    Utica man, most union shops are closed down as far as new guys, if you have your oil techs certificate of competency, there is some shops on craigslist looking for techs for clean and tunes.

Does Peterson have placement?
    I just recently Graduated from Porter & Chester of Westborough MA, I am EPA universal and OSHA 10 certified, and have 4 years maintenance background.. The one thing that stinks about the school is they dont help place you in a job just help with resume!! Yea i think craigslist is a waste of time i have contacted over 12 hvac companys and not one response, and i contacted each over 2 time! So far to say some are scams to get info and such,
    I will still keep my eye out there looking for work!!

    Stop in about every 2 weeks or so bring coffee or food so they'er happy to se you ask if they have anything yet if not return in 2 weeks.
    One guy we hired did this every 2 weeks bringing in something small (cookies, cake coffee etc... we hire him because he show drive. Was a good hire. Right know your resumne is in a stack with other's put a name and face together.

    I don't care about your Houskekeeing duties IF ANY THING IT MAKES YOU SOUND LIKE A JANITOR. JMO

    List What you do with HVAC-R If you don't do it GO tell your boss you want to start doing as much as possible.

    Two lines Max for Kitchen.

    And lose the Housekeeing.

    Your Back ground is'nt bad for a new grad.
    Get the NATE in as goal and Join RSES those to Orginaztion will catch the eye.

    Your resume is killing
