Yawning Man posted a topic in Chill SpaceHello Sabbers Gee it's been a while. Haven't posted in forever but have been lurking somewhat. I apologise that it's also out of self serving interest that i'm back. For the past 5 years i've been working in Community Services, namely with the homeless and i'm starting to feel a bit burnt out. I started a new role last year back in August and since then my interest in this industry has plummeted. It's got to the point now where i'm on stress leave (also due to a heap of shit at home) and contemplating a career change. I love the practicality of carpentry and have been researching into the business quite a bit and would like to get feel for the day to day stuff. Just how physical it is, if i have an aptitude for it, if I come home likely what i have done that day etc. So,i'm putting some feelers out to see if there are any chippies here (that are near me, bit of a stretch I know) that might want to put me on for a day or two so I can get a sense if it's for me. I want to be sure about this before I commit to an apprenticeship and lower wages for 3-4 years. Alternatively maybe you guys know of someone who might be open to the idea. Or any tradies within other professions that work close to chippies and have some insight on the industry? Anyway, it's great to see the forums are still being utilised and have a community around them. Sighting lots of old names from when i was much more active which it cool. Hope you're all well and the gardens looking sweet! YM
