Searchers Academy, Sunday all day--boy I learned a lot!


??? Monday. Probably Track A


I don't know how to create all the fancy stuff like everyone else.


I'm from Placerville, CA and formerly from San Jose, CA and even earlier from Michigan.  


I just completed a gig as a Social Work SME (subject matter expert) for a large consulting firm. A few months ago, I couldn't even spell SME and "now I are one." Well, right now I'm on "vacation," the firm says, until the next need arises.


In the meantime, I'm again trying to figure out what I want to do when I grow up. I use the Internet a lot for research. What I research depends on what people hire me to do as a "Human Services Consultant." or an "InfoSleuth."


Over the last several years, most of my research has been a part of proposal writing. Off and on for 30 years, I've been a proposal/bid/grant writer. Of interest to some of y'all is that I've been the proposal writer for successful* library construction efforts(*of course efforts all included help from library staff and lots of other folks). Successes (all in CA) include new libraries for the City of Murrieta, San Leandro and Murrieta and the California Agricultural Workers' History Center at the Watsonville Public Library http://www.library.ca.gov/newsletter/2005/2005fall/endow.html


What I want to do is morph my research for proposals/grants into being paid for research in other kinds of ways. Any ideas?


Geez, I was trying to get this to show up in the Attendees section, but it doesn't seem to be anywhere. Well, if anyone sees this, email me at trudes@pacbell.net, if no other kind of way.
