A summer job unlike any other Valley grad preps for painting gig
In between studying for exams at Western Washing-ton Uni-versity at Belling-ham, Mount Si High School graduate Thomas Taylor treks home each weekend to round up customers for his upcoming summer job.
Taylor, a 2007 Valley grad and current freshman at Western, is a branch manager for Student Works Painting. As a novice manager, hes in the preseason of his first summer painting houses.
The unique job gives him a chance to taste the real world while still in college.
For me, its definitely an experience thing, Taylor said. Its a resume builder.
Hes hiring students, preferably young people who are just leaving high school, to help paint houses and drum up business during the summer months. Taylors area is from North Bend to Sammamish, and the season runs from the end of college, in mid-June, through Labor Day.
Hell be hiring two teams of four painters, including two crew chiefs, and is looking for manageable, responsible young people.
It sounded like something that would be interesting, Taylor said. Its not your typical summer job.
Taylor, 19, is the son of Peggy and Greg Taylor of North Bend. He is studying music and business at Western.
