The only way to work yourself out of the trouble you've worked yourself into is to work your way out of it... #WorkIsNotADisease #WorkIsJOY

If you do good work, share it with a stranger.

A stranger can be the best judge of your work. (Not knowing *YOU*, they can only judge your work for its own quality, its own creativity...)

You know you're working the wrong way if it feels "illegal" for you to take time to take a minute to look at and ENJOY the sky above ... the largest thing in your life...

No, I'm not familiar with this group, but I'll have a look before too long.

 

I thank you,

All the best,

Loretta

Loretta,

Have you seen my Linkedin Group "Federal Government Contracting" at: http://linkd.in/FederalGovernmentContractingGroup

Good Evening,

Late last December, I received a call from a Recruiter who'd found my Resume on Monster. She asked if I'd be interested in learning about a 3-month assignment reading contracts for a corporation in Cary. She scheduled the appointment with the Corporate Counsel and I was hired that day. 

January 10th was my 1st day wherein I was told I was to read files that were contained in 4 file cabinets. As I began reading the files in the first drawer, I conveyed my findings to the Corporate Counsel and her associate Attorney. (Corporate Counsel had been employed at this company 4 years and associate Attorney had been there 2 years.) According to Corporate Counsel, I'd "identified some of the glitches" in their system.  Specifically, contracts were either non-existent or were not fully-executed. There was correspondence in the files which approved the delivery of the products in many cases, sans a contract. In total, I read more than 850 contracts and put specific information from each into an Excel spreadsheet. The ultimate goal was to have a database created by their IT department wherein I would put specific information about each contract. This would allow for information about the contracts to be accessible throughout the enterprise.

Impressed with my work, Corporate Counsel contacted the Recruiter and said she needed me until at least the end of June,  possible longer. Towards the end of the day, I thank her and she said, "no problem, I need your help".

On Wednesday, May 11th, Corporate Counsel called me into her office. According to her, the Finance Dept. said the funds for the project had been depleted and that my last day of employment would be Wednesday, May 18th. 

For reasons unknown to us in the contracts department, the database was never created, although communication remained open between the IT department director and Corporate Counsel. It should be known that those of us in the legal arena are concerned about liability relative to contracts. Relative to the "glitches" I identified, they were inherited by Corporate Counsel and her Associate - who saw the potential of liability to the corporation should there be an incident associated with a product.

 

Thus, I am available as a Contract Administrator in or near Cary, NC.

 

Kind regards,

Loretta Faheem, MS

I've been laid off since 2003 when Intel Corporation decided to start sending jobs overseas. I knew back then that tough times were coming. And, unfortunately I have seen my friends lose jobs at Intel due to more jobs going to China, Vietnam, Costa Rica, and other faraway lands. Sending jobs out of America is not good for Americans. It may be good for other nations, but the downside is what we are seeing now. Low employment, high unemployment.

I have tried many many online marketing businesses. So many that I lost thousands of dollars and made other people rich. Does that sound like you?

I'm very happy now with my businesses. I LOVE doing what I do. If you are interested in joining me, take a look at my sites. Let me know how you will handle your being laid off!

I am a senior level hands on Information Systems manager with proven ability to combine broad-based technology,
business and team management expertise and to implement corporate-wide technology solutions that meet the evolving Information Technology and office automation needs of an expanding organization. Very strong technical background with ablility to move into new areas rapidly. Ability to bridge technical and business areas. I have approximately 20 years of I.T. experience ranging from full time db developer for back office applications to heavily involved with some of the largest transactional web sites on the internet. I consider myself a very hands on individual who works diligently to see project completion and process improvement. I accomplish this because i sat in the trenches building software and performing break fix operations at the server level and workstation level and continue both to this day.
