Hi all, <staffslug(a)staffslug.org.uk>
[I've cross-posted this to a few regional F/OSS lists, which means an
automatic apology from me]
I know times are tight right now, but I hope somebody out there is in a
fortunate enough position to help me. Succinctly, I'm seeking some part-time
work: LAMP web programming ideally, but I'm able enough to turn my hand to
most tech things if necessary.
Why am I looking for work? I'm a mature student (is 30 mature? Gawd, I hope
not), in my final year at Staffordshire University, studying for a degree in
Applied Information Technology. I've just finished at my full-time job,
decided to stop studying part-time for a few hours here and there (and
therefore stop dragging out my graduation date by years) and to simply get
my degree finished as soon as possible by studying at full pelt. (People
generally at this point say things like "Oooh, well done!" or "How
Thing is, I've still got a mortgage & bills to pay and, more importantly, I
fear losing what skills I've learnt if I'm not applying them practically
during this time. You can see my problem.
So I'm here, essentially writing a begging letter to all you nice strangers
out there, hoping one of you has some scraps of work that you're willing to
throw my way. I'm looking for about 15 hours worth of work a week, ideally
as an employed individual, but if I really have to I'll submit to
contracting (dealing with self-employment is just a bother while studying).
You can check out my CV here:
It's pretty chocka and
you can trace my progression from web designer through to baby systems admin
/ web programmer.
I'm clean, intelligent, but unfortunately, ginger. Rejection of me on that
last point is perfectly understandable.
