    Thumbs up Great work ethic, and a very well spoken people person!

    My name is James Richkus. I am 21 years old, and a desire to get started in the field. Though I am an inexperienced, up and coming technician, I have a great work ethic and desire to accomplish any task put at hand. I am still in school three nights a week to learn the field. I am very quick to pick up on anything being taught to me. Because I do not know a lot, I expect my pay to reflect that. I do not expect to start off making a lot. I will make a great helper/apprentice and eventually a stand alone tech you can send to do whatever you need done. I have all my hand tools and the only ones I do not have are the big dollar ones companies generally provide you with. I am located in Chicago and have reliable transportation and a truck to haul anything needed to be hauled.

    Please e-mail me at Jrobert826@gmail.com
    Or call or text at any time at 708-785-6233

    E-mail me and I will send you my resume and work history.

    I find your outdated frame of mind refreshing...it will take you far. Struggle without complaint, earn your keep, stay humble, and some day you can provide for others unwilling to try.

    Sounds like you're making your own good luck.

    I know my generation sucks.. I am afraid for the future but I plan on prospering off these folks who think everything will be handed to them... I've been involved in trades since I was young..my father was always working on a house or a car... I was always involved not like most my age who will not help their parents without being paid.. he's a tile setter I've been able to make cuts on a wet saw since I've been seven.. my generation is blind and know s nothing about real work and earning what you have and what it takes to get somewhere in life

    Yeah, back in my day....GMM (grinding my molars). Thanks for not being a brown noser.

    The competition isn't the same, but neither is the quality of the opportunities, so things have tended to even out. You still need to bring some game.
