Default Got laid off, need sugestions of who may be hiring!

I used to work at Katech engines in Clinton Township Michigan as a mechanic and chassis and engine dyno operator. GM's cuts pulled a bunch of programs out of there and they are experiencing a massive slowdown. Since I was the low man on the totem pole, I was laid off. I have over 10 years in the automotive industry mostly working on high performance cars and engines and 6 years as a shop manger. Can anyone suggest anybody who may be hiring?

I'm in dire need of a number of guys, too bad I'm in commercial printing 1,000 miles from you. Central VA has the lowest un-employment rates in the country right now!!!

It might be worth dialing a call into Ben from Precision Offshore Marine in Grand Haven, Michigan. He is looking for some good mechanics to work on Hi-Perf boats (Skaters, Apache's, Cig's, Saber's, etc, etc.) In fact, he may be needing a dyno man. (616) 844-1000

Also, just for your info, "JimV" is renting space in Ben's shop to port heads.

Sucks man, good luck finding a new gig. Is a call to Sterling out of the question?
