I have to admit I am skeptical about any talk of a downturn. Sure I see the news, and the figures, and I am sure that there are some people who are feeling the pinch on their housing loans ... and that some financial institutions are hurting under the weight of poor lending practices. But honestly, everywhere I look I see companies that cannot find the talented maintenance and reliability people that they need. I also publish a job board called The Brilliant Career.com. And let me tell you, there is no lack of opportunities out in the big wide world for maintenance and reliability professionals! Here are some examples of roles that were posted there recently: Maintenance Planner / Scheduler
