    I need to obtain an apprentice with your company in order to finish my education. I have taken all the required coursework and need apprenticeship in order to graduate, in that I would be a great addition to integrated electrical services.
    I have not worked in an electrical field but I’m working on the industry close to artisans and engineers (Mining as a Plant Operator) which it enables me to learn here and there.
