Posted by WIRE-Net on Nov 15, 2017 10:36:34 AM

This week marks the third annual National Apprenticeship Week (November 13-19). We are excited to take part in this celebration with so many other companies, individuals, and educators that are making a difference through apprenticeship programs. We believe apprenticeships work for everyone—from the business owner looking to recruit highly skilled and talented workers, to the job seeker wanting to advance their career. It works because youth and job seekers can earn while they learn, and employers can develop the talent they need to compete today and tomorrow.
