Sucks.. I got a job offer and at another place, a request to interview but they are both 30-40 miles away and nowhere near public transit so I turned them down. I'm realizing though, it probably wouldn't be too hard, with the internet, to figure out carpooling. I've never even thought about that. Hell, there's probably apps and facebook groups for that.

Anyway, this probably won't work (but can't blame me for trying :) ...)

If any Clevelanders (or even Columbusites) on here work at any companies that have an IT Department and / or a team of software / web developers and feel inclined to help me by passing my resume along to someone in HR or to a department head, that would be amazing. A simple e-mail to pass it along seems like it would be really effective. I would be eternally grateful and indebted to you. We all know referrals trump online submissions any day and I don't know many people at all up here, unfortunately. A lot of companies give really hefty referral bonuses, as well. I know I've worked for companies like that. Maybe yours does? My main goal in job-hunting is to make sure my resume at least gets SEEN. If they don't think I'd be a good fit, fine, maybe it's for the best but ATS (applicant tracking software) will weed out 95% or more of online applications / resumes before an HR person even has a chance to look through them. I found out how that works (or doesn't work) and it's very scary. If your resume doesn't have at least X number of keyword matches for the job description or skills and experience, it gets instantly deleted and they're never willing to explain to you their exact criteria.

I also wanted to reach out to Columbusites as well because there seems to be more Jr. level programming jobs in Columbus and I'd consider relocating there. Plus, companies can be headquartered in one city but have some of their departments in other Ohio cities. I'm really curious if anyone in Cincinnati works for Macys and wouldn't mind shooting over a resume for me... They actually have their IT division, called "Macy's Systems and Technology" up here in Lorain, which handles e-commerce for all of their brands and I'd be really interested in working there. They seem to have an excellent on-boarding program and lots of opportunity for advancement.

Anyway, if anyone cares to help me out (and hopefully help themselves if their company gives bonuses for referrals) please PM me. Remember Karma :) You do nice things to help people out and it comes right back around! Hehe.
Thanks :)

The position is open until filled.

Hey Musky, do you know if this position has been filled? I didn't see a jobs section on Euclid's website. My girlfriend is looking into internships. She's majoring in Marketing but now she's also minoring in Accounting and Urban Studies. When we first met, I'd prattle on and on about urban planning and architecture and she gradually just started getting more and more into it. Ha. She wants to be an Urban Planner in the public or private sector or work for a CDC or real estate developer. I'd imagine though, that most planning internships available favor students who are actually Urban Planning majors but CSU doesn't have it as an undergrad program. She gets straight As and she's an unbelievably dedicated, hard worker and is really passionate about economic development. She joined APA and attends their meetings. Even though most of her classes are business, it seems like there should be a lot of doors open for her in planning and development, even before obtaining a master's degree in UP. Doing things like cost / benefit analysis. I told her she should look into whether or not CSU has a GIS certification program. Apparently GIS isn't required for their urban studies minor which is really weird to me, but they do have some GIS classes available.

^ It looks like a good opportunity.  I dislike how City of Cleveland gives a wide salary range on open positions.  It would be better if they gave a realistic range so that people won't waste their time if the salary is too low.

Yeah, they always do that. Are there really applicants that they would actually only be willing to pay less than $30K a year, for a position that requires either a bachelor's degree and two years experience or a masters degree? You've gotta be kidding me. It definitely helps prove my point though about how ridiculously low salaries are in Cleveland.

That is literally my girlfriend's Dream Job. Being the chief planner of Cleveland. She only has a bachelor's in Urban Studies with a minor in Accounting and two internships under her belt and is about to start her masters in UP at CSU, though I. Maybe she should apply anyway. It's always good to put your name out there. The salary range gives me the impression that the chief planner position isn't necessarily the one available; that they're considering promoting from within but want to see what all applicants are out there before they make a move.

^ It might be worth her sending in a resume because there may be an entry level position opening too.  I do not think that Cleveland planners make $30k.  I think entry level planners make mid 40s with government benefits.
