Drywall Installers and Finishers

Exploring This Job

It may be possible for students to visit a job site and observe installers and finishers at work. Part-time or summer employment as a helper to drywall workers, carpenters, or painters or even as a laborer on a construction job is a good way to get some practical experience in this field. Any experience that you can obtain using tools—especially trowels, tape measures, utility knives, power saws, and other tools that are used by drywall installers and finishers—will be useful. You should also visit YouTube to watch videos of drywall professionals at work.
