Small update on my career change.
I never know if anyone cares but here I am...
So if you remember i popped a post up weeks ago asking for advice on getting in to the industry, the comment section turned in to a total sh#t show of
'Don't do it'
'Its not for women'
'you're to weak'
'Don't need women on site'
But anyway, didnt put me off.
I've booked on for my cs30 in 2 weeks' time (sooner that orginally planned) and after sending out a bunch of emails looking for work experience, a guy has given me a chance, and I had my first day yesterday.
He was impressed with my work ethic and hes recommended me to another guy who's offered me 2 further days work.
So actually all is going great, the guy I worked with on the first day was excellent.
Was happy to stop often and teach me as we were going and in return I worked my socks off.
We (he) felled a tree and I cleared the ground, shifted tools, ran the chipper and did general ground stuff.
It was a great day and I learnt alot and at no point did I feel my sex was a barrier.
