ObjectiveLead or Supervisory carpenter position
Functional summary I have been doing carpentry since 1993. My experience ranges from form and foundation work to putting the last shingle on the roof, and everything in between. Over the years my attention to detail has become one of my best attributes. I own all of my own tools, including shop type tools and certain specialty tools. I own a clean and professional looking work vehicle and have a spotless driving record. I feel I would be a great asset to your company. I am a self motivated worker with no need for supervision. I am a team player who is dedicated to the goals of the company and the people I work for. This economy is making it tough for me to find the right company which is the right fit for my goals. I am looking for a long term employment relationship with the right company. I have a strong, old school work ethic that I just dont see a lot of these days. I always show up early or on time and very rarely call out sick. If you are looking for someone who can get along with anyone, particularly the customer, please look no further. I am your man. I possess a 10 hour OSHA certification. I am also in the process of getting my CSL.
