Summary

My name is JessicaClaireI am a good hard and fast worker. I am reliable dependable and honest employee. I’m what you call a company man because the way I look at it is the more money I can make the company or the more I save the company means more money I can get paid. So I work hard fast but I also believe in Quality work. I have about 12 years experience in welding and I have done it all shop work and fieldwork. There’s always room for improvement but I believe that if I’m hired you won’t be disappointed.I’m a certified welder I have been certified for forklift I took Osher classes I took safety classes I’ve passed two welding test one and 2008 and one in 2022 about a few months ago. I have passed x-ray test on the field and in the shop. I have used just about all the heavy machinery there is in a fabrication or metal shop, torch plasma cutter…..,.I have even done ornamental work and welded aluminum and tin steel. I have worked with Overhead shop cranes and field cranes. I’ve operated boom lifts scissor lifts and even boom trucks installing handrails and structural steel. I built trailers handrails buildings and other things as well. I read and understand blueprints and I understand angles and degrees. I have only been fired from one job in my life that was when I was 18 still young I have grown up since then lol every job I’ve ever had I’ve always progressed in. Like I said before I don’t claim to know it all and there’s always room for improvement but I’m a fast learner and easy-going guy and a team player who doesn’t mind If someone has a better plan. I will be to work on time and every day you can Count on me I do have a little bit of a background that’s not good but I am not the same person and I’m working towards being a better person every day so if you believe people can change give me a shot and I promise you you won’t regret it. When I work for East Coast ornamental welding I even had My own truck and was the lead man of that truck. I really am a employee that is hard to find nowadays. They just don’t make them like me anymore lol well if you took the time to actually read this and still don’t hire me thanks anyways for taking the time to see what I had to say I hope to hear from someone soon thanks and God bless you!!!
