I have been a general contractor, remodeling homes in the Berkeley area for 33 years. The Bay Area economy is bustling right now. Skilled carpenters are difficult to find. I cannot take on any more work until I find more workers. I hope that you might steer two of your top students in my direction, as I need two apprentice carpenters to work with my journeyman carpenters. I am offering a starting wage of $16/hr.
Thank you for your time,Chris Keith

My husband, Mark Springer, is a general contractor based in Berkeley with jobs in the East Bay & SF. He has too many jobs on his plate with more upcoming & not enough qualified people to work on them. Ideally, he would love to train a few people as apprentices for organizing his shop & then learn the necessary skills to move up. We do everything from demo, foundations, framing, carpentry, finish carpentry to plumbing, electrical, sheetrock & tiling. We do additions, remodels & new construction. We do it all but we need some good people who would really like to work with us & learn these skills.
It would be great if someone who wants to do field work also had computer skills to be an administrative assistant.
If you have any recommendations, we certainly would welcome them. We would start a shop apprentice at $12 – $15 an hour. Our carpenters are getting at least $29 an hour with some above that. We have others who are not carpenters who are getting $18 – $22.50 per hour. We are flexible & our employees pay reflects their skills.
I am including Mark’s website & a custom home website that he designed & built. You might find them interesting. It will give you a better idea of what he does & what he needs. He is an incredible craftsman and a wonderful boss & person.   Website =    –
