Have you ever found yourself staring out the window wondering what you want to do with your life? Maybe you’re looking right at it. A Glazier cut, fit and installed that window. Windows are definitely a big part of the job, but Glaziers also build glass walls, furniture and most other things made with glass.
As a Glazier, you’ll need to have a keen eye for details in order to measure precisely and detect the subtle flaws in what other people just look through. Glaziers have excellent dexterity and strength to lift awkward-sized glass. They’re also careful drivers and aren’t afraid of heights.
