There is a serious lack of work in the Tampa market and desperate times call for desperate measures.
Now, I've always wanted to do this, but was never in a position to do so financially...I'm still not, but something is way better than nothing.
I'm going to offer my services for free.
Not forever mind you, somewhere between 2 and 4 weeks. It is negotiable.
If it works out, i.e. you like what I can bring to your organization, I prove that I pick new systems up quickly and I fit in well with your team; and I like working in your organization, then you pay me for that time worked and I sign up full-time either as a permanent employee or some sort of contract.
If it doesn't work out, we part ways and no one is worse for wear. You get free work from me and I get to experience a new environment (i.e. meet new people, expand my network, etc).
You can view my resume here (permanent link up top coming soon).
Some basic highlights:
PL/SQL: Expert (I don't like that term)
DBA: Junior to Mid-level (or DBA in lowercase, "dba")
APEX: Worked with up to version 3.2, admittedly rusty, but passionate about the product.
Design: Love modeling data. Model just about everything in my head (in normal life). Use Visio extensively for visual representations. Experience with SQL Developer Data Modeler, ERwin, etc.
Documentation: Give me a wiki or something similar and I'll document just about everything that I do.
That's it. Contact info is on my resume or up top on the "email" icon.
It's now posted on craigslist as well.
