Hi Mary, welcome to mrW!
Check out the "Job Site" section. Job opportunities are posted there.
I'm a pipefitter and plumber in Las Vegas. Saw Mike Rowe on Capitol Hill and came by, saw the forum and signed up. I started out a college guy on an academic scholarship but eventually came to find myself spending more time in Home Depot and Lowes than I was spending in Barnes and Noble or Borders. A major change for me, a monster reader in the neighborhood of 200 books a year at the peak. So I joined what is essentially the family trade. My grandfather on my mom's side was a welder in the Plumbers and Pipefitters here, and a bunch of my cousins and a friends are still. I love the work; the immediacy and presence of work physically there. That office stuff of moving paper from one side of your desk to the other didn't ever seem like work. Didn't seem very satisfying either.
I posted an album of some pictures I've taken at work in the last couple of years. http://www.mikeroweworks.com/forums/...hp?albumid=333
If one of the mod could let me in the trade related forum sections, that'd be cool. Thanks.

I had trouble opening the link earlier, but it worked now.
