    Any companies hiring?

    MikePTMikePT Member, Provider

    Hi folks,

    As you may know, I own an Design/IT company in Portugal. We are NOT related to VPS, Dedicated Servers and such. We only provide bare cPanel hosting for some companies and email. Never been a competitor, at all. We work with Vinyl (large format), car wrapping, business cards, and the list goes on.

    We invested a lot in this company but business isn't going too well right now in Portugal. August was a really bad month for us.. I need to get a job as DevOp / System Administrator or something alike to fund our company and give use to my time. José, our Designer, has some work, but I need to find a stable company to work for, preferably long-term. I'm always investing in order to grow.

    Do you guys know any company hiring right now?
    I'm aware many Hosting companies are always hiring, but those don't hire that often. They simply have a "We're hiring" page in their website.

    Here's my LinkedIn for reference: https://linkedin.com/in/miguelangelopt

    I hope I can get some suggestions, as I need a job as soon as possible. Those who know me, are aware that I'm a great employee.

    Cheers,
    Miguel

      I don't like competing for the project, at all. I'm looking for a serious company, webhosting related, or related to Amazon AWS since I've used their infrastructure for over 5 years and possess a quite big experience there. E.G: Load Balancers, DB clusters, VPC's, etc.

      Let's write a bunch of content for LET under pseudonyms and make some serious CC dolla.

    • JonchunJonchun Member, Provider

      I'm sure you'll find a job fairly quickly as long as your asking salary is as low as your asking prices when you're looking for servers around here.

      I think the rule "Don't be a dick" applies here.

      This is LET, what are you expecting? People want to pay less for the value. I've written a month ago the reason. Basically, as long as the VPS's aren't for business, then I don't need to spend that much money on it. That's how you try to save money.

      Not an issue. Just don't want him or anyone else replying to the topic if they can't be of any help.

      Hehehe, well... August was a terrible month for us.
      We have the office bill paids and such. But... Social security is ruining our plan. We need to pay it for the last 8 months, so that's why we're quite a bit desperate to solve the issue.

      Even though, I need to get a job, as José is getting some work but I am not.
      We have quite a few big projects going on, the budget hasn't been approved yet, so, bad luck, you can say.

      I wish you the best luck mate. I am positive that things can change.

      cut that crap:

      I'm 25 years old ...

      I have been working in the Webhosting industry for about 12 years.

      nobody is gonna deny that you might be addicted to IT stuff from back then, and might have earned some bucks by doing stuff, but "working in the industry" ... aged 13? seriously?

      that is a lot of overestimating yourself I'd say ;-) or you've really been j. nuggets back then? guess you wouldn't want to be in the same category like him, would you?

      I don't blame you, London's fucking horrible.

      We just brought a guy over from Brazil, and he lived in London for 2 weeks before moving up to Sheffield where he's going to be based permanently. After initially being a bit apprehensive, he absolutely loves Sheffield. Everyone's so much friendlier, the pubs and restaurants are so much cheaper, and there are (apparently) lots more people on Tinder...

    • Sent a PM

    • BradND said: Your LinkedIn profile screams desperation, just thought you'd like to know.

      It's the Grindr item, isn't it...

      Actually, I didn't get "desperation" from Miguel's profile as much as "young".

      @MrGeneral, my advice is to rewrite your profile so that it sounds more like you're an accomplished professional who's moving from one gig to the next. Saying you learned cpanel when you were 14 or what OS you installed when you were a kid sounds very amateurish (no offense, just trying to help). The intro paragraph should answer the question "how do I fit into IT organizations" or "I am this kind of worker for this kind of job" or "my career focus is X".

      Usual advice for job history is the classic "action" formula: "there was this problem, I did this awesome thing, then this fantastic result happened because of it". "Supported managed/VPS customers" is so vague I don't even know what that means...you reset passwords and told them how to pick a Wordpress theme, or you compiled PHP modules for them and wrote firewall rules? Etc.

      It never hurts to invest an hour or two looking at LinkedIn to find some great profiles, then copy the style.

      That said, I'm not sure if Linkedin is going to be what gets you a job, but it's handy to have as a "business card" in the sense that it can be on your resume and you can point prospective employers at it.

      Just advice.

      As for UK, well, I do have family and friends in London. They love it, but the weather would kill me hehehe. It's also expensive. Travelling to London is ok if, for example, a DC hires me to setup a few racks. That'd be OK.

      From just looking at your LinkedIn quickly you should probably target yourself as a "problem solver" as you've spent a very short amount of time at multiple companies.

      To be fair they are AWS. 700 could just be their max scale up and they could normally sit around 1/4 of that.

      Desperation may have been a little harsh, I meant your profile is a little in your face - over the top on justifying your experience.

      Others have echoed in this thread already but tinkering for 7 years and 6 years in an enterprise environment is a lot different than someone with 13. All I care about (as someone who regularly hires) What have you done in the real world.

      The money is in becoming a SME - specialise in something. The more specialist you are the more you get paid. Simple rack and stack jobs are typically not the best paid, choose one area and grow this.

      There's many companies that look for techs to setup their racks, sometimes they're not even in those locations.
      I have a client that might need me to do that, since they're not even from EU.

      Hehee, they have a lot of stuff there, which I obviously can't disclose. Their team is excellent and it was an exellent job.

      Not at all! But I understand what you mean. Thing is, I started selling webhosting accounts back in 2013 / 2014, seriously, hehe. It allowed me to buy what I needed. Teenager stuff. I'll redact that, and I appreciate your input!

      Teenager stuff = porn?

      No, not at all. Food, cookies, and such :P

      From just looking at your LinkedIn quickly you should probably target yourself as a "problem solver" as you've spent a very short amount of time at multiple companies.

      BTW, I'm amazed that a simple "dude, you wanna hookup" profile site like grindr requires 700 servers to run.

      Seven freakin' hundred.

      To be fair they are AWS. 700 could just be their max scale up and they could normally sit around 1/4 of that.

      I've done a lot of AD-HOC / one-time jobs.
      I worked for Tapatalk for 5 years, though.

      Your LinkedIn profile screams desperation, just thought you'd like to know.

      But good luck all the same, the market for DevOps seems to be picking up right now.

      Thank you for your opinion @Brad, what would you change in my profile? I mean, what's giving you the impression that I'm desperate? (Although I am, but my LinkedIn hasn't been edited lately)

      >

      Desperation may have been a little harsh, I meant your profile is a little in your face - over the top on justifying your experience.

      Others have echoed in this thread already but tinkering for 7 years and 6 years in an enterprise environment is a lot different than someone with 13. All I care about (as someone who regularly hires) What have you done in the real world.

      The money is in becoming a SME - specialise in something. The more specialist you are the more you get paid. Simple rack and stack jobs are typically not the best paid, choose one area and grow this.

      Understood, and thank you for your opinion. I'll definitely work in my LinkedIn profile in the next few days.

      Thank you all folks

      Yeah, and there is no problem with that. Just looking at it though it looks like you held actual positions rather than completing a contract then left 3 months later.

      I wish you the best of luck finding a position :)

    • Here in indonesia, economy is slow too, its like everyone is compete in everything. hope this going well someday.
