    Sorry to hear that.

    Your post did give me an idea though.....

    Seeing as how I can help people with 401k/IRA rollovers, possibly like yourself, maybe we could set up a buckeye helping buckeye section on here. We could then go to this section if we have a need for something that maybe one of our own members could help out with.

    The vets club at my old school has something similar to this idea....works pretty well.


    just a thought.....

    good luck with that job search!

    LloydSev,

    Where did you go to college? You may want to check with their Career Services office as some of them will let you use their resources for a small fee (i.e. $20-$30). It is becoming more and more common for Career Service offices to have great contacts with companies and extensive job boards.

    His profile says he was in the collections business.... I like the buckeye helping buckeye idea, don't know how we could implement it though...

    Sorry to hear about the bad news...

    Lloyd- If your familiar with collections and you have good customer service skills, then you might want to check out MBNA's Customer Assistance (Collections) department at their Beachwood site. I broke in with them (in Delaware) back in the 90s, and my wife still works for them (different department though.)

    I just looked at their job site and it looks like their only full-time jobs (in Cleveland) right now are for customer service reps. They offer a fair salary, monthly bonuses, and you should be able to progress a pretty decent pace. They also offer great benefits.

    At the very least, you could have a solid job (with great benefits) with them while you look for other work. Let me know if you have any questions about the company. From Canton, you would probably have a decent commute, but it's a great company.

    And this time stay off the Planet during working hours - that's what cost you your last job.

    Llyod,

    Check out Sterling Jewlers in Fairlawn (Akron)... I worked there for a bit when I was back in Ohio, not a bad place, and I still know a few people there...

    PM me if you have any questions.

    If you can hold out for a few weeks, there may be an opening at ESPN for a crack reporter on the college football scene. Maybe two.

    I'll keep a close eye on the internal postings with Taxation. If anything comes up in Stark County, I'll send it to you.
