The Washington Group Albericci Joint Venture - Carpenter Resume Example

Dylan Allen
Professional Summary

I am sending you this note to express my hopes on your possible thoughts of my employment with you.

I have been a journeyman carpenter for the last twenty five years, during this time I have done and seen a lot of things. One thing I have learned is that when you are responsible for your own actions it makes the group as a whole look better.

I have had a well rounded carrier, consisting of everything from heavy road construction: bridges, piers, dry land bridges, box culverts, toll plazas, state and private road work. I was a foreman for several companies along the way. Responsible for time keeping, expenses, and fuel for machinery as well as heavy equipment, purchasing material and creating build list, form list, and layout of thousands of feet of concrete for elevation as well as for correct location.

I have worked for a company building refrigerated warehousing: we were a general contractor specializing in metal skinned wall panels with high density foam core. all of the framed openings for doors were hollow metal frames with steel doors. I was also responsible for all door hardware and seals. I was a foreman for this company for three years, worked closely with other trades to create schedules and with my men to keep the job running as smoothly as possible.

I have worked for general contractors doing remolding: new kitchens, bathrooms, room additions, roofing, foundations, have built several homes from the ground up. I was involved in several trim projects ranging from hand built paneled library walls to solid maple baseboard, chair rail, and crown moldings. I have installed cabinets of various types from box cabinets to high-end built in place units.

I have worked for several contractors in the Southern Illinois area such as River City Construction, I have also worked for Everared and Strang at the Rend Lake College Campus. My most recent employer was The Washington Group Albericci, the project was the Olmsted Lock and Dam on the Ohio River. I worked on that project for three years, during which I was a foreman for a year. I was responsible for daily, weekly, and monthly schedules, material orders to keep men productive, as well as safety meetings, on site safety stand down meetings and morning focus. This was a Army Corps. job, which only added to its element of difficulty.

In closing is a small list of my qualifications: concrete work, drywall, trim, wood and metal doors and frames. hardware, cabinetry, layout, metal studs, tilt up wall panels, home building, roofing, organization, mobilization, paper work, taking orders, safety.

As a small side note: I am a 45 year old, devoted husband with two teenagers, my main focus is to provide for them a future we can all be proud of. I am also a non-tobacco user and a union certified drug free employee. My qualifications are something I hold very dear to myself and applied to no job to big or to small equally, anything worth doing is worth doing right.
