I was a designer for an engineering company for 11 years, but since it was housing industry related, we completely ran out of work, and I got laid off....

now I'm doing all kinds of different things, including some freelance design work, some freelance writing, and finishing school....

but I really, really need to get a regular job going...I'm not used to being broke, and I don't like it

in a nutshell, they're fermentors that allow the user to control temperature, pH levels, and oxygen levels. They also have addition lines so you can add glucose/salt/methionine/antifoam or whatever. The ones I deal with are used exclusively for bacteria fermentation, but we have other departments that use them for CHO cells. Um, they come in different sizes... I work on the 2L and 20L size.

The new marketing guy at my office is a fuckin tool bag. He doesn't know what the fuck he is talking about. He has been with us six months and has done nothing but spend excessive amounts of money on fuckin ridiculous shit. I am already starting to see right through his bullshit plan. I wish my boss would fuckin recognize. I hope they only signed his sorry ass to a one year contract. He'll probably bankrupt the firm before his year is up.

Stupid things this guy has done.
1. Changed the slogan on our buisness cards and reordered a grip of them.$$$
2. Ordered company t-shirts.$$$
3. Ordered all knds of rediculous material bullshit.$$$
4. Printed all kinds of stupid shit.$$$
5. Had lunch-ins to explain his plan. $$$
6. The amount of internal "buisness development meetings" this guy has had is just a beyond a joke. time=money$$$

So much more shit that I wont even discuss.

I swear six months and no new clients. WTF (((What The Fuck!!!)))

I work for and AD/PR firm, but my job has nothing to do with that. We have a contract with HUD, working with disaster victims (Hurricaines Katrina, Rita, Gustav, and Ike).

I'm more or less and arbitrary middleman between people (victims, landlords, case workers, etc) and their respective PHA or FEMA office.

It's the single most boring job I've ever had. I really miss working for the airlines (especially the travel benefits). But I'm glad I at least have a job with good pay and no chance of being downsized.

LOL, it takes a lot more than that to offend me. Advertising is the shit. We are an online ad network, which means that we have 200+ advertisers, and 400+ websites in our network. Our technology anonymously tracks who you are through cookies, and we are able to figure out 99% accurately through your surfing patterns if you are m/f, age range, and more important, what your behaviors are. So if you are in the market for a Ford Truck, we wont serve you a Ford banner ad on the page when you are researching them, we will serve you the ad when you are looking at sports a couple days later. It's called retargetting, and its 10x's more effective.

Please note, we dont do pop ups/unders, take overs, etc. Just the banner ads you see on sites...most people are shocked to find that they see a different ad on the same page as someone else would looking at the same time at that page, its VERY VERY interesting.

We just hired the old head of the mathematics dept. at MIT as our chief scientist to help us better find patterns in the behavioral data we get streaming back so we can serve our ads even more relevantly.
