Hi, my name is Scott and I live in Fort Wayne, IN. Currently I attend Ivy Tech and trying to make a break into the electrical field. I have been a transmission builder for the last 9 years and have seen my benefits dwindle to nothing and no increases in wages. So I applied to the union and praying that I get in. I have already taken the aptitude test and got a letter stating that I passed and now just waiting for the interview. I have some basic electrical knowledge but by no means am I considered an "electrician". I am currently working full time and attending school full time. I really want to pursue a career as an electrician. All advice and comments greatly appreciated. I look forward to learning from you guys.
