    there are tons of jobs and opportunities in south florida.

    Wow Tard! First time I have read a reply from you in sentence form!!!

    I work as well in the environmental health field but in the service dept- I repair stuff in labs... I'm usually all over the state on a given day, but I can live near the beach and surf when the waves are good. More then getting a job near the beach- look for something with flexibility.

    idk, seems like telling people where good jobs are by the beach is kinda like telling them where the good surf spots are...the more you tell, the more people they tell, and the more crowded the spot gets.

    I commute 2 to 5 days a week from Long Branch to NYC. 1.5hrs on a train each way. I can get out in the AM until about 7:30 before I have to pack it in and am usually home by 7ish for the evening sesh. If im working from home then I'll take a break once an hour to check my email from my phone and respond if needed; typically I can get whatever needs to be done before and after my sesh and not have to worry about it. A lot of places in NYC will allow employees to work from home, its becoming routine nowadays. Might be a good fit for ya....
    The train ride is nice and chill too. even can pound a few brews on the ride home!
    I used to live in NNJ and would have to commute to the city and ocean, now its just the city. Found a reasonable place with utilities included that I can see the breakers from my window. Overall very pleased with how its working out. Highly recommend, if its an option for ya.
    This will be my first fall/winter down there so we'll see how that works out...

    I worked at the hilton in Atlantic city for 3 years. Never missed a swell. Had a view of the waves from my office.

    I mostly been in the construction business my whole life,building shyt.houses,restauraunts,warehouses,structural shyt,fabrication,etc.my last job I worked for a contractor and we redid all the restaurants on ocean ave in sea bright that got wiped out from sandy.i havnt even been over there since I got laid off,im sure they are done by now.its all different genres of workers,first the structural people come in hang beams,then we come lay down the studs,then the electrical people come in,followed by the hvac people.my last day working we kicked azz to get all the framing done finished 7 at night,so a 13hr workday.its like once ur done if theres not another contract waiting ur screwed,thats what happened to me.my foremans office was in shrewsberry and we did jobs from up north in Newark to down south in lbi.it was a great job,best part was driving to the jobs we'd smoke blunts in the worktruck,the crazy Italian boss would come out spittin a fuss.u may think that sounds bad,but we had a few guys who would drink and drive,while snorting blues so pot didn't mess anything up.one day dude was driving and the project fell out the back of the truckbed and broke into a thousand pieces on ocean ave.its good to travel in work

I'm actually a supervisor / manager for 23 sales agents right now, so don't know if I want to hit the phones / pavement anymore, but I'll do what I gotta do to be by the water. I would prefer to run a small call center or be in charge of a small group of outside sales reps. Maybe even do some sales / marketing for a place like Ron Jon or something. That would be ideal, but I know the odds of landing something ideal isn't likely.
    Huge growth in sustainability right now. And will be for MANY years to come. Do some research on that. Also, saas companies are ideal for someone who wants to work remotely and have that kind of freedom. With a saas company like salesforce.com or cake, you bust your ass on the phone for a few months get some accounts and coast if thats what your looking for. I know a guy that works for salesforce, has 8 accounts and makes over 1m yr 90% from home. My uncle makes low 6 fig with the same type of gig at ibm working from home. if your a good sales guy.... it's out there if your creative in your research.

    Thanks for the tips, i'll keep that in mind. Working from home works for me, just as long as it's for a legit company

Large gov't run events need extras too. Think about all of the large festivals, sports events, graduations, etc. in a tourist town to figure out what opportunities might exist.

    I know of a guy here in VB that did just that and from the looks of things he's doing pretty well and constantly expanding the services they provide. http://sepeminc.com/aboutus.html
    goose how much does he make? I got my EMT cert but it sure as schitt wasn't to make a buck off it or get an EMT job. They pay like 12 bucks an hour in most places. That couldn't even finance my quiver and coconut water.

    Exactly what I was saying earlier in da tread SIadmin brah. The self-directed get fed.

    He's actually been working up to this quite a bit lately. It's like the quiet girls, once you get them screaming they never shut up. Good thing we dig what metard brings to the table. Braddah can flap his trap at will.

    Breh, that's the equation right there. Same equation that Erock had. WHERE IS EROCK?!?!?!

    Dis braddah ain't joking. He sold me 8 plungers last week. What the hell am I gonna do with 8 plungers?


    Funny that dis tread has become the Share What You Do For Work tread. So much personal disclosure on SI lately. The tree of trust is a place of comfort. This close-knit break would stomp any other virtual surf gang anywhere. What other rogue forums are left for us to threaten and conquer?

    I organize events and I'm required by the city to hire a couple depending on the expected attendance. 2 months ago I had to hire 2 for 3 days and had to pay 42 per hr for one and 30 per hr. for the other. They get you that way...one gets supervisor status. Granted there are a few hands in the cookie jar (prob taking ~40% of that) before the people that actually work get paid.
