I had been working in a call centre for two years when I decided I had enough. It's so boring sitting answering calls all day and sometimes the customers are really mean. I started doing a pre-apprenticeship on the weekends and I really liked it. The teachers at the trade school took time to explain everything to us. It's so exciting to get out of the office and onto the building site, using skills I learned in classes to really make a difference. This blog is for people who want to get on a new career path through trade school.
