Salvager is a now a skill
A Salvager has a trained eye to see value and purpose where others see trash. They know a wasted object can be reused or restored into something great. At thrift stores, garage sales, junkyards, beaches, or on the street, they seek the unappreciated treasures everywhere around us.
In designing this Skill, we tried to reflect the diversity of approaches to salvaging. One person will find a dumpster full of treasure and climb right in. For another, an antique shop is as crazy as they’ll ever get. We’ve heard that we have to consume a lot less. Now, how do we to integrate that practice into daily life in a natural way?
Zachary Bruggeman, 14 years old, is the youngest person to apply for a job at DIY. He lives in British Columbia, learned to program when he was 8 and now he wants to be our engineering intern so he can learn Node.js.
He made us a webpage with his pitch, hosted on Dropbox, and sent it over to us. Of course, when I asked if we should could share the link, he said he had to ask his parents first!
His second interview with us is later this week. ;)
