I guess this isnt too specific to woodworking, though I am hoping to find a job in the woodworking field, but here it goes.
I am looking for a job, and the problem is that my resume isnt great, for the past few years I have been in college, and only been employed in the summer, and work independantly as a handyman, and building custom pieces in my shop during the winter…..All those gaps in official employment dont look very good. I know that if I got the opportunity to talk in person, I’d be hired ( I have been hired for every job I got an interview for), but nobody will talk to you unless they like the resume. If someone would let me, I’d work a day for free in their shop just to show them what I can do, of course that causes all kinds of insurance issues for them, so it probably wont happen.
I guess I am looking for advice from anyone who has been employed in a cabinet shop or similar location, or from a manager or owner at such a place.
By the way, I live north of Boston. if anyone has an opportunity for me in the area, or knows someone who does, I’d love to talk.
Thanks in advance.
