With 15 years' experience and graduate degrees he should have previous employers pleading for his time and be willing to pay for it. The fact that they aren't tells me all I need to know.
It shouldn't...I think that's the problem he's having. If anyone looks at his resume they likely pre-judge him. The problem is he spent too much time in a job that held him back & stiffled him, IMO
. He was loyal yet got no loyalty back. He did whatever the hospital needed (including minor coding), networking, servers, he designed the first & only intranet across 2 hospitals, built a training room, implemented toasters throughout to avoid purchase of extra computers, not to mention he worked across 2 facilities AND provided Tech Support to very demanding users. He also dealt with surplus equipment and developed relationships with local area educators. And that just scratches the surface. He was innovative in his position (especially with cost savings) yet never rewarded. I guess most of you would know little about working for the state but they prefer arse kissers regardless if they are lazy. My husband isn't an arse kisser but he's an extremely hard worker and very honest in what he does.
Epic wanted him but they only offer jobs in Wisconsin. You must relocate. Sorry, I'm not moving there. It's just so frustrating for both of us.
BTW, his graduate degrees are what he is leaning on now with his teaching jobs. That is, afterall, why he obtained a Master's in Computer Science. But that doesn't land him the fulltime job he's looking for..
