To Trump: Here are some great high paying manufacturing jobs!

It would be great if coal mining engineers apply and get hired by Tesla.

Hmm, leave Southern California for Sparks, NV. Decision, decision.

Yes, Hmmm. hours of endless traffic jams, smog, and overpriced housing, or living where one can be at great ski resorts in 30 minutes, mountainbike out your back door, and explore public lands um, now. Have fun down there!

Yes, public lands soon to be auctioned off in rigged bids to the lowest bidders so the can be covered with franking rigs and strip mines with no pollution controls or clean up!

Plus you can just wander out into the desert and never be heard from again. Of course you can do that in CA too, but you would have to drive out to the desert first, and someone would see you or your car.

“Living where one can be at great ski resorts in 30 minutes”

Hmm… Which one? Northstar? Not really. Squaw/Alpine, yes, that is nice but certainly more than 30 minutes away. Heavenly? Decent, but more than 30 minutes away.

But, hey, Bunny Ranch is less than 30 minutes away!

We got like 4 ski resort within 35 miles from work and I live less than 20 miles from the beach. Today was 65 degree. I guess millions are missing out.

I wonder what the Controls Engineering positions pay.

Enough to keep you in kibbles & bits for a life time.

$105,061 + $12,500 stock bonus.

The real business opportunity is a coffe shop/microbrewery. I am still amazed at how there seems to be no limit to the number of breweries our town can support. It would probably work very well in Sparks.

Every engineering position at the Fremont site received about 100 applications per job. As an applicant, I found that discouraging. I would also need to relocate a great distance, and I’m sure they favor local talent.

‘these jobs will challenge you “every single day”’ = only young people without families should apply.

Tesla’s contract with the State of Nevada does require them to give preference to Nevada residents seeking jobs.

So anyone serious about applying for one of these jobs should consider at least a temporary move to Nevada, to establish residency there before applying.
