You too?
I've been off since October except a few odd jobs.
Usually it's a week or less.
I think it will be convergence of Resume, phone call and job availabity which is hard to hit.
If all hit teir desk at the same time, they will no doubt take the guy that just applied instead of looking though all those Resumes.
Good luck.

I think your right about the resumes. I sometimes think I may be getting to old and these younger guys think they know more, but Im only 45 and feel pretty spry yet! I hope they at least look for experience instead of the top resume..

I'm 62 and plan to work till 75 and suspect they are not calling me because of my age, even if that is illegal.
But I just need one...It's out there (May untrue like the old saying everything works out for the best, but it is the proper reaction to life.)

You got it man, theres a whole lot of illegal out there but there really is nothing you can do about it. I just hope everything works out for the best. Im starting to doubt it though. I worked for a company that had a whole lot of druggys working for them and they said i was a liability because if i got hurt and took a drug test i would be clean and they would have to pay so they keep the ones doing drugs... Cant figure out what goes through these peoples minds. Thats when I decided I probably didnt need to be there anyway, cause I could get hurt by one of their upstanding drug addicts.

Daisys recruiting in Toronto, Ontario said: Hi Paul, I'm looking for site supers. 5 years minimum if you're interested.

Hello Daisy--I'm like everyone here, needing to set up an interview with a good company, but not getting responses I need. I get more rejections than offers-andvery few of them have come my way. I have submitted over 300 resumes out there from websites all over the net and world. My background is--everything. I have worked and traveled in almost 160 countries, 49 states, and 700+ cities worldwide. You would think someone would be interested. But after 40 years in this business, nothing surprises me anymore.

Supers--keep looking and be diligent, don't give up yet. If you have to accept a lesser position, do so because we all have to survive this somehow, and eating is better than starving.

Daisy, if you want to talk, email is brownld09@gmail.com. Thanks

I am not understanding the 5 year minimum for a site superintendent. I have 25 years in commercial construction and also have over 300 resumes out with only one interview. I would believe that when the economy turns there will be considerable opportunity for the more experienced super.

I have 25 years of experience in commercial and industrial construction, 15 as a superintendent. I've placed and finished over 35 million sq.ft. of concrete,installed industial floor coatings and have done steel erection and framing for many years. In the last 6 months I've sent over 100 resumes out without a response. I've never seen anything like this.

I feel for all of you. My husband and I lost our construction company of 12 years a couple winters ago. It was a small business, just enough to keep things at a somewhat comfortable level. This economic crunch has completely changed our lives. The hubby had to move out of town to find work and I lost my job as well. It's real hard out there right now in the construction business. I would say take what you can get right now if you get an offer. Even if you are worth $20-30 an hour, that rate of pay is almost inconceivable right now. Seems construction workers are a dime a dozen these days and they can easily find someone else cheaper... and you know I'm right ;)

So from a carpenter and carpenter's wife point of view... keep your heads up. Settle on your pay if you have to, at least to a point. Things will turn around one of these days. Don't feel degraded if you are offered a low paying job. That's just the norm right now, not only in the construction business, but it is hitting many other fields as well.

I wish you all luck in finding what you are looking for.

May I suggest you look at www.usajobs.gov. They're all government jobs. There are superintendant jobs and many many others. It's worth a look, and these people take care of you, believe it or not :) It's a b**** to get into the govt, but once you're in, you're in.

I agree, have been applying all over the country,only a few interviews and they were paying some ridiculous wages.One even said If I paid my own way out and back to california they would give me an interview.After 20 years doing this stuff you would think? I am still waiting as well. Indeed, Career builders,monster,I hire,etc... its just a bad time for anything in this industry.Still looking though.

Remember, the above mentioned job websites... you are sharing the exact same information with millions of other people. If you can, see if there are some more local not-so-popular job websites. Craigslist has gotten a bad name for certain things, but it's also a place to check out. You can check nationwide for jobs. Indeed.com is another place... oh yeah... we're here aren't we??? ;) Like I said before, www.usajobs.gov is an excellent place to look for jobs. The applications are lengthy, you cannot be a felon, and you need to be a US citizen. Other than that, you're go to go.

My husband has been in the construction field since he was 14, and he's 44 now. I don't think age should have anything to do with landing a job either. With age comes expertise. I was one of those who prefered to hire the older carpenters. They know what they're doing and seem to have a better understanding that 2:30 is NOT beer:30!!!!

Oh yeah, another place to check out is on some local tv news channels online. We have a few here in Oregon that have job listings on them. They are not as popular as these big named job websites where everyone and their dog visits 1.2 million hits a day. Like www.koin.com and www.ktvk.com.... just some examples.

160 countrys, 40 year... = consistantly a new job every 3 months maximum. You might consider that those that do the hiring might be able to use a calculator, apply some brain function, and see through your bragadocious bovine scatology. Dang...I must be talking to SUPER SUPER.

Not really, just working for Halliburton,Bechtel, and I.M. PEI for a while there, plus about 80 Duty-Free shops, Embassy remodels, etc... But just for the record, I have only worked for 7 different companies in 18 years, while overseas, as quite a few will network and pool their employees/contractors and the you can get 'round-robin-ed' around. Used to be good money.
Still looking, and still getting a lot of "for Future" opportunities. I am going to have to go back to commercial driving just to survive "OBAMAISM 2009".

I could not have said it ant better! I hope all these company's hiring book smart Superintendents that have never been on a job relize soon that they can not handle a big job. It takes a superintendent that has field knowledge with hands on exsperience with all trades and and understanding that most(all) sets of plans there is something that just doesn't work out. And that is where exsperience can save the company money we can find the conflicts before it is even built. Good luck to all of you looking for work that has over ten years of on site work. God Bless!
