Getting job experience while in high school or on summer break can payoff when you graduate. It has for 18-year-old Jacob Wood who joined Daybreak Wednesday to talk about his new career as an apprentice electrician.
Wood said it wouldn’t have been possible without his hard work and planning throughout high school. He took on-the-job training classes at King Career Center before getting an entry level job at Hotwire Electric. The local labor union, IBEW, chose him for an apprenticeship right out of high school because of his work ethic.
