To whom it may concern:

I recently graduated with a bachelors of science, but have decided that what I really want to become a carpenter instead of going into the field that I studied. I am have some carpentry experience but I am looking to become more proficient with my skills, and also diversify. I am willing to exchange general labor help for instruction in different carpentry skills, or assist in whatever form of carpentry or woodworking you are doing.

I am not looking for a full time apprenticeship, but more so once or twice a week arrangement, since I have another job now and could not possibly afford to live in Seattle as an unpaid apprentice. I am open to any of the different types of carpentry (framing, cabinet making, etc.). If you are looking for some extra help from someone who is reliable, detail oriented, has some experience, and is keen on doing a good job and learning, please send me a message.

so tell me ?

r u willing to move ?

or do you need a job next to your mother in law ?

settling for what what “you want”

is the worst excuse ever for failure as life rarely evolves around you : ))

the term “green” is the paradox of where you are at and where you will end

Unpaid apprentice? What is that? Contact your local carpenters union. (In the yellow pages) You can get into a paid apprenticeship program. This can be an excellent career decision. I am a retired Union Sheet Metal Worker and they also have an excellent apprenticeship program, as do most other trades.
