ShovelBums 21st anniversary - TL:DR - Thank you

R. Joe Brandon
 

21 Years?
Thank you all.
Seriously. 

ShovelBums only exists, and works, because of you supporting it by helping to spread the word about ShovelBums as a useful, (extremely boring) niche, tool at your disposal 24/7/365. By you finding work through the service (60,000 positions and counting) and by you. when you are in a position to need it, utilizing ShovelBums to field the staff you need that you were not able to get through your own personal professional networks. And the professors, who once utilized ShovelBums at a critical juncture in their career, sharing the knowledge of it with the next generation.

Without you? ShovelBums is nothing. 

With you? ShovelBums is something. 

And in these strange pandemic days we live in ShovelBums will strive to continue to be a useful tool to you all. There have been 22 postings this April, and it is on track to be the worst April in 20 years (the first year there was only one on the last day of the month). March wasn't much better tying for the lowest number of postings, 32, in 21 years.

Yeah i get it. That does suck. But that also indicates that companies are properly utilizing their primary tool for hiring. Their own staff's recommendations. Which is how Archaeology has always worked. To borrow from an old archaeology demi-god I had the privilege to work under, Doug Loebig, always "Work from your known into the unknown". And that also applies to finding competent professionals to compliment your project, work from those you know. And when that doesn't pan out? ShovelBums is here for you. Always.

It is going to be tough my friends. I don't need to expand on that. We are all scientists. We know. 

But through it all. ShovelBums will still be here:

For you.

Because of you. 

Thank you.


Best,

R. Joe Brandon
