JOB OPPORTUNITIES 
======================================================================

SEEKING WORK
------------

I am a CAD Draftsman who is searching for work.

I have more than two years experience designing Fire Alarm Systems for field
installation, mostly Monaco (http://www.monaco.com) M-1 & M-2 Addressable and
Conventional Systems. I also have experience bidding on jobs, and writing proposals.
I wrote a Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet specifically for Cost Estimating Fire Alarm/
Electrical installation.

My CAD experience is excellent, I use AutoCAD R14. I can offer you: 1. Device
Location Floor Plans 
2. One Line Wiring Diagrams 
3. Riser Diagrams 
4. As-Builts 
5. Hood Suppression Systems (plan, elevation & 3D Views) 
6. Evacuation Plans  

If you need someone to do your CAD drafting for you, or know someone who may,
please contact me. Everything can be done via Email.

My rates are very reasonable, $15.00 an hour which is negotiable! I can also
work by the project.

Thanks.
