Have faith in yourself. An apprentice should be open to new ideas and not be afraid to start in lower positions that help them move up the ladder. Getting experience is critical because the internet will not train you on all aspects of the job. Manufacturing apprentices like their industry because they receive great benefits – vacation, health, dental, etc. – and they also get to be a part of making things. It is great to see a product you make being used in public. To know you had a part in the creation of an item, is a great feeling.
