Thank you, and he 'wants it" its just whats left of his confidence has taken a hell of a beating, being out of work for 6 months, having to live with family who feel free to plant the "knife" of encouragement.........its a horrible situation that many folks are in. I'd like to go hide under a rock myself *L* but its my turn to support him. And im sure, that once he is working, his "true" self, confident, inquiring and determined will re appear.
In the meantime, we do the best we can. And i've kinda gotten attached to you guys *L

Has he taken any interviewing techniques courses? Does he have a professionally prepared resume? Interviewers of new especially raw employees can detect fear and lack of confidence. After an interview, jot down the questions asked by the interviewer and research the answers and memorize what they are asking. If he is asked a question he doesn't know, say "I'm not sure, but I can find the answer" . Interviewers are professionals and can spot inexperienced people trying to "wing" it and this is a sure turn off to owners. Winging it in this business can get you killed, kill someone else, or do serious property damage. Go into an interview with the attitude of I have the basic knowledge, now I'm eager to gain the experience. Use his electrical experience as his selling point.
thank you hammer *S the owner called him today, told him that he likes to hire his new guys entry level so that he can train them to his standards and not have to have them "unlearn" bad habbits. He is excited at the opportunity, and im pretty sure he wont try to sell himself as a seasoned pro, he knows better, he just wants to get his foot in the door and grow professionally
