There is a 15 post rule for the Membership Committee to process your application for Professional Membership here. "Joy" posting doesn't count.
So, how do you bring your post count up and give pertinent information for the MC to consider? Easy, post in this thread about your experiences and the jobs you have been on. Speak to each other about how and why you decided to get into this business and how you expect to advance in this trade. Tech School?? Talk about your classes and what you were taught.
Before you know it your 15 will be 60. Good luck and Welcome to H-Talk.
