So, we are hiring my replacement: http://www.grida.no/...es.aspx?id=3185

GRID-Arendal, with its specialization in translating complex environmental and socio-economic information into understandable, visual formats for decision makers and the general public, is seeking a multi-talented Environmental Cartographer. The ideal candidate has a broad knowledge of current environmental issues, as strong sense of how to synthesize different types of information into clear and easily readable maps and graphics, has GIS experience and is familiar with up-to-date communication tools and technology. This position requires the ability to thrive in a team environment, handle multiple tasks and meet critical deadlines.

That sounds like an interesting position; I would love to apply, however I do not have Illustrator experience. Good luck finding a replacement, it sounds like a great opportunity, so I am sure you won't have any problems!

Mappy, be bold and honest and apply anyways - if you are interested. I don't know how the process is going, but I think they will have a hard time replacing me - I was almost too multirole... They might need to pick someone that does not necessarily have all the requirements.

Hi Frax

Do they have some position for a freelancer? I have almost all the skills, not to your skill levels. I know quite a bit of software packs; the GIS (Mapinfo and ArcGIS), Vector Drawing and Image software (Microstation, Illustrator, Freehand, Photoshop) and some generic software like Global Mapper, Maprenderer 3D. I have data export import skills where I can utilize diverse data in map making process. I have built a small website, all by myself, for displaying some of the skills and maps that I have done as freelancer. You may like to see that at http://www.mapsandlocations.com.

Do I have a chance of getting some freelance work in a sustained manner rather than a job? I really do not intend leaving India. If you want I will gladly take on a pilot project too. I can also work as a telecommuter (or something similar). With the internet there are so many possibilities, do I have any chance??? Please do guide me.

Best..

Anu

Anu, I don't think so, there is already a network of freelancers - I am one. But feel free to offer your services to them - I don't work there anymore, since Nov 1st, so I can't answer or help you - see the contact information on the website.
