I'm currently working as a temporary full-time employee for a company who has been a client of mine for almost 15 years. I'm
hoping to have it turn into a full-time permanent position, but, right now, they don't have a position in the company for
anyone to do what I do, basically custom application development in Office, automated templates and forms, training,
integration with other applications and databases, Access database development, etc. I'm a Microsoft Office Specialist -
Master Instructor as well as a VBA developer, and I think I have a lot to offer this company. However, I have to convince
them of that. So I'm trying to put together documentation that will help sell the value of having someone around who can do
this kind of work, one piece of which would be a potential job description. So, I'm looking for input from any of you who are
doing this type of work full-time, or even part-time if it is an actual position and not just something you do in addition to
your regular job because it's so much fun. If you have a job description, could you either post it (if you think others might
find it of value) or send it to me directly? Thanks!
If you've been through something similar and have suggestions
on how to approach the powers that be, I'd appreciate that input, too. And anything else you think might be helpful. This
company just topped 500 employees, with offices all over, and their one VB programmer doesn't really deal with Office at all.
Oh, and if you have any input on appropriate salary ranges, I'd appreciate having that information, too. This temporary
position started March 1, for just this month, and so I need to get something put together quickly.
