    Looking for apprenticeship!!

    Hello,
    I am a student in the HVAC program at NEIT and I am looking to get an apprenticeship. I have been having a tough time considering I am a girl, and I need some help. Any insight would be great. Thanks a bunch.

    Like college, learning a trade should be looked at as an investment. other than the obvious tuition you paid, you may also need to volunteer to shadow a friend who works in the trade for free or offer yourself as an intern/ helper with a company. I run an apprentice program at the company I work for and can tell you that there is no experience more valuable than putting your hands on the equipment in the field. Take any opportunity you can get to do this and you'll get a foothold somewhere.
