Start in the Drywall Trade at a Higher Wage

Today’s article is geared towards those of you who are new to the drywall trade. Whether you are just starting out or have been in the business for a short length of time, it is my desire that everyone make as much money as he or she can in this profession.

It is with this in mind that I will attempt to impart some small portion of my accumulated knowledge in order to better prepare you for a career as a Drywall Repair near me.

Economic downturns can have a detrimental effect on the availability of certain types of jobs in the marketplace, but it has been my experience that if you maintain a relatively high level of proficiency you will remain a desirable commodity for most employers.

Therefore it is imperative that you learn as much as you can as rapidly as you can.

In order to shorten your learning curve as much as possible, you will need to acquire a large amount of information relative to your topic. And, since your topic is the drywall industry you’ve come to the right place. I would not expect you to think you will be able to learn every facet of this business simply by reading a small amount of material relating to the subject. The very nature of the trade requires that you gain a certain level of hands on experience before you start to feel comfortable with the work. And as the work is at times somewhat repetitive it is surely a matter of practice makes perfect.

It would be presumptuous of me to think that I could cram 30 years of drywall experience in to a forum this size and do the material the justice it deserves. My aim in this short treatise is to give you several suggestions which should enable you to demand a higher wage as you begin your job search. These are more in line with human relation techniques as opposed to actual building techniques.

The drywall industry has proven over the years to be a fairly stable and relatively high paying profession for people seeking employment in the construction industry. And as the years go on the wages seem to be escalating fairly steadily. I can attest to this myself being a drywall contractor with as many as 40 employees working for my company, Galaxy Construction, Inc., at any given time.

So, when I tell you what I think an employer is looking for in a potential prospect, I am speaking from first hand experience, having done hundreds of interviews with new hires myself over the years. Granted, I tend to look for the exceptional person when interviewing, but I know from speaking with my colleagues in the business that they are just as selective. And take it from me, the criteria only get more demanding the tighter the market gets.

This is the reason it can be so difficult in times like these to compete with the guys who have a little bit of experience.

But I’m here to tell you friend, if you will believe in yourself half as much as I believe in you, you can step to the head of the line and get that job that you need to support your loved ones and begin to lead the live of abundance you deserve.

The first step is becoming a full time member of the free drywall solutions community and letting me show you everything you need to succeed in this field. With the resources at your disposal within these pages, and my tutelage, you could actually be running your own successful drywall business in an incredibly short period of time.

Of coarse this is such a large amount of content (30 years worth) and represents literally thousands of hours of work by my dedicated staff and I to put together, that the only option we had was to produce the best online courses available to the public regarding starting, running and enjoying your own profitable drywall business.

You’ll be able to find out how to take advantage of this once in a lifetime opportunity on our Products page. Unfortunately, this program is only for the extremely motivated among you who like me and my staff, are driven to succeed no matter what.

For the rest of you I will continue to be your mentor and guide on your continuing journey, and possibly at some point in the future we will work together on making your unspoken dreams of self employment a reality, but for now, allow me to take you under my wing and save you all the blood, sweat and tears that I shed in the acquisition of my large cache of knowledge. Consider yourselves my students.

The First Step

The first step most take when starting out is knowing someone in the business. Perhaps this might be a brother in law, an uncle, or a close friend. However you find your first drywall job it is usually recommended by someone who is already in the trade. This actually speaks volumes about the desirability of obtaining employment in this field as it has been my experience that it comes with such a high endorsement from those already in the business.

So when you go to the office you may have a leg up on the competition because someone you know already works there and hopefully has a good reputation within the company.

Or perhaps you found an ad in the classifieds under help wanted and you’re going in blind. For me this was always preferable, because I could speak to my own strengths and perceived benefits to the company without the excess baggage of having someone already on the inside generating preconceived notions about me one way or the other.

In either case you want to make the best impression possible and, take it from me, owners and H.R people are busy so you don’t have very long to do it.

The Interview

The interview should start on you’re initiative with a genuinely warm smile, and a firm handshake. When I shake someone’s hand and it seems like I was just handed a dead fish, unless I need somebody today to take care of an emergency situation, my decision has already been made and I probably won’t hear anything else you have to say. Shortly you will be shown the door and I’ll be speaking to the next applicant.

I know this sounds harsh, but you may as well find out now that there is a big difference between the drywall business and an afternoon tea party. If you don’t have enough self confidence to look me in the eye, introduce yourself and give me a firm handshake, how can you expect me to take a chance on you around my customers? Whenever you are on the job you are representing my company and our values and one of our core values is self confidence. You either have it or you don’t. Luckily for you I intend to spend a great deal of time on free drywall building people’s character. This is the one attribute that has made me more money than anything else I have done.
