Seeking employment in the VENTURA area
 
Hello fellow Calgunners.

It's been a rough year. I had a great marketing job in an industry that I loved. I was coordinating trade shows/events and also managing retail marketing materials and relations for a large surf brand.

Obviously, covid hasn't been kind to the trade show or retail industry. I was laid off and have been getting by on my savings, selling personal items, and renting out my RV on airbnb.

I have a friend who was getting me a union job as a grip in the movie industry. I worked a couple of days and it felt great. My experience setting up trade shows translated very well and the work felt natural. It was a good fit and paid well......Now the unions are going on strike right when I need the work the most.

Im feeling somewhat deflated and desperate and just nervous for my young family.

I'm spending the day sending out as many job applications as I can. I wanted to reach out to the Calguns community to see if anyone is looking for someone or has any suggestions.

I have a great working attitude and I don't complain. I have reliable transportation and I'm willing to commute. I have a business degree and am proficient in sales and marketing but I'm also not afraid to get my hands dirty.

Im extremely mechanically inclined and have a background in automotive/motorcycle mechanics.

It's been a while but I've done a lot of mig/tig welding in my day.

Im good at woodworking and used to save my company a lot of money building retail and trade show displays and cases in house.

I have sales experience and enjoy the process. I would love to get into firearm or related product sales.

I'm open to anything.

Thanks in advance for any help offered.

-John

The company I work for is about to hire for an open sales position in the next week or two. Not exactly glamorous (mattress/bedding), but it's steady and pay is pretty decent. They look for past sales exp, and a relatively clean background. It's split time between Ventura and Moorpark.
