Tom had 5 applications out within the Skilled Trades and the electricians called first so that’s the trade he went with! The thing he loves the most is the diversity of his job; there are so many different things you can do as an electrician. One of the best parts is “earning while you’re learning” with apprenticeships. Watch his job talk to hear about the 3 types of licenses an Electrician can obtain.
