    Need help with getting into a new job

    Right as most of you know I am currently on suspension at work, and this can go on upto 6mnths, As I am really sick of my current job, I want a bash at something new, something I would enjoy.
    So I would like to have a go at window tiniting, How would I go about training for this, and getting in to this line of work any info or help would be much appreciated.

    I think one way you could go about it is to contact a cpl of tinting companies for 2 reasons

    1. The will be able to give u advice IF nothing else

    2. They might have jobs going

    Hope that helps.

    P.S. I am also looking for a new job coz mine is boring. Looking at sumat 2 do with cars or Plumbing, but comming up against a brick wall everywhere I turn coz I am too old to do Modern apprenticeships. NE1 got ne idea??

    Oh, Sorry to hijack ur thread Brett :roll:

    I want to get into the automotive industry as I have always wanted to from a youngster but never did as I chased the pounds notes, and never got content with a job.

    If you're getting paid for being suspended at work, why not ring up a couple places around your area, and offer to come down, for say, a few days, and help them out with stuff, watch them work, then start helping them, do a little work for free.... It's free training, and if you do attempt it and you do a good job, you may land one, or he may know someone who wants you, etc Good place to start!

    I'd ring around the local window tinting firms. If you have any experience of tinting they will be more than willing to take you on, as there seems to be a general shortage of people who can tint well.

    I got offered a job a few years back, from a firm I was getting tint film off. It doesn't pay well though

    There will be more IT jobs next year by the looks of things. In 2001 I had four contractors working for me at one point, in 2002 and 2003 I scraped just enough work for myself. Things have slowly picked up and as I mentioned here a while back I shall be taking someone on again in the new year (someone was supposed to email me their CV, forget who) and would love to have enough work by the summer to take a third person on again.
