Up and Coming life events for Cougar
« on: May 03, 2015, 12:19:49 AM »
Lots of possible changes going on right now. 1. I excepted a new job that will start in August. 2. I am interviewing for two others outside of the town I live in which would require me to move.

1. Requires me to work 0900 GMT till 2000 GMT every Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. I do have the rest of the week off from work though. 18.60/hour. Do not have to move. This one I excepted unless one of the others comes up.
2. requires me to work 2100 GMT till 0500 GMT Monday through Friday night my time. Some on call time. 18.25/hour. Have to move an hour away.
3. Requires me to work Monday through Friday, possible out of town time, maybe on call time. 24.00/hour. Have to move an hour away.

Issues this could have with the VU.
1. With job one that I would not be available for TANKS, HAVOC, or DOW for about 6 months at the earliest when I could try for a different shift, and different shift might be .50/hour less or more.
2. With job 2 more on call time, higher cost of living, but with less money. Could limit my ability for mission making dramatically.
3. With job 3 is the best options other than having to move, but could have some long salary hours, and could also dramatically reduce my ability to make missions.

For any of the options I am asking for those that like, know how to, and could step up in mission making over the next two months. Taking this time would allow for you to gain the abilities, confidence, and mission making prowess to have your missions used on a regular basis for TANKS and DOW missions. If you look in the mission design thread, I have posted on doing a how to mission make stream or class/information session. It would be great for those that can even a little to step up and prepare to make some missions for the VU in the future. Link  is here. http://dogsofwarvu.com/forum/index.php/topic,465.0.html

Hopefully everything works out for me with a job that allows me to play on the weekends, and enough time to make a mission here and there with everyone's help here.

Thanks

The company that I work for; I had an interview to work for them at Excel Enery, which is a large power compnay IN colorada, ND, SD, WI, MI, and down south. They called my boss I have now to ask how easy or hard it would be to replace me. Sounds positive. :)

This would be option number 3, and my preferred option.  ;D

As we know, all your missions involve shooting through bushes at 100M range, when we are designed for 3,000M engagements.  If you have to take a job which involves you being unable to create missions, I am totally confident I can create interesting and engaging missions with no F**ing bushes!!

All the best for the optimal decision.

Haha Durham. I understand you need perfect conditions to kill things in your tank, and anything less than that, you have troubles.  :P I welcome the chance to play some of your missions, where you exceed the standards of mine.  ;D 8)

I am thinking he was drunk based on the phone conversation we had on the phone. As I was out for a friends birthday party as well. LOL

Well it is looking more and more like I will be moving in 4 to 6 weeks to start a new job. The job would be for Xcel energy through Securitas contract to be the security project manager one of two positions, so I will be sharing half the responsibilities for the 5 state area, and over 250 different sites.

They have not told me personally, but current boss was asked how hard it would be to replace me last week, and this week after he got tired of waiting to know for sure, called up and asked if he needed to find a replacement or not. They told him that corporate was dragging their feet in finalizing things, but he was told to find a replacement for me. They did not give a time frame for it, but I am guessing 4-6 weeks.

Good news on the job front, and the next phase in a career and life.  ;D fingers crossed!!!!  8)

Well I did not get either of the jobs I wanted.  >:(
I do still have a job all tho it is part time right now.
In August I start another job (not want I want to do) making more money then I get now, and has more hours than I do now.

So putting the nose back to grind stone to get the jobs I would like, and I am qualified for.

What this means is I will have the time for mission making till I can find and get a different job.
In August though I will not be able to play on Saturdays and Sundays till 2100 GMT at the earliest. I will be able to get online then, play, and go right to sleep after working a 11 hour shift to get ready for the next day 11 hour shift. ???

The thinks we do for the things we like to do. 8)

Sorry to hear about your set-back Cougar. We all enjoy your missions very much and I find them very challenging and interesting. I for one appreciate your efforts in this regard and look forward to seeing more unique and dynamic missions. Having said that, don't over-extend yourself on the weekends. Get the rest you need and be safe. I'm sure that with persistence and patience you'll get the job you want. Bribing a few public officials wouldn't hurt either (just kidding).

Thanks Beef. It is in my nature to do more than I probably should, but if it makes me and others happy, then it is OK with me.  ;D

New interview to be the systems specialist for US bank in 30 states. Not as good as the last one, bit a step in the right direction. Fingers crossed for Monday afternoon.
