Employment

This is not the post I’d like to be writing, but life goes on :)

If you’re in the Houston area and are looking for a highly motivated individual with 9 years of solid experience in Architectural Design, Graphics, Construction Documentation, Construction Administration experience, and obviously extremely passionate about Revit and BIM, then give me a shout. I’m available!

I’m trying to stay in the Houston area (ahhh, the kids and the web of connections for their education and health make it difficult to move around). Depending on how long the search takes, I might start considering to expand my geographical location, but at this time I plan on staying around the 4th largest city in the US ;) I will also entertain some commuting and remote work. If you have needs for Revit content creation, I would also be more than happy to partner with you in developing families.

You can take a look at my fancy resume here (not the most up to date) or the text version here (up to date).

Finally, don’t think this blog is going to die. I have a lot to talk about and share!

Goodluck on your job hunting Dave.
I enjoy your blog and hope that you have the time to continue it.

Hmmmm don't tempt me ;) Well, make an offer I guess and we shall see haha. I do have family in Melbourne and another city that escapes me at the moment. Wish to visit Australia someday.

Daniel said...

Bro, sending stuff your way right now :-)
And damn it people, HIRE HIM he's the best there is.
Actually let's see who's the lucky one.
And of course...if you feel like moving i know a few places ;)

Patrick Davis said...

If I hear of anything I will let you know.

Robert said...

Check your AUGI account for a PM.

that sucks Dave. not the post I was expecting to see when I came by for my daily visit...

Dave Baldacchino said...

Thanks all for your sympathy :) Dan, clearly someone doesn't think the same of me as you do haha. Thanks Pat and I'm sorry that getting images didn't work out. I worked it all the way on my side but language got in the way of some free publicity. Robert, thanks for the message. I'm on it!

Steve said...

Chipped in my own little bit to help get the word out, let us know where you land! Take a couple weeks off and enjoy the kids...don't rush into something else.

Erik said...

Here's wishing you a short "down time." I think your connections with the Revit online community will pay off in spades.

Good luck

Tony C said...

Good Luck - What happen to SHW that they would let you out of their grasp?

coreed said...

Good Luck Dave. Wow!! this company must be loaded with Revit talent.

Dave Baldacchino said...

Steve, thanks for your very nice words on RevitJobs. I'm flattered :) I'm not rushing into anything; I want a career, not just a job. Erik, we shall see if that helps any haha.

Thanks Tony. It's all about the money; everyone is replaceable. Large firms tend to throw a lot of "carrots" (in words only usually) in times when they need you, but when times get tough, you're just another number and nothing else matters (short sighted? I think so).

Coreed, I did my best to share knowledge and there truly are some great Reviteers (above all, Architects, Engineers and designers). Won't mention their names but they know who they are ;)

David Kingham said...

Sorry they let you go, seems very short sighted. If you want to come to Colorado let me know buddy!

Dave Baldacchino said...

Thanks Dave :) If I find a good deal on skiis, I might think about it haha.

Anonymous said...

I am sorry to hear that.
It is definitely their loss to let some talent Revit guru go.
Good luck and wish you land on a better opportunity.

Just by chance the past 3 weeks I happened to be looking up "jobs", the best offers I found were on the East & West Coasts. (New York & LA) But there is one little known niche that is rising up that I don't want others (noobys)to find out & dilute the prospects here in Texas, the ones' knowing where BIM is headed & imersed in it know what I'm talking about. Look there! You might be seeing me there soon enough. If so I'll see in having you replace me if still no luck =)

David Light said...

A shocker! Sorry to here this Dave, like others have said, there loss! Whilst I may be the other side of the pond I seem to have contacts all over. So if I hear anything I will drop you a line.

Carlo said...

JE Dunn has a BIM position listed as available in Houston, though I am not sure if its availability is current.

Jason said...

Dave,

Sorry to hear about your situation. I just checked my company (HNTB) careers page and didn't see any openings that fit you in our Texas offices. I'll keep my ears open for ya.

Jason

Mike and Mary Jones said...

Wow. I'm sure something will arise where you can utilize your Revit skills.

Good time to start your own business? Have Revit, will travel?

Dave Baldacchino said...

Thanks Jason. In Houston HNTB seems to be only geared towards transport engineering.

Mike, that's been on my mind and I'm seriously thinking about it. At least for the short term.

Richard Binning said...

Good luck Dave!

I'll keep my ears open in Atlanta for you. Must be a firm with vision looking for a talented guy like you.

Cheers,

Richard
