Vocational and Apprenticeship

Everyone has a skill and passion. As an example, I have a deep contempt for mechanical and fixing items. I am terrible and impatient and will no longer shop at Ikea for that reason. It has to be put together for me, no instructions and tools just do it for me. This is me. 

The exciting thing is that there are so many skilled workers who could and should take advantage of apprenticeship opportunities and eventually open their own business. You are the boss as well as having  the responsibility to perform.  You must learn before jumping in with both feet first. 

The opportunity is unprecedented whether it be construction to loan financing to vital skills required to allow for the massive expansion going on in states like Colorado. The money to be made as a certified skilled laborer as an example is extremely high and far outshoots traditional jobs outside of college like marketing or communications. 

The value of controlling your own destiny by owning your own business (maybe just a sole proprietor) is not to be understated. I was shocked to find out how much I needed to pay a neighborhood plumber actually attending one of my block parties when I discovered a kitchen sink leak. My neighbor agreed to go home, get his tools and fix it up. I received a bill for $275 for a weekend emergency billing rate for less than 20 minutes of work. 

I am not saying that I got ripped off. I am saying that is what the market is for the services that my neighbor provided. The key though is to swallow your pride and look for an apprentice opportunity with your local union teams or a larger plumbing subcontractor. Getting these opportunities are tough and competitive. Let us help you prepare for the preparation process of identifying and nailing the interview. 

Lets talk it through and we can make a plan. I offer free 30 no obligation consultations to discuss any stages in the process. I offer a large variety of student friendly priced live via conferencing courses that you may consider.
