Trying to get into the arb industry as a woman

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone :). I’ve been finding it difficult to even get my foot in the door in the industry, I’m too old to go to college and get my tickets (I’m 25) I do have some experience. But I feel like I’m getting no where. I have offered to work for a month for free if companies are willing to put me through my tickets, does anyone have any suggestions please 😅.

 

thankyou

Really? That seems odd. Or do you mean for free?

25 isn’t too old to go on a full-time course.

Sorry let me rehash that, I’m too old to get any funding for courses and not in the financial position to fund the courses myself 😅

I assume you plan on paying for your own PPE and Saws etc?

You are not too old to go to college. I was 23 when I went and was one of the youngest. You will make connections and if you do a full time course it will give you a grounding to do advisory work when you are too old to climb if that is what you want.

To get the funding I’d have to be 23 24
