UVSC has a job opening for someone who knows Linux well. If you think
you are l33t with Linux, but haven't gotten a job working with Linux,
then this might be the position to try out. The job isn't posted on the
UVSC human resource pages, because the supervisor hiring wants to know
the person before posting the job. This is make sure that the applicant
has the skills required to do the Job. The supervisor is Gordon Morrell,
and his office is in the Computer Science, and Engineering building, on
the fifth floor next to the Computer Science offices. You don't have to
have previous work experience to get this job, but you do have to be
able to demonstrate that you have skillz. Your official job title would
be "Desktop Support," but don't let that scare you away. Your main
duties would be general Linux support. Having experience with Gentoo
will only help you. Even though you won't be installing Gentoo on the
other systems often; it will still be beneficial to know Gentoo. The
install of Linux distro's will vary. Currently the distros installed are
Gentoo, Redhat, and Suse, and Mandrake. This means that there must be
some understanding of how Linux is held together. I just left there
because I moved to Logan.

Just to remind you, you need to get to know the supervisor. There would
be a preference for the candidate to know electronics as well. This
means that know how a transistor works, and how to use it, could get you
the job.
