Amber,
Some typical questions to help you in your quest...

City and State?
Can the job be filled by someone working remotely?

San Francisco, CA and this position cannot be done remotely, unfortunately. I like working from home, as well, but this needs to be done onsite :)

I took the time to read the requirements. I don't see anything listed that would require someone to be on-site. I am currently working in Afghanistan, supporting nearly 20 SQL Server production systems dispersed over a wide geographical area. Working with development teams located in geographically dispersed locations in the United States (FL,VA,NY,CO,PA). There are are only two reasons that really come to play when you here that work must be done on-site: Management distrusts it employees to work effectively remotely, or you are working on Classified Government systems.

With the advances in technologies today, companies are rejecting highly skilled individuals that would be more than able to do the work required but aren't willing to relocate to certain areas of the country for various reasons.

Other than the SSRS requirement, I have the skills and experience needed for this position. I just have no desire to live in San Francisco, CA.

Thanks for taking the time to read the requirements. Unfortunately, onsite work is a requirement from our client. If you want to send me your resume (Amber.Richard@staffmark.com), I can do my best to persuade them to bring someone on remotely because their background is so perfect. The least I can do is try.

San Francisco, California is amazing though, just as a side note I went to school in SF and I just love it!

If Lynn needs to be vouched for as to his skills, I know there are a couple of dozen folks that have been following him and working with him on these fine forums for years, including myself. It will be difficult to find someone on the street that is better than he is.

Thanks for the input, Jeff! I could certainly put extra emphasis on the fact that Lynn is well-respected by his peers in the SQL community.

I just need a resume, at least, to pitch.
