    You might consider moving to Indy where 90% of the race teams are.

    yeah, but here in indy there are an awful lot of out of work GOOD crew guys already looking for jobs. the economy sucks a whole lot in indy in general so if you moved out here to work in racing and then fell on your face, you have the potential to be put in a bad spot. just my $.02...

    Learning to write would go a long way to getting people to notice positive things instead of focusing on simple things like not capitalizing "I" or even something as simple as the first word in every sentence.

    Judging by your age, you should be writing at a college level or close to it.
    The articulate do not use "cant" they spell the words they intend to use.

    Understand Greg, I am not trashing you. I am trying to give you good solid advice to further your presentation. I have spent a good bit of my career in management and have seen many times that some people cannot spell the job they are applying for. Do you think I would consider them above somebody that has actually mastered our language? Do you think it would be fair to those that put forth an honest effort?


    Write as if your life depended on it. In earning a living, it just might.

    Again, good luck in your endeavors.

    From experiance:

    Mail your resumee's out,
    I was told before I mailed mine out, that most things of that nature during race weekends end up in the trash, and after being there, I can verify it.

    After mailing them, I waited and after a couple of weeks of nothing, the phone started ringing.

    A CDL would also be a good investment prior too mailing, so that it can be included in your resumee'.

    Good luck to you,

    vic just curious what your age is?? i'm gonna guess older than either greg or myself. i only ask as you made a point regarding greg's age based on his grammar usage. i agree with your comment regarding proper english, grammar and punctuation when it applies to a letter, resume or article that will be published.... but i have to very much disagree with you in light of where we are currently posting. very plain, lax grammar and punctuation as well as common text/message board/forum abbreviations and slang are just a sign of the times and how the upcoming generations communicate. i believe it is all a matter of the environment you find yourself in and who/when you are trying to communicate.

    kinda funny... my dad and several of his buddies have learned that if they want to keep up with myself and their kids they better learn to text and FB in order to stay in touch with what is going on in our lives.

    just a sign of the times and technology

    just my $0.02 on the matter... hope my spell check fixes all the major errors! lol (<-- that means 'laugh out loud') :D
