Will work for couch 2~3 months
Posted November 24th, 2012 - 9:49 pm by from Vancouver, Canada (Permalink)
Hello Vancouver Couchsurfers!

My name is Jake and I'm from Arizona.
I'm hoping to stay in Vancouver for 2~3 months starting around Dec 14th and I'm wondering if anyone here has some work that I could do a few hours a day to "pay for" my couch for such an extended stay.
I have thought about working for accommodation at a youth hostel, and I've also checked on helpx.net, but I thought I'd try here as well, just in case I could find something more personal and homey than working in a hostel (isn't that why we Couchsurf instead of staying in hostels anyway :)
I have basic automotive, mechanical, computer, and handyman skills, but they are either learned from my dad or self taught, I have no formal training. But I am a fast learner and a very hard worker.
I'm also really easy going and low maintenance, friendly, outgoing, respectful, and I don't smoke.
All I really need is a place to sleep, a place to shower and a place to plug in my laptop and do some writing. I can be entirely self sufficient with regard to food. I can also cook Vegan/Vegetarian Indian food for you and your family a couple nights a week if you want.

If you'd like to meet and "interview" me before deciding I will be in Vancouver a few days before I want to start.

Even if you don't have work for me, or a place for me to stay, but do have some ideas for me I would love to hear them.
