My friend is a good QA guy and was laid off from Sony America awhile ago now. I figured I would post here if anyone needs a QA guy that really good. He is currently in school finishing his BA with a good grade point average in Business Administration. Please fell free to forward to anyone you might know. This includes head hunters, etc. Let me know if you need a WORD version and I can send that along. Below is a text version I pasted into this email. Any help from the list if greatly appreciated.
