I wish you well Rio but many people are wondering were the woodworking jobs are. You might run an add in woodshopnews or finewoodworking.

I can only speak for this area…..............and its a crap shoot as some shaps are very busy and others are dead.

being fresh out of school and having been there myself (about 30 years ago)....it’s tougher to find work in the “fine furniture/cabinet” shops

You can take a look at this and it’ll give you an idea of how the woodworking industry is right now. Notice the difference in jobs available and “seeking employment”

I would recommend that you network…go to places that perspective employers will be…like industry shows and seminars….talk to folks…thats the best place in the world to see what is in demand…and of course use the internet.

I know a kid that started at Rio Grande this semester. He worked with me and my brother up in the Centerburg/Mt. Vernon area. Do you have any contact with the freshmen? His name is Isaac Chester.
