Ingham, MI 2006
The IBEW changed my life. My only regret is that I didn’t join the IBEW sooner!
The Apprenticeship program has been a huge asset to my career choice as an electrician with the IBEW 665. Between the knowledge and experience of instructors and journeyman (brother and sisters), I have been given a great opportunity to grow my confidence, skill and level of responsibility on the job. I have been fortunate enough to work alongside many great electricians. Thanks to the opportunities IBEW has given me, I can be a part of continuing what so many before me have established.
My career in the IBEW is anything but boring. Starting my electrical apprenticeship in 1991 I learned a skill that I could take with me wherever I go. Through the years I have met many brothers and sisters from many IBEW locals all around the country on the different jobs I have worked on. I have also had the chance to travel to many places along the way. I am working on the 25th year in the trade and still love what I do.
I was told that the Union was only interested in my money. Boy were they right, I have made more money with the Union then I ever did before.
