Hi Dale! I am alum of your welding program of about 12 years ago. I went on to an engineering degree at Berkeley and am now running a design and fabrication business. I am in need of some eager hands to help at the studio. below is a description and wish list
of skills needed. most likely one person wont be able to embody all of these skills. But I think that there are likely people attending your class who would be a good fit for our shop.
Do you have advice as to How can I go about getting the word out? Should I come down and post fliers? Talk to the students?
Any advice you might have would be appreciated.
