Does anyone know of any companies hiring Matlab / Simulink developers in the Twin Cities metro area (Minneapolis/St.Paul and suburbs), Minnesota (MN)?: I am a "world-class" expert at Matlab. I also know C/C++, C#, GUI interfaces. My e-mail address is josephamarks@yahoo.com. Resume' and references available upon request.

I am a "world-class" expert at Matlab.

You definately have the attitude. Do you have the file exchange submissions to back it up?

I have a PhD in Electrical Engineering to back it up. All my research for my PhD and my plan B Master's as well, was done in Matlab.

I'm usually NOT allowed to post the work I do to the file exchange, since when I work for an employer they own the copyright to everything that I do.

I do have 15 years of software engineering experience, AFTER obtaining my PhD.

Much of this is in Matlab.

Mathworks has invited me to apply for jobs, but I declined as I live in Minneapolis, and did not want to relocate to MA or MI.

Sorry if I appear to have an "attitude" -- as you may know, it is difficult to be modest when seeking for (or applying to) a job!

All this tells us that you have experience in Matlab. Unfortunately, it does
not give us anything to go on by which we might evaluate whether you are
indeed a "world-class expert" in Matlab. Do you have books, postings, Matlab
Contest successes that we might look at?

Your resume does indicate jobs with Matlab, but oddly your summary says:

"OBJECTIVE: A position utilizing my experience in software development,
analysis, algorithm design, and software engineering skills. This includes
very strong C, C++, Object Oriented Analysis & Design (OOA & OOD) and C#
programming, and some Visual Basic, DSP, Matlab, and other computer languages.
I also have used Simulink and other simulation programs. I have extensive data
acquisition and analysis experience as well."

If you are a "world-class expert" at Matlab, but your work with it only rates
at the "some" level, then would that make you a Galaxy-class expert at your
"very strong" skills in C, C++, OOA & OOD, and C# ??

17 years programming and teaching Matlab at a university? The odd thing about
universities in USA and Canada is that unless research is being done under
contract with specific confidentiality agreements, the author retains the
rights to publish even if the work was funded through a grant.

That would be true, if I worked at a university.

Most of my work since leaving Grad school has been for private industry. Once in a while they'll let you publish, but the overwhelming amount of the time they do NOT want you to.

My resume' is designed to reflect the work that I've been doing in the Twin Cities job market.

With all due respect, I'm hoping for more helpful responses to my post, such as jobs that are *actually* available in the Twin Cities. I have skills (perhaps it would be better not to put adjectives in front of them) in Matlab, C++, C#, C and other software / firmware development languages.

THANKS!

I agree with your comments about modesty.
Here's a ditty that was written more than 100 years ago by Gilbert and
Sullivan in their operetta Ruddigore:

If you wish in this world to advance;
Your merits you're bound to enhance;
You must stir it and stump it,
And play your own trumpet.
Or trust me, you haven't a chance!
