I am very interested in learning the electrical trade. What is the best way to get my foot in the door on an apprenticeship? I have replied to a few craigslist adds but I want to really get my name out there to increase my chances. Also, do new apprentices usually get 40 hours a week? I would need to work at least full time if I am going to be able to survive on the low starting rate of an apprentice. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
