Hello Everyone,

A while back I put out an announcement that I was moving to a new position
at Goddard Space Flight Center.  Well I have moved, and despite their best
efforts, my old position is still vacant.  If you know anyone good with Mac
computers and Publishing/Drawing software who is looking for a job, let
them know.


I have moved over to one of the mission project offices here at Goddard
Space Flight Center.  The Central Graphics Support group is looking for a
replacement who is knowledgeable in creation, design, and fixing of
electronic publications documents.

I consider myself to be an Illustrator first and a designer second, but
they would be just as happy with the reverse here, as long as you
understand how to prepare digital files for printing, and have a good grasp
on how to configure Mac graphics machines.  Any evidence that you are
keeping yourself informed of changes with graphics software & technology,
or understand how to work with the 4-color print process will greatly
enhance your desirability. There is almost no hand art done here any more,
but my personal opinion is that background is a good one, as long as you
have all the computer skills they want.  The position is being offered
through the support contractor to our code.  Submit resumes, they will be
reviewed and those that make the cut will be passed on to the project
manager for consideration.

Pass this on to anyone you consider qualified.

Good Luck,
Britt Griswold
Goddard Space Flight Center
