    Hi Mike,

    Wow this list of partners is so small. I want to help improve it.

    There’s a company called USIC who hires technicians responsible for locating utilities underground. The company trains people for the job – no college or certification needed. Their job listing page is here: http://www.usicllc.com/work-at-usic

    My brother got a job locating for USIC and he’s loving it. The pay is good. The benefits are good. And he even gets paid to not work during the off season (winter).

    All of this can be had without a college degree or school training program. The company trains you instead.

    I’ll end my post with a blurb from a recent article where I talk about the knowledge it takes to do this locating job: http://www.howtogetmorerightanswers.com/#!Gaming-the-ACT-Is-that-the-right-way/c1q8z/556b77170cf298b2d3f51236

    > … I remember students complaining that their professor would put problems on the test that weren’t covered in the lectures or homework. They thought that it’s not fair. But they’re wrong. That’s the point of the test! It’s to check your understanding of the concepts by changing up the situations so that you can’t just memorize your way through the material. It requires that you understand the abstract concepts such that you can apply them to any situation that the concepts apply to. Any. That’s any infinite set.
    >
    > That’s actually how the world works! Like for those guys that locate utilities underground, there’s no such thing as studying every single possible situation and getting tested on all of them. Instead, it’s an infinite set of possible situations, and what they are supposed to learn is all the necessary general-purpose information about electricity and other physics concepts, meant to be applied universally, to any possible situation that a locator can find himself in.

      Hey thanks for this comment/post! I’m looking into USIC for a job thanks to this post. It seems like work I’d enjoy.

    • Jerry Holaway

      I have looked into that job and it is ok pay but it is a good start especially if they give regular raises like every 3 or 6 months, my biggest problem is waiting to even hear anything, seriously it has been 13 days since I applied online and haven’t heard one peep. I tried to call (recruiting number) them to check on my application but get a recording. So I continue to apply for other relatively decent paying jobs because I am not going to wait for one employer to finally make up their mind.

    • Steve randyl

      Just warning y’all, USIC is a good starter job. Their pay is not very good. Friend of mine works there and has for the last 10 years and the most he makes is 15.00 hr and he is barely i mean barely getting by. Their last raise to him was .50 a hour after 2 years since the previous raise of .25 a hour. They work 40 -60 hour weeks and are on call 24 x7 every month for a week.

      I’m not opposed to hard work but after 10 years at a job starting out at 12 a hour and your only making 15 after that amount of time its time to find better job.

  • Ann Gallup

    Regards,

      With your communications background, have you considered looking into either aviation or trucking company communications? I don;t have any specific referrals but thought I’d throw the suggestion out there. Best of luck!

    Im willing to do whatever as long as i can work full time im willing to relocate just need someone to give me a job

  • Wrkrrights

    Seems to me that any and all Building And Construction Trades Council Apprenticeships would be valid and valuable starts for folks looking for a career. Among other things, they not only provide appropriate training and the opportunity to earn while you learn, they also provide a benefits package that is good for you, your Family and your Future. Check them out!

  • Chris Burns

    Wow… I eagerly scrolled to this page in hopes of finding more than just 4 partnered employers. Skilled trades are so hard to get into because they require experience… Experience that you only get from working in the industry or through apprenticeship programs. I’ve been waiting for nearly 2 YEARS to get into the IBEW and start my apprenticeship but by now, my interest has faded. NOBODY wants to train people anymore. It “takes too much time” and “costs too much money”. Thousands of people, including myself, would kill (not literally) for the opportunity to get in with a company that actually cares about their employees and helps them grow… not cut corners, hours, and operating costs and still expect the same quality of work. Im an experienced mechanic in the bowling industry and all I want is to get into welding/fabricating or some form of trade work. Unfortunately that dream seems impossible because I need to go to school to obtain the required experience, but I cant go to school because of the hours that I need to put in at my current job to make enough money to survive. Its a vicious circle and its not an easy choice, thats for sure. My entire family has been in the trades in some form or another, I’d like to follow in their footsteps since it’s all I know. So please, if anyone hears or knows about trade opportunities in the Sacramento area, please let me know :)
