My son needs a job

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.......

Thank you for your time.

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.
