Trying to get into the arb industry as a woman

Recommended Posts

What a funny thread. 

 

OP, the problem you have is that you see yourself as a woman trying to get into Arb work. Why you think there should be some sort of help for poor defenceless women to get into Arb is beyond me. Why on earth should a charity pay for your tickets? Do what everyone else does and get yourself a job / find some money, do some tickets, learn to drive, and then look for the job you actually want. Either that, or do what I did and start your own business and employ the climbers to start you off. 

 

The sooner you stop thinking of yourself as a woman who isn't being given opportunity, the sooner you will get on. 

 

I post the above as someone who has employed female arbs in the past (one of them being the best staff member I ever had).

no problems there, just as strong as the blokes but prettier to look at, hopefully.

I have actually found a company who is willing to put me through all of the tickets needed whilst I learn. I’m not seeing myself as defenceless, I have just said I’m having a hard time trying to get into the industry.

Fair play Steve, randomly accusing someone of being a cyclist is bang out of order 🤯
