  2. 2. Tatum Sherman: Founder of Resource Referral Tatum Sherman is the founder of Resource Referral, a company based in New Jersey, specializing in connecting employers with top notch, competent and deserving employees who can hit the ground running. Tatum Sherman has firsthand experience of the difficulties of being unemployed, having personally struggled to find a job earlier in her life. Some people turn to apprenticeship hoping to create room for themselves in the field of their choosing. For some, apprenticeship may not be an obvious choice. However, for those who wish to get started from scratch, an apprenticeship may be the best choice.
  3. 3. Enrolling for an apprenticeship program. Here are more reasons why you might want to consider enrolling for an apprenticeship program. 1. Practical Experience 2. Guidance and Professional Support 3. It’s Masterstroke for Your CV 4. You Earn While You Work 5. It Builds Networks
  4. 4. Practical Experience Experience is the best teacher! Apprenticeships offer a structured, challenging program that gives you firsthand experience of working in a busy job environment. You will have the opportunity to learn from established professionals with years of experience under their belts.
  5. 5. Guidance and Professional Support During apprenticeship, you are likely to be assigned a supervisor who will guide and support you throughout the period. A supervisor basically serves as your “godfather” by showing exactly how things are done. They are always ready to help with difficult assignments or tasks.
  6. 6. It’s Masterstroke for Your CV Employers love individuals who have participated in an apprenticeship program as it demonstrates willingness to learn. In addition, you are likely to gain transferable skills that can be used in multiple job settings. These include good communication skills and analytical skills, among others.
  7. 7. You Earn While You Work Most apprenticeship programs have basic pay, although the pay structure may differ from that of experienced hires. The minimum apprenticeship wage may differ from state to state, but the amount is usually enough for your personal upkeep. In some cases, an apprentice is subject to other benefits enjoyed by full-time employees. These may include pension contributions, social security schemes, leisure facilities and more.
  8. 8. It Builds Networks Since an apprenticeship gives you the opportunity to be involved in the day to day running of a business, meeting a lot of people comes as an added bonus. Tatum Sherman advises employees to seize the opportunity and forge strong professional relationships that can be helpful even after the completion of the program. Making a good name for yourself is important for the rest of your career. You never know where your career takes you next! You may find yourself asking for advice or help from people you meet during apprenticeship.
