Objective

My current objective is to obtain a new position within my automotive career that would be more beneficial to my life. I am currently engaged and will be marrying this September. I want to have a very reliable, more meaningful, and more competitive paying employment to support myself and my future wife with. I am not an ordinary man. I come from a family with high standards and expectations. We believe a man should still "work to earn his dollar". I am a very hardworking employee, I spend many extra hours helping out, I am always dependable, never on time because I'm always early, and I am extremely trustworthy. I tend to lead any chance I get. Wheather it's to teach a new employee or to get the regular coworkers motivated and moving. In college I studied to be an automotive painter but I have yet to find an opening in that field. So I have been working as a vehicle detailer. I have not lost my skill of painting though. I have been doing painting jobs on the side. I do not believe experience has anything to do with how long someone has been painting. Someone could be painting vehicles for 10 years and still not as good as someone who has only been doing it for 5. I believe a good painter is born with the talent and not taught. I am hoping one day to find the dream job I have been looking for. It's always easier to be sucessful with a career you are passionate about.
