Free Oracle Developer/dba

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.

wow man, it's so bad around your neck of the woods eh ? maybe you should move.

Strictly Oracle dev job - unless you the market is slow but I can't imagine you can not find a DBA job.
