How do I sell myself??
I'm a 40 year old male. I love plants and gardening. I have done gardening for a couple of people over the years, who were very happy with my work. My home was in the local gardenwalk last year. I am mostly self taught. I would say I am fairly knowledgeable and a hard worker. I currently work in construction. I would love to someday move into a horticulture career of some type. I would really like something in plant production / greenhouse type of work. My problem for the last two years I have been applying for seasonal greenhouse help jobs, and I don't even get a interview. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. These are $5.50 - $6.00 jobs. I would think someone with experience and willingness to work would be a great find. Is there something employers look for that Im missing? Are there that many people applying for these jobs? I wonder if its my age. I don't know..
