Welcome home! Sadly, I don't know of anything to say off the top of my head, but is there not some sort of trade union around here to which you could apply?

Thanks for the Reply and welcome home. Totally embraced this area never leaving even if i have to wash stinkin dishes for a living. Fortunatly staying with friends gives me free range on locations to find employment. I've been here for a week and just getting a littly antsy not used to being without a job for extended periods! But it seems networking has always been the best way to find good employment.

Great news!! Got picked up by an awesome company for more than I was asking for salary wise!! Seems that no matter where you go there is no shortage of idiots trying to aquire skilled trade jobs and when a company test your competancy and finds out your actually capable of doing what you say, they end up throwing money at you!! BIG SHOUT OUT to Sea-Tac area, Thanks for the warm embrace!!
