I have been lurking here for years, managed to start a small business, and sell roughly $200K of products I made on John's Microcarve machines.
However, with college done, me being married, and other changes--I need to seek employment, and relegate my current 3D profiled "artwork" to weekends.
Therefore, I have been searching for work, however, I've found it difficult likely since people either see a fresh BSBA grad or a CNC operator/technician--who's not proficient in the major CAD/CAM packages. I am good with people, technically minded, and enjoy business--so I am hoping an employer finds value on these premises.

I'm looking for work in Raleigh, Durham, Chapel-hill, Morrisville, and so forth--I am flexible about my roles, responsibilities, and have hands on experience.
PM me if you have a position, a firm that would find me valuable, or other $0.02.
Here's a piece of my resume on what I've been doing over the past 5-6 years. I am not against customer support, or otherwise wearing multiple hats.

Developed a small online business from the ground up in the way of product development, prototypes, sales, E-Commerce, marketing, customer care, SEO, etc. Everything required of a small manufacturing business with self driven marketing, improvement, and development whilst attending online college.
