What is the work experience expected as Apprentice Electrician?
I'm fresh out of college and graduated in December 2012. I have had very little experience and I'm afraid that when I get hired on, I'm going to fail at my job. The reason I feel this is because I started electrical training in 2009 and finished the classes in mid 2010. After I finished electrical training, I tried getting hired on with companies, but most of them were full-time and I couldn't find one part-time; so I stayed focus on school from then on. I've only had the training and little experience and I'm wondering if thats going to effect me to work or get hired on as an electrician. I would like some advice as to what I should tell the person who's hiring me or what should I do. Here are more questions: Does a Electrician Boss expect you to know everything in the field? Do you start fresh when you're hired? What do you do mostly as an Apprentice? Thank You!
