Harper's Ferry?

Anyone on here familiar with the Harper's Ferry area? We are looking to relocate there and I could use a line on a welding or supervisory manufacturing job.

Depending on how far you want to commute... for that type job you might want to try looking in Frederick, or Hagerstown, MD. or Winchester, VA.

Charles Town, WV is close to HF so maybe something there.

The MARC train runs from HF to Washington, DC, so again, depending on how far you're willing to commute...

Good luck.

My buddy and I are just up the road in Charles Town/Ranson. Can't say I know of any job openings though.

I posted your request for info from, locals to Harpers Ferry, in this thread...

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...9#post21709939

Hopefully someone will help you out but WanyeJ pretty much hit the nail on the head regarding work options in that area. Charlestown WV and Frederick MD are the two closest towns where you might be able to find work but the closer you are willing to commute to DC the higher the salary.

You could try Canam Steel or Builders First Source, both located in Point of Rocks, MD

http://www.canam-steeljoists.ws/www/...s/careers?open

http://www.bldr.com/careers/

The open positions listed didn't seem quite what you were looking for (Canam did have a project manager position), but you never know.

I live across the Potomac from Harper's Ferry. It's a nice area :)

internalcombust, you have been harvesting inputs on this website regarding a move to TENNESSEE.

Why have you changed your target relocation destination?

Just wondering; inmates have provided their best advice regarding Tennessee; other venues, like Harper's Ferry, appear limitless.

We just spent a week in TN and really liked it. On our way home we veered off of 81 to find a place to camp for the night and ended up in Harpers Ferry. We really fell in love with the area so now we are torn between WV and TN. Work and property are going to play a very large role in where we end up at this point. We are so torn, we are contemplating hitching a pop up to the back of the Tacoma and touring the south east for 2 months just to see more of what is out there. Coming from Maine, the south east really caught us off guard. We were hoping and discovered that it has lots to offer, we are just having a hard time deciding where to hang our hats. I appreciate all the help from the many inmates who have helped us try to figure things out. I hope I haven't come across as abusing such a wonderful resource. Our house sale is closing in two weeks, then we are on the run.....

I always loved the Harpers Ferry area(I'm ashamed to say I'm a native Marylander but left in 80'). Recommend you settle in WV. Took many trips on the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal tow path as a boy. Lock 33 and the ruins of the Salty Dog tavern are at HP.
