It’s been quite a while since I wrote anything here, so I thought I’d scribble a line or 2…
I’m sure like a lot of other CATV people out there, I’m goin through a helluva time finding work.
See, I’m a Contractor. Either as a Construction Supervisor, Manager or Field Engineer.
The thought of working In-House just doesn’t appeal to me very much.
Too worried about appearances.
Too willing to kiss an ass or 2.
It’s just not an environment that I’m all that comfy in.
My hair is a bit long, I’ve got some ink on me and I am very much an Old-School LineDawg..!! I do what I have to at work to not look too wild, but with 25 years in the biz, it’s a little tough to change my ways now.
I know my business and I’ve been told I’m good at what I do.
I also love what I do.
It seems that a lot of Contractors and just about all of the MSO’s are tightening things up to where it’s become difficult for a lotta guys like me to find a good job.
Some of us have a “Colorful” past. That doesn’t mean we don’t know our business…. It also doesn’t mean that we still act the way we did years ago.
We just had a little more fun than most. 😉
I’ve seen it happen more than once where an MSO needed to turn to those of us with less than perfect pasts to fix what their squeeky clean “Linemen” tore up…..
I sincerely hope that those of you who are managers at an MSO or Contractor would consider a man’s integrity, talents and present state before you shoot him down for things that took place years or decades ago…..
You just might find yourself a loyal and talented employee……
If ya really wanna know who I am, go to: http://DaveRandall.co.cc for a good read. But careful with this one, it’s NOT for the faint of heart..!!!
Anyway, my search still continues for a Cable TV/Utility Contractor that is honest, has a good work-load and whose management is well versed in their fields of endevour….
