After moving back to the lower 48, I have bought an RV and have been living on the road.

Another big holiday weekend coming up. I plan on hitting the road for about a week. Heading toward New Mexico. I am sure it will be cooler than here, where it is too hot to golf. Looking forward to sitting behind the wheel of a car rather than staring a computer all day. I leave Friday morning.
But I will continue to search job listings as I travel. I search listings 24 hours old or less, and I look everyday at listings in 15 states. Normally there are between 1000 and 1200 listings. I search using various search words, but I till have to sift through a lot of CRAP. I think the employers use more hot words than what applies, so more people see the listing.
So out of 1100 listings yesterday I see a job in DUTCH. Six years ago it may have looked interesting. The biggest processor in Dutch, Unisea, is looking for an inventory manager. At the time I was looking for listings in Arizona. There is the listing, and it says RELOCATE TO DUTCH HARBOR. Why is the listing in Arizona listings? I saw it listed in other state listings too. Another game the employers play. Right now I am not looking for work in Alaska.
I did get a call about an application I sent in for a job in San Antonio, TX. I like that area. Drive a half hour west and the trees stop and it is wild west Texas. The caller was with a company doing the hiring for the ultimate employer. They liked hearing about the job experience I had in Dutch.
Will report from THE ROAD.
