    Default Hows this for a dream job?

    Recently, I got into a program through my school that helps kids find jobs that they are intrested in. So I went and talked to them and within 3 days, they found a job that they knew I would be intrested in. I told them that I was really intrested in building/repairing guitars and graphic design. So they called me and they said that they had a interview lined up for me at a local guitar store. I think that was the first time that Ive actually be EXCITED about a job interview. So I go down to the store and I start talkin to the manager and I tell him that I do all my own repairs etc... and he seemed pretty impressed with it. My job coach went with me to the interview and told him that just for right now its an evaluation for 20 hours without pay but if things work out nicely, it could turn into a full time job. He told me that I start on tuesday and that I would pretty much be doing little things like cleaing necks and bodies, making sure they are displayed nicely and just stuff like that. Hes also gunn have me watch some of the more experienced repair dudes and see how things work there. Nothing too big at first but I imagine that IF this turns into a full time job, im gunna be doing nothing but repair work which is absolute heaven for me.

    Yeah, im kinda nervous about it but its an excited because I get to be around guitars all the time now

    Congrats Thai! There is a school in Michigan that you can go to for a very intense course in building guitars...all types of guitars. It is a few weeks long and you get all of the credentials. If you are interested, P.M. me and I will send you some more info. It is well worth it if you really want your dream job. I know a couple of people that have been through it and they are making some good cash for early 20 year olds. These dudes are making a name for themselves even in the low-populated area that I am from...
    It's something that I am considering if I can get enough time away.
    Just go for it!
