    I am looking for employment in the taxidermy field. I have attended central texas school of taxidermy so i have some skills to offer and i am wanting to continue to build upon the skills i do have. I understand that i may have to start at the bottom and work my way up and i am more then willing to do so. I am also willing to relocate to a new location to move forth with taxidermy. If anyone is interested please contact me either through this post or by email at [email protected] or by phone at (830) 928-9231 if no answer by phone please leave a message as i currently work 12 hr days at me job and cant always answer but i will return the call as soon as i can.

    Thanks

    George

    Stick with your day job! Why work for someone else if you have skills.

    Thanks for your input Brad Jones. If you notice I put I have some skills and i want to continue building upon the skills i do have I know that you cant replace expierence and I will gladly work for someone if thats what it takes to gain expierence I will not open a shop until i feel more than comfortable in all aspects of taxidermy. I have put alot into this and I am not going to set myself up to fail. So there are reasons behind why i want to work under someone.

    george, i have been exactly where you are at!! 4 years ago i did the exact thing you are talking about. I relocated to work for a taxidermy studio. I had some skills, not many but i had a little...in fact I had more knowledge than I did experience....i worked for 3 months at that studio. I enjoyed the work and I enjoyed working for the gentleman I worked for. The most important thing I took away from that experience is this "dont be scared, just dive in" My whole deal was that I thought I needed technical training and guidence...nope, all I needed was someone to tell me....JUST DO IT....I dont have years and years of experience like most on here, and there are critters that people ask me to do that Ive never done before but it all comes in time..

    If your willing to work hard, be patient, and stick with it.....you're not setting yourself up to fail!! my thought process was exactly like yours until that experience....
