Dear Sirs,
I have encountered about finding or making a word for calling a person who makes his/her living on obtaining money from being hired to do some thing (an employee of someone in term of a verb decribing of being employed). Do you have any proper word/s for this kind of being employed, I mean a person who gets the money from being hired to do something for the hirer. I actually don't know how to explain it in English, but I think you can understand what I mean. The verb or words explaining the action of getting a job by being hired by someone/ waiting for someone to hire or employ him/her to do a job for. Is it correct If I say something like these. :-

Undertaking of being employed on the work of making things on dress making/ to be employed on dress making / a hair dressing employee /a person who is in the employ of hair dressing/to be hired to work for hair dressing/ to be employed on hair dressing.

Please help. Thank you for your attention in my topic.

Best regards,
Piak

I am not certain that I understand your question. If you are looking for words thsat describe the person's activity, you would be looking for as noun. A person who makes dresses is a dress maker, a tailor, or a seamstress. A person who works in a hair salon is a hair dresser, a beautician, or a barber.

If you are looking for a verb to describe the action, it is different. A dressmaker sews, tailors, or makes dresses. A hairdresser styles, cuts, or colors hair.

If I missed your question, please ask again.

Repeat my question

Dear Sir,

Thank you for your time extended to my topic but it was indeed my fault for putting such unclear meaning to you. It is because my English is not good enough to express what I really needed to say.

My point is that I need to know how to say or explain the occupation of someone who works on the employ of someone for a job, take it for example, for the hair dresser, he will get money when a customer come to use his service. Is it possible to say that his occupation is to “Undertake the service of being employed on a hair dressing /or being in the service of hair dressing/to be hired for hair dressing/ to be employed on hair dressing. I mean the verb explaining the occupation of a person. Sorry for creating this inconvenience to you.

Thank you again, sir.

Ah! We would say that he/she is employed as a hairdresser or works as a hairdresser.
