Employ this man.

Pictured below is James Mulvihill. It is a coincidence of no consequence that he is in a shoe shop. But he does require your full attention.

You see, James is a talented Design Engineer with many patents to his credit. He has worked in and around the Detroit area since birth assisting in the logical creation and manufacture of automobile components. When he is not working his problem-solving brain continues to ponder the properties and manipulation of material. I should know. I was there when James read aloud his first poem in 2nd grade about a woman, Penelope, and her insatiable appetite for donuts. Lego and Lincoln Logs and, then, plastic model kits were the order of the day. The devising of new and upgrade components for bicycles was the scaled, rational step towards a degree from Western University/Kalamazoo, MI. As I mentioned before James has been employed by numerous suppliers to the industry. To name a few; JCI, Lear and Alcoa. Times are tough. Numbers have been trimmed from the work force. But you see, James is not a number.. he is, rather, a quality. A quality of the unique human element that grows in a manufacturing society such as Detroit. Please support your local, organic, creative people. And, please, employ this man. Thank you.

    James is a rare talent. Not only is he a fountain of immeasurable knowledge, he’s probably one of the nicest guys in the Western hemisphere.

    And not to mention he knows just about as much about 1980’s music as I do.

    Hey there,

    We just started a new blog, While We Wait, which is dedicated to telling the stories of unemployed or recently rehired people. Check out recessionstories.wordpress.com if you’re interested in submitting. We’d love to hear from you, or from James!
