Greg Buntain Ian Collings - Fort Standard looking for Hire!

Greg Buntain and Ian Collings, founders of Fort Standard shared an email as follows: Please assist in their search, and give'em a hand moving for cryin out loud! They write:

"Hello Friends-

My apologies for the impersonal mass email but Fort Standard needs an intern/employee asap. Two would be even better.
Ian and I are gearing up for a project at the Museum of Art and Design in April as well as exhibiting new work in three or four different venues during Design Week in May. I have attached some press releases of some recent work which you can feel free to forward to anyone who may be interested.

We need someone who can think on their feet, is efficient in a wood shop and preferably knows Solid Works and CS5. Our shop is located in Red Hook so they either need a car or a bicycle and some motivation as there is not a lot of public transportation (we do have Fairway and great views of Lady Liberty however). They would also need a license and be able to drive our luxury cargo van.
We could easily keep someone busy with just production work but would prefer to have someone who can grow with us and be a team player. We cant afford to pay much at the moment but can offer incredible letters of recommendation and can negotiate terms of compensation based upon their levels of skill and commitment. Working hours can be flexible as we tend to work 18 hour days so anything to lighten the load would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Greg

P.S. - Fort Standard will be relocating around the corner to Pier 41 next weekend (the building where they filmed The Real World- Red Hook, and Jay-Z recently had a party) to a 7,000 sqft shop space with some serious top of the line industrial tools and a roof the size of a city block with water on three sides. Beers and food rewarded to anyone who wants to help us move."

  1. Ive never used the computer program solidworks and i have to take the CSWA exam next week. I looked at some practice problems and i couldnt replicate any of the designs so do i hvae a chance? Are there any tips about how to pass it because i know its multiple choice. I have to take it for a class and it has no impact on mygrade so ill just try and do my best but most answers will be guesses..
