[Asis-l] REDUX: Morris County, NJ: Deputy Network Administrator

ASIS&T Friends:

	I have this great job going begging (since AUGUST, folks!).  No -- it 
doesn't pay a lot, but the pay's not scandalous.  And we have very good 
benefits, and fine financial support from the Freeholders (unprecedented, 
certainly in New Jersey).  And it's not like I've been deluged with good 
folks who are simply turned off by the cash compensation, because I've 
never even mentioned it.  And don't ask!  ;-)

In point of fact:  after distributing this widely to every appropriate grad 
school placement office in PA (well, not Pitt, but this time 'round, yes), 
NJ, and NY, advertising in the New York Times and the Newark Star Ledger 
and NJLA, and sending off to a couple of head-hunter friends as a heads up 
-- all of this beginning last October -- I have been underwhelmed with an 
unmentionably small number of aspirants with whom to follow up.

Any feedback on this posting would help, of course.  What am I not seeing 
here?  Sorry that I can't point you to a website for this; that may be a 
deficit in and of itself.

And now, I'm going back to the Placement office trough!
