>all apprenticeship positions require 3-5 years of construction experience, no one cares that I did this program

I've been bamboozled once more. I tried with welding and this same thing happened. How do I actually get into a trade? I'm getting frustrated

    You don't have to be officially declared an apprentice to get experience.
    Apprenticeships have obligations on both sides of the equation and candidates having some experience and familiarity with the work makes it easier for both sides to meet those obligations and not waste time and an apprenticeship slot on someone who is an unknown quantity who might not work out.

    The same way you get a job in any other field, you have to be socially capable and get the job through a referral otherwise you stand no chance.
    No friends? Better off just getting neet bux.

    Work as a "construction helper" or something. If you're competent and not addicted to anything it should become obvious you're better than most of your coworkers pretty quickly and you can ask for more opportunities, and even if not it'll pay a few bills while you get experience and have something to put on a resume to make your lies look more realistic while you apply for better jobs.

      I'll look for something like this, thanks anon. Most of the stuff in my area outside real commercial construction is pre-fab framing shops, which offer shit pay and have no room for advancement, so I'm hesitant to go that route.

      Is this really how trades work? they all have no experience required from my research, state supported apprenticeships just require a ged

      seems so, unless I'm looking in the wrong place. I've tried the job boards, the state sponsored apprenticeship site, I've gone to career fairs at the local union hall, and it seems like there's always a gap between people interested in the industry, and what the industry requires from those interested

      don't apply for apprenticeships if they're not calling back.

      Get a beat up old pickup truck and apply for wherever needs help, get insurance to use it for work purposes and tell them you can help move junk around. You will not get to do the cool trades stuff at first. Most early trades work is just cleaning up, lifting heavy shit, lubing machinery, etc, necessary but zero skill and hardly stimulating.

      It pays fine but you need to cross the boomer toll bridge first. They refuse to hire anyone without training, then they refuse to let you actually apply your training until you have 2-4 years of experience (just enough time to forget everything). Remember that ads will usually ask for about 25-50% more experience than is necessary. If they actually are looking to hire, most places asking for 2 years experience will take a guy with 1, if they're asking for 4 years experience, 2-3 will usually do, etc. Be sure to see how long the ad's been up. If they've been waiting for applicants for a while, that information is useful while negotiating wages/hours/etc.

      Good luck, and for god's sake read your contract before you sign it. There's a lot of labour contract shenanigans going on right now.

      good tips thank you

      Did you network with the instructors of the training program? or are you retarded?

      yeah I did, but they don't have any good connections. just a couple old guys that have been out of the game for years, and don't have a realistic vision of how things are now 🙁
