a registered apprentice is allowed to solicit work, for local 787 anyway.
Hello ! I am curious if you have obtained a job? I have recently become a member myself but after calling a majority of contractors I have been told that they are not hiring right now. Also I have heard they are continuously accepting new members anyway.
I am about to join the 787 now after already being in the trade for 8 years. I got my 313A and G1. I did it how jrmech had mentioned, found a union company and did an interview, they wanted me and were willing to go through the process mentioned to hire me. They told the union that they can't find the skill sets i have within the unemployed members of 787 and that is why they are looking externally.
yes bro u can do self study but experience is must..you should collect experience in this field..
Here's how it went for me:
1. Got approved for hire in March
2. Got a job in May doing industrial refrigeration construction
3. Construction job was terrible. Refueling generators, sweeping floors, organizing parts trailer, etc.
4. Didn't learn a thing about refrigeration and was subsequently laid off after 6 months.
5. Started from scratch in non-union after couldn't find work for 2 months.
6. Been servicing resi/comm HVAC ever since and I've learned a ton and feel I've become a competent technician.
I don't hold anything against 787. I was as green as it gets and wasn't suited for the type of work I was hired for. We'll see what the future holds.

It is difficult for me to even imagine what it would be like to go into this field.... basically "knowing nothing."
I can't imagine what it would be like to get hired, and not already know:
...all because of an overriding curiosity about how things work.
I suppose the best idea is to ensure that an individual has provided THEMSELVES with a basic understanding of applied physics before undertaking a trade such as ours.
