrin.gif
    Why not post jobs here? Either somebody who needs a job, or in your case, offering one.
    Lets all do this. We can help the economy and give the homophobes a reason to not say anything bad about us.

    My partner of 14yrs. is an Environmental Facilities Services Manager, He does electric, plumbing, finish carpentry, tiling (and designing) and much more. He has had 9yrs experience. In Orlando, FL where he ran a 65 bed facility, for psychically and mentally delayed adults. We have moved to Augusta, ME. He made great money in FL and is searching for the same here. He takes pride in his work. I am beginning to think that moving to Maine was a huge mistake.

    Anyone out there know of a job such as this in Augusta, ME or surrounding area? He is more than great at what he does. It feels so desolate up here.

    Thanks,
    Michael

    There have been a couple of times when I've reached out to various Web designers on this site, asking for assistance. In both cases, my company asked me to track down a freelancer to work on specific projects. They weren't complex jobs at all, but simple enhancements to my firm's existing Web site. One was paying $15K, the latest was $20K. While they were initially interested, both guys ended up flaking out on me. I didn't immediately disclose the amounts they would be getting paid, which isn't unusual (neither asked or seemed to care about the money - a real sign that I was wasting my time). In terms of integrity, neither seemed to have any. Who knows. Maybe they weren't Web designers at all?

    Anyway, I ended up using a local agency that delivered garbage, but at least they delievered.

    I'm not completely discouraged. I am working with one RJer on a potential long-term project, and hope I'm able to end up using him for this work, but he's a diamond in the rough. You shouldn't count on guys on this site for anything. Be sure to shop around outside of this site, too!

    Might have something to do with the fact that everybody calls themselves a web designer these days. There's a rather large difference between thinking you have an eye for aesthetics and fooling around with dreamweaver, and actually getting the functional requirements right before you overlay some pretty skin.

    Or, maybe gay people are just flakey.

    No, it's not strange to post a job here. I did so last week. :-) Of course I did attract nasty comments from the usual crowd. On the other hand I did have 4 responses and three of those are to be interviewed early next week.
