[ShovelBums.Org] -> [BioBums] Field Biologist - Desert Tortoise - Nevada and surrounding area




Just a quick note:  BioBums has 69 members in its first two days (that is all thanks to you!), and BioBums received its first job advertisement today (below).  During the start up period for BioBums I will be cross-pollinating jobs from that list to ShovelBums to help spread the word about the positions.  What I would like to ask is that if you know of a bio who is a good fit for a position (or you know a bio who knows more bios) if you could, in the ShovelBums tradition, forward these messages on to them.  And if you could put in a good word for ShovelBums/me so that they know they are signing up for (what I believe) is an honest service that really wants to try to help out, I would appreciate that to.  Sometimes it is that word of mouth "hey I know this bloke and he is an alright guy so you can trust you won't get e-amil bombarded with crap, spam, pictures of cute kittens dancing to La Macarena etc..." that helps other scientists to open their already full inbox to a new service.

The most important aspect of this list is that it is for one purpose only.: announcing jobs/non paying volunteer postings in the international CRM field at all levels; Field Tech, Professors, SHPO's, etc...  Caveat Emptor though my friends.  Not all jobs pay the same, nor is their treatment of employees the same - as the companies are checking your references, you should also check them out - make sure they pay fair wages, treat their employees professionally, and do quality work.  If you have at least a BA you deserve fair remuneration, so ask for it, and in turn you provide your employer with excellent service.   You ARE a trained professional, NOT a "shovelbum"  - the name is in jest - act professional, expect to be treated like one.
