    [VIC] WTB: Mature age apprenticeship

    Coming to the end of my overseas holidays and finally decided to stop looking for work in my old area when i go back. I'm keen on starting a mature age apprenticeship, mechanic or carpentry, but am open to ideas. I'm not after big dollars just a stable career. Located eastern suburbs of melbourne, but happy to travel (to an extent).

    I've got a couple leads that i'm chasing up, but if anyone has anything please let me know.

      Fuck electrical, finished my apprenticeship for electrical fitter early this year: its shit. In general the industry is pretty cutneck, too many lebs/asians doing cheapo install work (for sparkies), any kind of industrial machine is 90% made in china/taiwan and usually not very serviceable (all depends on what it is obviously)

      For big big projects where the decent $$$ is at, NSW and VIC are dead. WA, QLD and soon to be SA are where the big bucks are at.

      Do plumbing! Plumbers dont undercut each other for work, its a trade that cant be outsourced by foreigners and they get paid shitloads!
      If I had my time again (and at 22 years old, I dont think it'll be too far away), I would have done a plumbing apprenticeship.

              Same with spray painting, I scraped the corner of my bar on a pole, looke at it and went meh.
              That was over 6 months ago and I still have no desire to fix it.
              Most likely sell the car that way too

                      powercor, ok thanks for that.

                      i did four years of maths at university (in conjunction with my other study).


                      the mechanic apprenticeship, would be performance based and also tuning. unfortunately they just hired someone, although i still need to talk to the boss in a couple weeks.

                        chippies get shit money... and by shit IIRC they are one of the lower paid trades as an apprentice and as a trade.

                        Go with kyles advice. Every cunt I know in that field is on good or great $$$ and they don't seem to hate their jobs. Having said that, all of the are 35+ and when they started didn't expect the top job in the 1st 5 years.

                        failing that do anything to get on a vic union building site and the $$$ is good. A peggy can see 80k +.

                        I was earnming more money doing that in '95 than I am now. I'm not complaing, but the coin is bull shit good... as an extreme example, ~$800 a week living away from home allowance for some one who is a 40 min drive from home. (de-sal).

                        or learn to drive a digger. I am amazed at how much a good operator can make sitting on some one else's machine
                        .... because every driver experiences the destructive potential of the effortless surge of power available through the smallest of body movements.

                          yeah a few buddies are concreters on big union sites and they always have coin.

                          as i mentioned its not necessarily about money.

                            that'd be why I am not there.

                            surveying?

                            good coin, blundstones, travel,outdoors/indoors and good coin?

                            math too?
