Default Hello there from Bay Area, Cali.

Hello everyone!

I just stumbled on this forum and am just starting to check it out. My name is Josh and I am an Electrical Trainee from Santa Clara, Ca. I have been through schooling and have been working mostly residential for a bit over a year. Only working part time, due to good wages and benefits/insurance through my other job as a bellman/driver for Double Tree Hotel, which is Union. I do want to work as an electrician full time permanently, and eventually would like to maybe even be my own contractor. I'm about to be 30, with a boy on the way in august!

Wow, that's a lot of information... but that only scratches the surface of where I am at in life right now. Hopefully I can network and meet some other local Electricians here.

Thanks Harry. So far I have just been browsing this Intro section. Question, is this board used more by IBEW folks, or non-union, or a good balance?

Welcome to the forum. We don't judge based upon a yellow ticket. We all have something in common, we are electricians (most of us), and that is all that matters. Stick around, become addicted, and learn plenty.
