    Lightbulb Employment opportunities: WNY community

    I am starting this thread for anyone on the Wired New York forums who is currently seeking employment: or has an employment opportunity to offer other Members of the WNY community.

    To start things off I will provide my own listing: hopefully other members will post here also to get the word out on any type of employment opportunity.

    I am currently seeking a part-time apprentice/helper for carpentry and painting: working exclusively in NYC residential
    Interiors. Pay starts at $11.00 per. hour: tools & training will be provided. Work is currently only on a part-time, as-needed basis.

    Anyone interested can send me a PM message here in the Wired New York forum message center.

    Thanks. I hope this can be useful to others as well. I am currently paying ad fees to & for posting 'help wanted' opportunities : this is another - less costly - option.

    If anyone knows of a good fit for this part time job: please PM me on the Wired New York message center.

    I know this thread has sat dormant for a while but I thought I'd give it a shot. --

    I'm a 4th year Architecture student at Pratt, just settled in an apartment in Brooklyn for the summer and looking for work. While I'm preferably looking for an architectural internship for the summer, I'm gladly looking at other options and jobs. If you have, or know someone looking to hire I'd truly appreciate it if you could pass my information along, or reach me directly by PM or email at:

    And I encourage everyone to have a look at my portfolio and website below, which shows a little bit of what I've been doing.

    I've been reading and following these forums here for a long time, so I thought this would be a good place to reach out for this kind of thing.
    Thank you, and I really appreciate the time, not to mention the comments and opinions on this site.


    Link to my website, which also has my resume, and a link to my portfolio.

    Hey J whatta say - glad I spotted your post today. I am a former 'designer' turned 'builder' - specializing in residential interiors in Manhattan condo apartments. If you are interested in working as a 'helper' at one of my job sites that would be a great opportunity for both of us: you can earn and learn, and I can get a helper who is educated and interested in the field. Totally win-win IMHO. Please PM me if interested or email me at

    Hope to hear from you and bye for now.
