Fantastic. A whole two weeks work. Wait while I resign my job in order to take you up on this wonderful opportunity.

You should contract this out to a reputable consultancy company instead of doing it on the cheap.

If you think that *anyone* will be able to give you anything in two weeks, starting from scratch, then you will be sorely dissapointed.

You'll not get a lot of answers from your posts here.

superior etc is a staffing firm (check the web site). Heaven only knows what company actually wants the work done.

Still, for the right person, it might make a nice income pick-me-up for the holidays.

Can you get a 2 week license for CFX?

Re: 2-Week Contract (CFD Engineer) - Buffalo, NY
Interesting question.

I just assumed that CFX was specified because the company needing the work had a license for that particular code. Maybe not a good assumption ...

Back when I took the CFX training in Pittsburgh (maybe 15 years ago?), you could 'buy' one day of time, including an analyst from the local staff and a dedicated work station, for $1500. Wonder if they still have the service - and at what cost?

All times are GMT -4. The time now is 07:59.
