Apprentice or Employer?
I didn’t really want to go to college after finishing school, and an apprenticeship was best for myself to gain the skills and experience I need. Since I started the apprenticeship I’ve really picked up the ability to communicate well and make people hang on my words. Earning money is also a massive bonus!
