My son needs a job

Postby The Annoyed Man » Thu Jan 28, 2016 11:17 am

My son is looking for work, and is facing a deadline to find a job before his second child is born in April, due on 4/2. He is specifically looking for a job as a machinist at this time, but I think he would be happy at this point to get any related job that provides him with a steady income that matches his skill set so that his wife will be able to be a stay at home mom. They own their own home, and he also has a precious 21 month old daughter, so he is a stable person. He is a recent graduate of a machinist school, which is why his recent employment history ends in September 2015. He was a full time student for a while there.

Here is his job history information from his resume below, and if anyone wants his contact information, PM me and I'll be happy to provide it. He lives in North Richland Hills, and with an expectant wife, any job he can get would have to be within a reasonable commuting distance from there.......

It goes without saying that I am extremely proud of my son and am therefore biased, but truthfully, you will hire no more dedicated worker to furthering your company's goals. Those members of this forum who have met him, know him to be extremely intelligent and committed to excellence in everything he undertakes.

Again, if you want his personal contact information, or would like a copy of his résumé, please PM me and I'll get that to you ASAP.

Hey TAM I'm sure he may have already done so, but make sure he is on Linkedin, and that his resume is posted on all of the job boards, Monster, Career Builder etc. That helped me more than anything during my last job transition.

I wish him luck it sounds like he has plenty of training and experience.

Suggest adding machinist education info to the top of his resume.
