Thanks ill look around. If I don't get in thenget on the phone and ask what is going to happen are you going to be on a two year waiting list? I get to looking for an electrician helper job,, look around at some electric motor shop see if they're hiring helpers. Community College electrician courses, domaint as much time as you can at Habitat for Humanity. get residential framing, electrical wiring experience. do stuff like that while you're waiting, what happens if you don't get into the Union?
Yeah but I have no electrical experience and also I don't know anything about electrical work. I'm probably going to take a class just to start out.just don't put all your eggs in the Union basket, you can do stuff on your own to better yourself in the electrical industry.
What I'm saying is the ibew doesn't mind taking in completely green apprentices. They like to teach you their ways and the less you know the more they can train you. Open shops typically like to hire apprentices with a little background because they can't afford to take the time to train a bunch of absolute greenies.Chazfool408 said:So what are you saying I should do? Wait to get in the Union or try to find work somewhere else where they can teach me?
well give the stuff I recommended to you in post number #4 a try.Yeah but I have no electrical experience and also I don't know anything about electrical work. I'm probably going to take a class just to start out.
