which doesn`t help either."
Required studies or experience
There are few tertiary qualifications that will qualify you to become a painter. In most cases, there is a sort of apprenticeship to be served at a construction company or paint company where you will do on-the-job training and learn the art from someone who is more experienced than yourself. "This is especially helpful when it comes to mixing colours," Michael adds, "because that is one of the more difficult parts of the job. You need to learn the ability to recognize different colours as there are so many shades of a particular colour and choosing the wrong one in a situation can lead to costly delays."
To be a painter, you need to be someone who enjoys working outdoors. To do that, you need to be someone who can work with your hands, and do a meticulous job. Neatness and attention to detail are important here. You also need to be able to deal with people, take advice and offer advice when necessary.
An average day
Depending on the type of work done, the average day can be anything but average. This all depends on the areas that need to be painted and the places you need to work. On average, a painter begins work at 07:00 and works until 17:00 in the afternoon, and again, on average, the work-length is until the required job is done.
The worst thing about the job
"When the work is tough and there are many cracks that you have to fix before you can start. This is both time-consuming and frustrating as it delays the job."
The best thing about the job
"The fact that you can see a job to completion, and that you do different things every day."
