I received an email from a gentleman in the Philippines named Jerry Caunca who is looking for work as a Barista.
(paraphrase)…I‘m from the Philippines. I want to go to Canada or the United States. I have been a coffee barista for 5 years here in the Philippines.
His resume is quite interesting. He has been a barista (coffee professional is probably more accurate. He has some background in roasting as well.) for a few years, and has been in the service industry for his entire career. He seems to enjoy serving and interacting with people.
Any roaster and/or retailer looking to take on some fresh talent should probably take a look at his resume and contact him. His phone number is in his resume.

I got an email on Friday from Tyler Welch who is looking for work in the Austin area.

On that note, I seem to have a long list of old job listings from retailers. If you have ever asked us to post a job opening for you, PLEASE check the Jobs listing to see if yours is still up. From now on, they will be valid for only 30 days unless otherwise specified.
Some have been up for a year! That’s just too long, folks. I understand the need to funnel in some interest, and I like to do what I can to help the TX coffee industry, but this isn’t Craigslist.
But.. if you ARE looking for employees or if you are looking for work, anyone is welcome to use TX-Coffee.com as a resource to get the news out. TX-Coffee.com exists for the community, and as such, anyone involved should feel free to ask for something to be posted if they think it will be of benefit.
In addition, feel free to post on your own in the tx-coffee.com forums.

I received an email from Jess at Austin Roasting Company yesterday asking if I knew anyone who would be interested in being a sales representative. I don’t personally, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any TX-Coffee readers who wouldn’t be.
I’m going to put a post on Craigslist this week for a Sales Rep but thought I would check and see if you know anyone that might be interested.
Would be in and around Austin, it’s commission only to start, but could be good part time gig for someone who might be interested in the coffee business.

Matt Miletto of Bellissimo Coffee InfoGroup, and the American Barista and Coffee School (ABC’s) has put together a brilliant community site for the exchange of ideas, education, and, get this, baristas!
This gives the individual barista a way to travel the world in order to experience new concepts in great coffee by working as an “exchange barista” (like an exchange student) at another cafe. Travel is not required to be a member, and traveling internationally is certainly up to you.
I’m a member!
And if you are a barista, shop-owner, or a roaster or consultant(like me!), you can join in on the fun. Think of it as a Myspace… just for the coffee industry. Brilliant!
If you work in the coffee business, YOU NEED TO JOIN THIS SITE!
I received an email this morning from Cups & Cones in Austin to let everyone know that they are now hiring.
Cups & Cones, a newly opened coffee and ice cream cafe in Austin, TX, is hiring baristas. The store is located across from the entrance to the UT Golf Club in the Shops at Steiner Ranch.
They are using Blue Bell ice-cream and coffee from Texas Coffee Traders (home of 2007 SCRBC finalist Ron deYoung).
They opened in September of this year, according to their website.
