About Painter

August 18th, 2017

Painters are hired to apply different types of paint to a wide range of surfaces including internal and external walls, doors, floors, and cabinets. Their job is not restricted to just painting. As part of their job, painters first scrape, smooth, and prime the surface to prepare the surface for painting. They then mix colors to obtain the desired shade and apply pain to the surface using the appropriate type of brush. After the painting is completed, they remove paint splatters and clean up the place.
There are no specific education requirements to become a painter. However, you must have sufficient experience to master the skill of painting so that the resultant effect is flawless and professional. This takes time and the best way to get the necessary practice is by completing an apprenticeship under the supervision of an experienced painter. This can be a physically demanding job as it requires staying in different positions for long hours, depending on the kind of surface you are hired to paint.
The best way to convince prospective employers that you have excellent painting skills is by carrying along photographs of work you have completed. Be prepared to answer all kinds of questions about your experience as a painter - what kinds of surfaces have you worked on, what painting equipment did you use, are you comfortable with working while standing on a tall ladder or are you afraid of heights?
