[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: Here follows a 'help wanted' ad which
has appeared in our daily newspaper (Independence Reporter) for more
than a week, day after day. Apparently, they are having a little
trouble filling the position, so I volunteered to print it here in the
Digest to let others know about it. You *do* need to live in the
s.e. Kansas area (no law regarding it, etc, but you don't want a long
commute.) Neodesha, Kansas is a small town (about 2000 residents);
their closest big town is Independence (about 8000 people) and
Coffeyville (12,000). It's a rural setting. Neodesha is about 15
miles north of here (a very easy commute; many folks live in Indy and
commute to work in Neodesha, (phonetic pronounciation = Nee-ode-a-shay)
and vice-versa. People are very laid back and casual around here, and
you might be surprised at the inexpensive cost of living. PAT]

Now here is the ad which has been running daily in the paper:

"MEC Company is an Equal Opportunity Employer"


[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: I would not expect anyone to drive
all the way to Neodesha (from Silicon Valley for example, or even
Texas or New York) but I suspect if you sent them a resume stating
your credentials/qualifications/requirements, etc they would be
happy to look at it if you stated plainly your willingness to
relocate to s.e. Kansas, and stating that you *would* come to visit
in person if there was any serious interest. The telephone number
(which was not included in the ad) is 620-325-2673, and I suppose
you *could* call to explain *why* you were not showing up in
person at first. They also have an office in Cherryvale, KS and
Coffeyville, KS. Tell them you read about the job in the Independence
Reporter, via TELECOM Digest. It would be **great** to see one of
you guys (otherwise in the mood to be in this area) get the job, and
I am **certain** most of you would easily qualify. PAT]
