I'm on an unrelated forum about off-road motorsports and came across this post in an employment forum. I guess I don't want to trash this guys thread about him looking for work, but this just gets me when people make claims like this. I also happen to know for a fact that this particular person is not a very skilled photographer and just recently purchased their first dslr, a Canon Rebel. Am I out of line being angry about this? "Hey all, many know me, some don't. My name is Doug and I'm a semi-employed guy trying to feed the family and pay bills. The reason for this post is to try to get more side work in the general area of Phoenix, AZ. My part-time job won't pay all the bills and after applying to hundreds of jobs over the past 4 months I am feeling the crunch of this bad economy. So I'm looking for side jobs. I have been doing many side jobs lately for GD.com members and all that I have worked for have seemed to have thought I did a great job at a fair price. I hope that lends me some credibility. What can I do you ask? My specialty is turning wrenches. I can do routine service, repairs, or assembly on your buggy, quad, bike, UTV, car, truck, motorhome, tractor, lawn mower, weed eater, etc. If it has moving parts I can service or repair it. When I worked for LA County I worked on water lines, both steel, PVC, and others, from one inch diameter to 15 inch. I worked on pumps, conveyor belts, massive gear drives, etc. I don't do welding but if you need welding I can refer you to someone that will give you a great deal as well. Aside from vehicles I can and am happy to do many other jobs/tasks. I have over six years of experience as a professional photographer. I will take photos of anything you want (that is legal ) and do it just as well as any other pro, but at a fraction of the cost. As an example my sister hired a "professional wedding photographer" for her wedding and my photos were WAY better than his. Not bragging, just saying I know how to take photos and I CARE. If you have a wedding or other special event coming up, let me give you the best photos you could imagine for a very fair price! I'm also available for dune photo shoots, something I have a lot of experience in. If you want that "perfect" shot of you in the dunes to hang on your wall, I'm your man. I also went to school for three years training to be a residential electrician. So while I am not currently a licensed electrician, I certainly know my stuff. Honestly though, I am seriously willing to do anything in this economy. Need your RV waxed? I'll do it. Need an acre of land cleared of brush? No problem. I can wash your car, wash your dog , dig a ditch, pour concrete, trim trees, paint walls, do framing, do drywall, do roofing, etc. I have experience in all of the above. Now the big question is, how much do I charge? I'm flexible on that, within reason. Most buggy or auto shops charge at least $75 an hour. I come to you and I charge $25 an hour. Residential electrical prices are per job, not per hour, please PM me for details. Other jobs are negotiable for price. Thanks for reading this and considering me for some side work."
