"I am open to anything. I have been sending out my CV but I haven't heard much back. All through school, I enjoyed working with my hands. I like being out in the open, doing work instead of being stuck in an office.

"If there's a problem, you have to figure out what it is and how to deal with it, then fix it. I really enjoy that part. I am a good team player but I also can lead a team.

"I always put my opinion forward if it is necessary, but also know when to keep quiet and listen to others. I can get along with anyone.

"I am very enthusiastic and just want to get the job done right and as quickly as possible.

"I can't wait to get into work. I will grab the chance as soon as it comes, no matter what type of work it is."
