Hi everyone,
   I currently work for Progress Energy and we are looking for a
strong unix/linux individual that would like to work with middleware
technologies.  One important benefit that will not be listed on their
website is AWS (Alternate Work Schedule).  So basically how this works
is that you typically work a 9 hour day monday through thursday.
Every other friday you are off and the Fridays that you do work you
only work 8 hours.  36 hours (with friday off) and 44 hours (the week
that you work on Friday).  One other important note is that this is a
production support role with a 24/7 on-call rotation every 6 weeks.
If your interested read the below job posting from the
progress-energy.com website and apply.  The website that handles your
job application will force you to copy and paste your resume so plain
text will work better.  Let me know if you have any questions and or
concerns.  Oh and to make it easy to find the Job# is 081241 and
search for IT Analyst.
