This week to celebrate National Careers and Apprenticeship Week we sat down with ThinkForward’s three apprentices, Nargis, Aaliyah and Justas.
I applied to be a ThinkForward apprentice as I wanted to gain more maturity by working with people who had experience in what I wanted to do. Being a ThinkForward participant when I was in school, I was really excited when the opportunity to join the ThinkForward team came up. Working for ThinkForward I know that I’m helping others and actually making a difference – Justas.
Being an apprentice is not easy. Making sure you’re on top of work and school is a challenge. But I knew I wanted to apply for an apprenticeship after my sister completed one and I saw how great it was for her career and how it opened up so many job opportunities in what she wanted to work in – Aaliyah.
Working for ThinkForward has had an amazing impact on my mindset and my life. Somewhere along the journey this experience became more than just a job but became a passion and something I absolutely love doing. It has also opened a lot of doors for me and prepared me for my future career – Nargis.
An apprenticeship gives you so many good experiences and opportunities. I am learning from my mistakes and so many things from my colleagues too - Justas.
